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

Description of key information

Aluminium vanadium tetraoxide is non explosive.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

non explosive

Additional information

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex VII, Section 7.11, Column 2, testing for explosive properties is not considered to be required for aluminium vanadium tetraoxide. Aluminium vanadium tetraoxide is considered to be “inert” in the context of explosivity, since it already represents aluminium and vanadium in its highest oxidation state and is void of any chemical structures commonly associated with explosive properties, such as metal peroxides, peroxo-acid-anions, azides, and halogen oxides. Further, it is noted that despite long-term industrial use of the substance, it is not classified for explosive properties according to UN transport regulations. In addition, long-term industrial experience in practical handling of aluminium vanadium tetraoxide indicates that it is not explosive.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Aluminium vanadium tetraoxide does not need to be classified according to CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 since explosive properties are not considered relevant based on the lack of functional groups.
