|CAS #: 506-77-4||Chlorine cyanide
| UN #: 1589 (inhibited)
| EINECS #: 208-052-8
|ACUTE HAZARDS||PREVENTION||FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE & EXPLOSION||Not combustible. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.||In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media. In case of fire: keep cylinder cool by spraying with water. NO direct contact with water.|
|AVOID ALL CONTACT!|
|SYMPTOMS||ACUTE HAZARDS||FIRST AID|
|Inhalation||Sore throat. Drowsiness. Confusion. Nausea. Vomiting. Cough. Unconsciousness. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Use local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE. MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Pain.||Cold-insulating gloves. Protective clothing.||ON FROSTBITE: rinse with plenty of water, do NOT remove clothes. Refer for medical attention .|
|Eyes||ON CONTACT WITH LIQUID: FROSTBITE. Redness. Pain.||Wear face shield 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||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.|
|SPILLAGE DISPOSAL||CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING|
|Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Ventilation. NEVER direct water jet on liquid. Remove vapour cloud with fine water spray. Do NOT wash away into sewer. Personal protection: chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus.||

Routes of exposure
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|Occupational exposure limits|
|TLV: 0.3 ppm as STEL|
|The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms.|
|The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure.
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 is therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate spray, by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
Do NOT spray water on leaking cylinder (to prevent corrosion of cylinder).
Turn leaking cylinder with the leak up to prevent escape of gas in liquid state.
