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 experience in production or handling shows that the substance does not react with water, e.g. the substance is manufactured with water or washed with water
Endpoint:
pyrophoric liquids
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
other:
Test procedure:
ignition time on contact with air
Remarks:
Ignition on contact with air refers to either Pyrophoric solids or Pyrophoric liquids depending on physical state (migrated information).
Remarks on result:
no ignition on contact with air (not further specified)
Remarks:
corresponding to 'no' in migrated source record.

Description of key information

The reported lower explosive limit and upper explosive limit of isododecane are respectively 0.5  and 4.0% v/v.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
flammable

Additional information

The substance being a liquid, the flash point has been considered to determine its flammability on contact with a flame. Considering the chemical structure and the experience in handling and use, pyrophoric properties and flammability on contact with water can be ruled out for this substance.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The measured flash point is > 23°C but < 60°C (cf section 4.11).
