Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces irritating fumes. Reacts with strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

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

Effects of short-term exposure
 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development.
