Description of key information

Waiving: study technically not feasible due to the high potential to react with water and moisture of soil

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No terrestrial toxicity data are available for sodium hydride due to the potential for the compound to react with water. Sodium hydride is a strong base which reacts nearly spontaneously when exposed to water forming sodium hydroxide and hydrogen gas (flammable).
