DSC screening: UN Manual of Tests and Criteria – Appendix A.6.5.1

If the exothermic decomposition energy is below the threshold value of -300 J/g or if the Self-Accelerating Decomposition Temperature (SADT) for a 50 L or 50 kg container can be estimated to be higher than 75 °C, self-reactive properties can be excluded.

Measurements of the thermal stability by means of Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) can be used for this purpose:
