The ability of a substances to undergo change, usually by combining with another substance or by breaking down. Certain conditions, such as heat and light, may cause a substance to become more reactive. Highly reactive substances may explode.
Refers to those hazardous wastes that are normally unstable and readily undergo violent chemical change but do not explode.
A description of the tendency of a substance to undergo chemical reaction with the release of energy. SARA Title III: Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986, also known as the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act.
The degree to which a substance will respond to a stimulus or interact with another substance.
(3) a substance's tendency to undergo chemical reaction either by itself or with other materials with the release of energy. Undesirable effects such as pressure buildup, temperature increase, or formation of noxious, toxic, or corrosive by-products may result from a substance's reactivity to heating, burning, direct contact with other materials, or other conditions.
ready susceptibility to chemical change
refers to how easily a substance will undergo a chemical change that can have a dangerous effect such as an explosion.
The ability of a substance to undergo a chemical reaction (such as combining with another substance). Substances with high reactivity are often quite hazardous.
tendency to participate in chemical reactions. Back
A substance that is unstable or undergoes rapid or violent chemical reaction with water or other materials. Examples are cyanide plating wastes, waste bleaches and other waste oxidizers.-SWM Rule 1200-1-11-.02(3) or 40 CFR § 261.23
ability of a substance to combine chemically with other substances. Reactivity can cause fires, explosions, container rupture, or hazardous byproducts.
The tendency for one substance to dissovle another substance.
Capable of forming chemical compounds. As a highly reactive metakaolin, MetaMaxÂ® reacts efficiently with portland cement to improve the strength and durability of concrete.
The tendency of a substance to undergo a chemical change with the release of energy. Undesirable effects (pressure build-up, temperature increase, formation of noxious, toxic or corrosive by-products) may occur because of a reaction to heating, burning, direct contact with other materials or other conditions when in use or in storage
The ability of a substance to change by combining with another substance or by breaking down. Substances can undergo changes when exposed to differing levels of heat, light, and/or pressure; or by contact with other substances. These changes cause them to react. Highly reactive substances may explode.
A description of the tendency of a substance to undergo chemical reaction with the release of energy. Undersirable effects - such as pressure buildup, temperature increase, formation of toxic, or corrosive, byproducts - may occur because of the reactivity of a substance to heating, burning, direct contact with other materials or other conditions in use or in storage.
The proclivity of a compound to chemically react with other substances or itself, resulting in the liberation of energy. Can cause the formation of toxic or corrosive materials, pressure buildup, and temperature fluctuations.
A substance's ability to undergo a chemical reaction or change that may result in dangerous side effects, such as an explosion, burning, and corrosive or toxic emissions.
The tendency for bonds between atoms or molecules to be made or broken in such a way that materials aretransformed.
A substance's susceptibility to undergoing a chemical reaction or change that may result in dangerous side effects such as: explosion, burning and corrosive or toxic emissions. The conditions that cause the reaction, such as heat, other chemicals and dropping will usually be specified as "Conditions to Avoid" on an MSDS.
The ability of a material to undergo chemical reaction wit
The degree of ability of one substance to undergo a chemical combination with another substance.
Reactivity refers to the rate at which a chemical substance tends to undergo a chemical reaction in time. In pure compounds, reactivity is regulated by the physical properties of the sample. For instance, grinding a sample to a higher specific surface area increases its reactivity.
