Deviations:
no
GLP compliance:
yes (incl. certificate)
Specific details on test material used for the study:
No further details on the test substance available
Sample tested:
other: The structure of the test item was checked for oxidising functional groups
Parameter:
other: The molecule does not contain oxidising functional groups
Remarks on result:
other: The substance does not show any evidence of possessing oxidising properties.

Examining the structural formula, the following observations can be made:

- The molecule does not contain any functional groups such as organic nitro compounds, N-Halogen Compounds (N-X), Oxohalogen compounds, Interhalogen compounds

- Assessment against the two criteria quoted above indicates strongly that the molecule will not have oxidising properties as:

- The proportion of electronegative atoms in the substance is low (2 oxygen atoms out of an overall atom count of 41). Both oxygen atoms are bound to carbon and hydrogen atoms.

- The electronegative atoms are not bound to one another, nor to any other electronegative elements

On the basis of this exercise, the material should be considered as not oxidising and should not be subjected to experimental testing. The material meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.

Interpretation of results:
other: no oxidising properties
Conclusions:
The substance is concluded not to have oxidising properties. The substance meets all criteria for exemption from testing and has a structure not at all conducive with that required to exhibit oxidising tendencies.

Description of key information

The test substance was concluded from a GLP study not to have oxidising properties following a theoretical assessment of the chemical structure (Younis 2011).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:
no

Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

The test substance needs not to be classified as an oxidising substance as based on the chemical structure the substance does not contain any chemical groups indicating oxidising properties.
