Additional information

Justification for classification or non-classification

Ammonium octamolybdate is void of any chemical structures commonly associated with explosive properties, such as metal peroxides, peroxo-acid-anions, azides, and halogen oxides. Any rapid/violent reaction with oxygen/air can be excluded, since ammonium octamolybdate contains molybdenum in its highest oxidation state. Further, it is noted that during long-term industrial use of the substance, no observation with regard to explosivity have been made.
