The purpose of the work was to develop and use an experimental procedure to determine chemical reactivity hazards of specific chemicals and their binary mixtures of particular concern to the U.S. Coast Guard. The data generated are to be used in formulating regulations for bulk shipment of chemicals by water transport. In the research, 209 chemicals were separated into 60 groups according to chemical structure. A representative working chemical was chosen from each group and subsequent experimental work was performed with only the working chemicals. Thermal stability of each working chemical was determined by differential thermal analysis. Impact and spark sensitivities were also determined. Following the accumulation of data on the working chemicals, an experimental procedure was developed to determine the chemical reactivity hazards from binary mixtures of the working chemicals.
