There is considerable interest in prediction of reactive hazards based on chemical structure. Calorimetric measurements to determine reactivity can be resource consuming, so computational methods to predict reactivity hazards present an attractive option. This paper reviews some of the commonly employed theoretical hazard evaluation techniques, including(More)
The recent publication by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) concerning its findings on the Concept Sciences Inc. (CSI) incident involving hydroxylamine (HA) has raised issues with regard to safe production of HA. This CSI incident was followed by another incident that destroyed the Nissin Chemical HA plant in Japan, and today BASF is the sole commercial(More)
The evaluation of reactive hazards is necessary for safe operations in the chemical process industries. An integral aspect of reactive hazard testing is the screening of chemicals to focus experimental efforts on the more hazardous chemicals. Screening is often performed using a Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC) or the Reactive System Screening Tool(More)
