Abstract  

Alkali metal alkoxides can be formed by the direct reaction of alkali metals with the corresponding alcohol. Under certain conditions, however, these reactions become dangerous. One of the reasons for the instability build-up in the reaction mixture is related to the electrochemical behaviour of the heterogeneous medium. Another reason is the instability introduced by the simultaneous presence of oxygen and alkali metal atoms in the reagents. Accelerating rate calorimetry is an excellent way to determine safe working conditions for the handling of such compounds. The hazards that are encountered are discussed by means of some examples.
