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
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance contains chemical groups associated with explosive properties which include oxygen, but the calculated oxygen balance is less than - 200
Justification for type of information:
The oxygen balance of the substance is -267.92.

Bis(2-hydroxyethyl)oleylmethylammonium chloride; CAS number 18448-65-2, EC Number 242-332-0 has a molecular formula of C23H48NO2Cl and a molecular weight of 406.0857.

The oxygen balance was calculated using the equation :-

Oxygen balance = -1600 x [(2.x) + (y/2) + m - z] / molecular weight

Where :-
x = the number of carbon atoms
y = the number of hydrogen atoms
m = the number of metal atoms
z = the number of oxygen atoms

Oxygen balance = -1600 x [(2 x 23) + (48 / 2) - 2] / 406.0857

Oxygen balance = -267.92%
