Physical State; Appearance
WHITE-TO-SLIGHTLY-YELLOWISH CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK: Sensitization of skin (SH); (DFG 2008). 

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

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the blood. This may result in formation of methaemoglobin. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
