COLOURLESS CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen bromide and nitrogen oxides (see ICSC 0282). The solution in water is a weak base. Reacts with acids and strong oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol 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
The substance may have effects on the blood. This may result in formation of methaemoglobin.
