Notes.

  1. Except where the context otherwise requires, the headings of this Chapter apply only to:
    1. Separate chemical elements and separate chemically defined compounds, whether or not containing impurities;
    2. The products mentioned in (a) above dissolved in water;
    3. The products mentioned in (a) above dissolved in other solvents provided that the solution constitutes a normal and necessary method of putting up these products adopted solely for reasons of safety or for transport and that the solvent does not render the product particularly suitable for specific use rather than for general use;
    4. The products mentioned in (a), (b) or (c) above with an added stabiliser (including an anti-caking agent) necessary for their preservation or transport;
    5. The products mentioned in (a), (b), (c) or (d) above with an added anti-dusting agent or a colouring substance added to facilitate their identification or for safety reasons, provided that the additions do not render the product particularly suitable for specific use rather than for general use.

       

  2. In addition to dithionites and sulphoxylates, stabilised with organic substances (2831), carbonates and peroxocarbonates of inorganic bases (2836), cyanides, cyanide oxides and complex cyanides of inorganic bases (2837), fulminates, cyanates and thiocyanates, of inorganic bases (2842), organic products included in 2843 to 2846 and 2852 and carbides (2849), only the following compounds of carbon are to be classified in this Chapter:
