Nitrogen dioxide

CAS RN:10102-44-0

Reactivities / Incompatibilities

A strong oxidizer. Reacts violently with combustible matter, chlorinated hydrocarbons, ammonia, carbon disulfide, reducing materials. Reacts with water, forming nitric acid and nitric oxide. Attacks steel in the presence of moisture.
The oxides of nitrogen react with a broad range of materials, and decomposition may occur under certain conditions. /Nitrogen oxides/
Violent reaction with cyclohexane, /fluorine/, formaldehyde, alcohols, nitrobenzene, petroleum, toluene.
Combustible material, water, chlorinated hydrocarbons, carbon disulfide, ammonia [Note: Reacts with water to form nitric acid].
Interaction of nitrates when heated with amidosulfates (sulfamates) may become explosively violent owing to liberation of dinitrogen oxide and steam.
