not required

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACH Regulation (Annex 7.11, column II), the study on explosiveness does not need to be done if the substance does not contain chemical groups indicating explosive properties. Acetone does not contain any functional groups indicating explosive properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Acetone is a highly flammable liquid and there is a hazard of explosion as vapour in mixture with air, but there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule. Therefore according to Annex VII 7.11. Column 2, a study on explosiveness does not need to be conducted.
