IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
YELLOW FLAKES. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces nitrogen oxides. Reacts vigorously with oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK: Carcinogen category: 3B; (DFG 2006). 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body 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
