Heptanoic anhydride did not deliver indications of pyrophoric properties during the realization of other tests. The determination according to UN-MTC Procedure N.2 is not necessary.

Conclusions:
The test item did not deliver indications of pyrophoric properties during the realization of other tests.
Executive summary:

The test item did not deliver indications of pyrophoric properties during the realization of other tests.

Endpoint:
substances / mixtures which in contact with water emit flammable gases
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the organic substance does not contain metals or metalloids and hence, the classification procedure does not need to be applied

Description of key information

(a) Flammability: The flammability of liquids is determined on basis of their flashpoint (in combination with their boiling point).
(b) Pyrophoric properties: Heptanoic anhydride did not deliver indications of pyrophoric properties during the realization of other tests The determination according to UN-MTC Procedure N.2 is not necessary.
(c) Contact with water: In accordance with section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the study on flammability in contact with water does not need to be conducted as the substance contains no metals or metalloids and therefore will not release flammable gases in contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable
