Properties and Observations

Usually granules. Wholly or partly soluble in water. These mixtures may be subject to self-sustaining decomposition if heated. The temperature in such a reaction can reach 500°C. Decomposition, once initiated, may spread throughout the remainder, producing gases which are toxic. None of these mixtures is subject to the explosion hazard. Transport of AMMONIUM NITRATE liable to self-heating sufficient to initiate decomposition is prohibited.
