Additional information

For the evaluation of this endpoint data from sources (Dangerous Properties of Industrial Materials and the Bismuth subnitrate MSDS) were used as a weight of evidence.

According to ECHA, guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment – chapter R.7a, specific handbook data for physic-chemical properties are considered to be a reliable data source.

Data available from these sources describe bismuth subnitrate as a whitish, odourless powder.
