Endpoint:
explosive properties of explosives
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
Conclusions:
The test item does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive properties. Additionally, the oxygen balance of the molecule is –203 (which is below –200), which allows classification of a substance as non-explosive (even if chemical groups associated with explosive hazards are present in the molecule - which is not the case for the test item). Based on this screening level assessment, testing for explosive properties of the test item is considered to be scientifically unjustified. The test item is therefore not classified as an explosive substance.
Executive summary:

The test item does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive properties. Additionally, the oxygen balance of the molecule is –203 (which is below –200), which allows classification of a substance as non-explosive (even if chemical groups associated with explosive hazards are present in the molecule - which is not the case for the test item). Based on this screening level assessment, testing for explosive properties of the test item is considered to be scientifically unjustified. The test item is therefore not classified as an explosive substance.

Description of key information

The study for explosiveness does not need to be conducted for the test item because the molecule does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive properties. Additionally, the oxygen balance of the test item is –203.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test item is not classified as an explosive substance, because the molecule does not contain chemical groups associated with explosive properties. Additionally, the oxygen balance of the molecule is –203, which allows classification of a substance as non-explosive (even if chemical groups associated with explosive hazards are present - which is not the case for the test item).
