The corrosivity value was determined to be 1.773. Since this value is > -0.5, the test substance is not considered to be corrosive.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The pH value of a 10% solution of yttrium trinitrate was determined to be 1.81 and the acidic reserve 0.448. The calculated value for corrosivity was 1.773 (> -0.5). Based on these data the substance was considered not to be corrosive.
