Group B

  • Acrolein (inhibited)
  • Arsine
  • Butadiene
  • Ethylene oxide
  • Hydrogen
  • Manufactured gases containing more than 30% hydrogen (by volume)
  • Propylene oxide
  • Propylnitrate
Group C
  • Acetaldehyde
  • Allyl alcohol
  • n-butyraidehyde
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Crotonaldehyde
  • Cyclopropane

  • Ethylene
  • Ethylenimine
  • Ethyl mercaptan
