IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS-TO-BROWN CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces chlorides, nitrogen oxides and phosgene. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is mildly irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Decomposes at 247°C
Melting point: 41°C
Density: 1.18 g/cm³
Solubility in water, g/100ml: 0.009 (very poor)
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.4  
This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to aquatic organisms. 

NOTES
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials.
