Subject: [DCHAS-L] Testing company for oxidizer determination

We have a colleague with the following question.  Can anyone point him in the direction of a testing lab or other expert that can make the determination?

You can reply directly to me and I will collate the responses and post them to the list in a single post.

Where can I send a sample of liquid to have a determination done as to classification for shipping/storage/handling purposes as to whether it is an oxidizer?

It is essentially a suspension of zinc oxide, with some sodium nitrate.
