Reference
Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
Study period:
The study was conducted on 10 March 2017.
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because there are no chemical groups present in the molecule which are associated with explosive properties
Qualifier:
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Theoretical consideration, based on chemical structure of the components in the formulation.
GLP compliance:
no
Remarks:
(not relevant)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
Commercial Name: Musk R1
Chemical Nature: 11-oxahexadecan-16-olide
Givaudan Code No.: 7289001
Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
From the structural formula of Musk R1, it can be concluded that the substance is not explosive. The substance does not have the functional groups associated with explosive properties or chemical instability. Therefore it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that Dimethyl Octenone is incapable of causing explosions by action of external heating sources. As such further testing is not needed.
Executive summary:

A theoretical assessment based on chemical structure of the components in the formulation was carried out to assess the explosion risk of the test substance.

From the structural formula of Musk R1, it can be concluded that the substance is not explosive. The substance does not have the functional groups associated with explosive properties or chemical instability. Therefore it can be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that Musk R1 is incapable of causing explosions by action of external heating sources.
