Specific details on test material used for the study:
Name of the test chemical: Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acidMolecular Formula: C8H10O8Molecular Weight: 234.159 g/molSmile Notation: OC(=O)C[C@H]([C@H](CC(=O)O)C(=O)O)C(=O)OInChI : 1S/C8H10O8/c9-5(10)1-3(7(13)14)4(8(15)16)2-6(11)12/h3-4H,1-2H2,(H,9,10)(H,11,12)(H,13,14)(H,15,16)/t3-,4+Substance type: organic Physical state: Solid
Key result
Test procedure:
other: not specified
Remarks on result:
other: Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid not ignited when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C was brought in contact with it.
Interpretation of results:
other: non flammable
Conclusions:
Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that sodium Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
Executive summary:

Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that  sodium Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus Butane-1,2,3,4-tetracarboxylic acid was considered non-flammable for chemical safety assessment.
