Remarks:
see "Remarks on result"
Method:
other: reaction groups were estimated using the molecular structure, the oxygen balance using an equation as per UN recommendations and calorimetric tests using DSC
Parameter:
other: taking into account reactive groups, oxygen balance and calorimetric test
Result:
result is considered "-" (negative)
Remarks on result:
other: Based on expert statement
Remarks:
the test material is not expected to exhibit explosive properties

Based on reactive groups and calorimetric test, the T002615 is not to be classified as explosive material and no experimental determination according to the EC test guideline A.14 has to be performed.

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
In conclusion, the substance was considered to be not explosive and does not have a potential for a rapid energy release.

Description of key information

Based on reactive groups and calorimetric test, T002615 is not to be classified as explosive material and further testing is not required (Expert Statement, Lindemann, 2003).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Explosiveness:
non explosive

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

T002615 does not need to be classified as explosive as based on the chemical structure T002615 does not contain any chemically instable or highly energetic groups that might lead to an explosion.
