Description of key information

Bismuth subsalicylate is not oxidising.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Oxidising properties:

Additional information

A study was conducted to determine the oxidising properties of the test item, bismuth subsalicylate, according to the European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008, Part A: Methods for the determination of physico-chemical properties. A. 17. Oxidizing properties of solids.

Due to the fact that the mixture of the test item with cellulose burned slower compared to the reference mixture, or the flame extinguished before the pre-burning phase was finished, it was concluded that the test item has no oxidising properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

The substance has been shown to have no oxidising properties therefore it is not classified.
