  • Free Radical Initiator, CAS RN and percentage (if needed)
  • All monomers and initiators indicated applying the 2% rule

Class 1 Substances:

Chemical substances which are single compounds composed of molecules with particular atoms arranged in a definite, known structure.

Class 2 Substances:

Chemical substances with a variable composition or composed of a complex combination of different molecules. Class 2 substances can be further subdivided into 3 subgroups. The first subgroup includes substances which can be represented by definite Hill ordered molecular formulae but have variable structural diagrams. The second subgroup includes substances which can be represented by definite molecular formulae but have unknown structural diagrams. The third subgroup includes representations of substances that have no definite molecular formula representation and either partial structure diagrams or no structural diagrams - often referred to as UVCBs (Unknown or Variable Composition, Complex Reaction Products and Biological Materials).
