In the exploration of inherent safety of a substance a key issue is the possible hazard deriving from the formation of unexpected decomposition products. Nevertheless, no standardized approach is currently available to afford the problem. The present study aimed to the development of a simplified tool for the assessment of the possible hazard arising from decomposition products, based on the coupling of experimental protocols and of the evaluation of toxic hazard indexes. The methodology is applied to the assessment of the hazard deriving from the decomposition of some intermediates currently used in industrial chemical processes.
