Incompatibility: Reducing agents such as powdered metals form an explosive mixture with magnesium metal powder. Avoid contact with oxidizable (flammable) organic compounds.
 SPECIAL HAZARD ALERT: The "volcano" experiment or demonstration is a popular use of ammonium dichromate. When heated to decomposition, ammonium dichromate produces nitrogen, water, and chromium(III) oxide. Chromium compounds are known carcinogens. Because of this risk, the "volcano" demonstration should be conducted under a well-ventilated hood or outdoors. This demonstration should never be done in a closed, poorly ventilated room. Strict hygiene should be observed before and after the combustion.
