Description of key information

Traces of nitrogen oxides can promote decomposition of alkyl nitrates. This can lead to container rupture on heating or pressure build up on prolonged storage at ambient temperatures. Transition metal oxides or their chelates also greatly accelerate the decomposition rate.

Avoid to stock the 2-EHN in an oxidative environment, too acid, too alkaline.
