Description of key information

The material has been heated in air to attempt drying and appears to decompose with loss of the nitrate to NOx. There was no evidence of violent exotherm or combustion. Inorganic salts are not typicallly considered likely to auto-ignite on heating. The presence of nitrate does not exclude the possiblity that the substance does have oxidising properties, but in the form supplied, will not be classified as dangerously oxidising.

However, dry zirconium tetranitrate is classified as Oxidising Solid 2 and a precautionary classification has been applied to represent the water-free substance as registered, although the water-based mixture supplied will not be an oxidising agent
