TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames. NO contact with nitric acid.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION Above 85°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  Above 85°C use a closed system and ventilation.   
 
EXPOSURE     IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Confusion. Convulsions. Dizziness. Headache. Nausea. Unconciousness.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Pain. See Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain.  Wear face shield.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Weakness. See Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention .

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. TURNS BROWN ON EXPOSURE TO LIGHT AND AIR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
On combustion, forms toxic gases including nitrogen oxides. Reacts with oxidants. Reacts violently with concentrated nitric acid. This generates fire and explosion hazard. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation 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 is irritating to the eyes and skin. 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
