  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Above 73°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed. Risk of fire and explosion on contact with metals.  NO open flames.  Above 73°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.  Use water spray, powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 AVOID ALL CONTACT!  
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Headache. Drowsiness. Unconsciousness.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Skin Dry skin. Redness. Tingling sensation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention if skin irritation occurs. 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear safety spectacles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  Rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Nausea. Headache. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. Drowsiness. Unconsciousness.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. 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. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking liquid in sealable containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
The vapour is heavier than air. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes. Reacts violently with some powdered metals. This generates explosion hazard.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes and upper respiratory tract. The substance is mildly irritating to the skin. The substance may cause effects on the liver and kidneys at high concentrations. This may result in tissue lesions. Exposure at high levels could cause lowering of consciousness. 

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxic effects upon human reproduction. 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 0.005 ppm as TWA; A2 (suspected human carcinogen).
MAK: skin absorption (H); carcinogen category: 2 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is harmful to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to ground water contamination. 

NOTES
Do NOT take working clothes home.
