Any other information on results incl. tables

A screening test via DSC (differential scanning calorimetry) was conducted from

0°C to 520 °C.

During the DSC run three exothermic events caused by decomposition was observed at

an onset of 242.93 °C, 358.70 °C and 369.27 °C and this were integrated to derive the

related energy (in J/g). The related energies of the observed exothermal events were

10.87 J/g, 88.23 J/g and 24.36 J/g.

Based on the exothermal events, it is stated:

- the released energy is less than 300 J/g, the test item is no subject to the classification

procedures for self-reactive substances.

- the released energy is less than 500 J/g and the onset of exothermic decomposition

is below 500 °C, the acceptance procedures for Class 1 explosives need not to be

applied.

according to the UN Handbook “Recommendations on the transport of dangerous goods;

Manual of tests and criteria” (2009).

The measurement of indium after calibration met the validity criteria. Therefore, the result

of the study is considered valid.
