IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS VISCOUS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes at 200°C. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen bromide and phosphorus oxides. Reacts with acids and bases. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans.
