(49 U.S.C. 5124). Hazardous materials include explosives, compressed gases, flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives and radioactive materials. Examples: Paints, lighter fluid, fireworks, tear gases, oxygen bottles, and radio-pharmaceuticals.

Spare Lithium or removed batteries, which must be individually protected so as to prevent short circuits, fuel cells (2 Max), and e-cigarettes are permitted in carry-on baggage only. If your carry-on bag contains these items and is placed in the cargo hold, they must be removed and carried in the cabin.
