Conditions of Instability: Incompatible materials
Incompatibility with various substances: Reactive with organic materials, acids, moisture.
Corrosivity: Not available.
Special Remarks on Reactivity:
Absorbs CO2 from air. Reacts with fluorine to evolve much heat and some light. Reacts with water. Addition of water to Quicklime has generated temperatures as high as 800 C. Some reports describe the reaction as violent. In water, calcium oxide forms calcium hydroxide generating a large quantity of heat. Ignition of sulfur, gunpowder, wood, and straw by heat of Quicklime-water reaction has been reported. Liquid hydrofluoric acid and calcium oxide react very violently. Calcium reacts with phosphorous pentoxide extremely violently when initiated by local heating. It becomes incandescent when heated to near its melting point (2500 C). Quick Lime when stored against brick wall is known to push off the wall.
Polymerization:
Will not occur.
