  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Flammable.  Above 48°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.  Above 48°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.  Use powder, foam, carbon dioxide, water.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 AVOID ALL CONTACT! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Burning sensation. Drowsiness. Lethargy.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Dry skin. Redness. Pain. Blisters.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Blurred vision. Severe deep burns.  Wear face shield, safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Burning sensation. Headache. Dullness. Drowsiness. Nausea. Vomiting.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention. 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in inert absorbent. Wash away remainder with plenty of water. Store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment.

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. The substance may readily polymerize. Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic gases. Reacts violently with strong oxidants, acids and bases. This generates fire and explosion hazard. 

Formula: C6H10O2
Molecular mass: 114.2
Boiling point: 154°C
Melting point: -100°C
Relative density (water = 1): 0.97
Solubility in water, g/100ml: 14 (freely soluble)
Vapour pressure, kPa at 25°C: 0.63
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 3.9
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.02
Flash point: 45°C c.c.
Auto-ignition temperature: 264°C
Explosive limits, vol% in air: see Notes
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.46 (estimated) 


EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion. 

Effects of short-term exposure
Corrosive. The substance is corrosive to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Inhalation of the vapour may cause lung oedema. See Notes. Exposure could cause central nervous system depression. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness. Medical observation is indicated. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. May cause genetic damage in humans. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development. This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans. 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 1 ppm as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen).
MAK: carcinogen category: 2; skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (SH) 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms. 

NOTES
Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 61°C.
Use of alcoholic beverages enhances the harmful effect.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
