Lab Safety

Common Laboratory Oxidizers

Oxidizers react with other chemicals by giving off electrons and undergoing reduction. Uncontrolled reactions of oxidizers may result in a fire or an explosion, causing severe property damage or personal injury. Use oxidizers with extreme care and caution and follow all safe handling guidelines specified in the MSDS.
