Chemical Identifiers

The Chemical Identifier fields include common identification numbers, the NFPA diamond U.S. Department of Transportation hazard labels, and a general description of the chemical. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
CAS Number UN/NA Number DOT Hazard Label USCG CHRIS Code
  • 7732-18-5
none data unavailable none
NIOSH Pocket Guide International Chem Safety Card
none none
NFPA 704
data unavailable
General Description
A clear, nontoxic liquid composed of hydrogen and oxygen, essential for life and the most widely used solvent. Include water in a mixture to learn how it could react with other chemicals in the mixture.

Hazards

The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
none
Air & Water Reactions
No rapid reaction with air. No rapid reaction with water.
Fire Hazard
No information available.
Health Hazard
Water itself is nontoxic and is in fact essential for life. Solutes dissolved in water may be toxic, but those interactions are covered by the reactive groups that the solute belongs to.
Reactivity Profile
Water reacts with many substances, including but not limited to alkali metals, hydrides, strong halogenating agents, and chlorosilanes. These reactions can be hazardous and may result in flammable or toxic gas production, or generation of excessive heat that may cause pressurization to occur. Another reactive hazard is heat of mixing. Mixing substances such as sulfuric acid or sodium hydroxide with water may generate significant heat. Additionally, water is a good solvent for polar molecules, so it can form aqueous solutions if it comes into contact with such molecules.
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
Potentially Incompatible Absorbents
