    $\begingroup$ Well, you're asking for a list, and we don't do lists here. And that whether demanding an answer is acceptable is debatable. $\endgroup$ – It's Over Jan 27 '16 at 10:52

    $\begingroup$ I figure that if something is going to explode, it's much more likely to do so under our oxygenated atmosphere than in vacuum. $\endgroup$ – Nicolau Saker Neto Jan 27 '16 at 12:11

One example for an everyday chemical that most probably will cause an explosion if exposed into outer space is liquid water at temperatures significantly above 300 K when hold in an inappropriate container. This phenomenon is called a BLEVE. But be aware that this is not an chemical reaction.
