I'm currently working on Chemical SOPs.
While working on Osmium Tetroxide I've been looking at other SOP's from other Colleges/Universities and many say it is a strong oxidizer. Which makes sense but when you look at the SDS sheets and in particular the GHS for this chemical; oxidizer isn't listed as a hazard. I'm looking at it in a solution and by itself (100%) and still no oxidizer warning.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
