Description of key information

This study has been performed according to OECD and EC guideline and according to GLP principles. Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

The study available for this endpoint (Brekelmans M., 2011) was conducted according to the following guidelines and GLP principles:

-       EU Method A. 13 (Pyrophoric Properties of Solids and Liquids)

-       United Nations (UN), UN no. ST/SG/AC. 10/11/Rev. 4: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Part III: Classification Procedures, Test N. 3: Test Method for Pyphoric Liquids, 2003.

-       United Nations (UN), UN no. ST/SG/AC. 10/11/Rev. 4: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Appendix 6: Screening Procedures, 2003.

DIMETHYL GLUTARATE has no pyrophoric properties.

The study availible for this endpoint (Brekelmans M., 2011) was conducted according to the following guidelines and GLP principles:

-       EU Method A. 12 (Flammability (Contact with Water))

-       United Nations (UN), UN no. ST/SG/AC. 10/11/Rev. 4: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Part III: Classification Procedures, Test N. 5: Test Method for Substances which in Contact with Water Emit Flammable Gases, 2003.

-       United Nations (UN), UN no. ST/SG/AC. 10/11/Rev. 4: Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, Appendix 6: Screening Procedures, 2003.

DIMETHYL GLUTARATE is considered 'not highly flammable' in contact with water.

Justification for classification or non-classification

This study has been performed according to OECD and EC guideline and according to GLP principles. Based on the molecular structure a statement rather than a full study was considered sufficient to cover this endpoint.
