# How to study Sodium hypochlorite stability with materials

first of all I'm not not sure to be in the right stack exchange site, but I'm a material engineering student and this year I have a project: choose a material for a container filled with Sodium hypochlorite, my university has given us CES Edupack, that contains a lot of infomartion about mechanical and physical properties, but nothing about material stability.
Since we haven't done any lecture about materials stability/decomposition, I'm here to ask if there is someone that could enlight me about how to proceed to evaluate the stability of a material.
The only thing that I came across while thinking about it is to avoid materials(polymers) that has got active groups with Sodium hypochlorite, is it a good approch?

EDIT
Maybe my question is a little dispersive so I make it clear here: my main concert is more general: how do I study the stability of sodium hypochlorite inside the container? What should I check to be sure that the container doesn't "melt"?

Sodium Hypochlorite is soluble in water and reacts with all organic solvents. Sodium hypochlorite is extensively used in house-holds as a bleaching agent and it is a chemical compound with formula $\ce{NaClO}$.
