The mere presence of melanj and samine in the Republic of Azerbaijan present a danger to the people who work and live near the storage depots. After a preliminary evaluation of the storage depots in October 2003 it was determined that the situation was in need of rapid response. The toxicity of melanj is such that it easily corrodes metals and can begin the harm humans upon coming into contact with mucous membranes. Likewise, samine and isopropyl nitrate pose serious threats to humans as well as the environment.
