Stanford’s storage group scheme currently has acetic anhydride classified for storage as L, flammables/combustibles including solvents.
I asked my ChemTracker chemical classification team to take a new look at this to determine whether or not the best placement might be in storage group X, … incompatible with all others, therefore store segregated away from all others.
I will let you know.

How would ya’ll store acetic anhydride – flammable, corrosive, toxic, water reactive, toxic, and incompatible with acids, bases, alcohols, amines.
We’ve all been way down the rabbit hole around here without good consensus.
