In reviewing the document hazardous materials classification submitted to NFPA 1 for the development of NFPA 400, there is information related to the history of maximum allowable quantity of various hazardous classifications.

It would be interesting to me to understand the development of the detached building thresholds. The detached building threshold quantities which are of most interests are those for pyrophoric gases (2,000 CF), unstable reactive class 3 (2,000 CF).
