Abstract This publication contains extracts of information from 2760 data sheets on dangerous chemical reactions published by INRS between 1972 and 1980. More than 4000 chemical compounds and mixtures are included. Reactions are considered dangerous if they are exothermic and result in a sudden deflagration, fire, explosion or projection of materials when subject to the addition of another substance, or to heat, shaking or shock. Reactions that release a toxic gas, evidently dangerous if inhaled, are not mentioned unless they produce an effect listed above. The book is aimed at chemists and others working with chemical products in laboratories, manufacturing plants, storage areas etc.
