Does anyone have an example of a container failure of a pyrophoric substance in storage, or even broader, ignition of a stored pyrophore? I cannot find anything in my stack of stuff apart from finely divided metallic hydrides that have self heated/ignited after >20+ years of storage of the former metal.
"In storage" is key here.
