Scotland Yard said there was nothing to believe that the incident was terror-related and believed it was more likely to be related to rival gang activity.
The Metropolitan Police said there had been reports of a group of males spraying people with the substance.
Ambulance and fire services are also at the scene.
Those reported injured are believed to be in a number of different locations.

"One male has been arrested on suspicion of GBH.
"Officers remain on scene. A cordon is in place. Enquiries continue."
Shocked witnesses heard one victim shouting: "I can't see, I can't see" amid the panic at the nearby train station.
Witness Zak Abdi said: "I was about to leave the station and a few guys were scattering, and there were guys on the floor in agony, with their friends all around them.

"The police locked off the whole area, it was just hectic. The police did what they can.
"It happened right outside Stratford, not far from the Westfield. I saw a group of guys running. Police couldn't stop them.
"It hit a group of men who looked like they were en route to a club.
"It didn't hit just one person, it hit a crowd of people. One guy had been hit in the face, he kept shouting 'I can't see, I can't see, I can't see'.

"Everyone was just jumping out of the way, trying to escape the whole thing. I feel traumatised, it could have been me if I'd been two minutes later."
Another witness, an assistant manager at Burger King, said one victim ran into the fast food restaurant to wash 'acid' off his face.
The 28-year-old told the BBC: "There were cuts around his eyes and he was trying to chuck water into them."
