EXPOSURE


  • INHALATION

  • Local exhaust.
    Fresh air, rest.
  • SKIN
  • Redness.
    Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES

  • Safety spectacles.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Abdominal pain. Drowsiness. Nausea.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Give plenty of water to drink.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes including sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and sodium oxide. The substance is a weak base.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the skin.


    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 90-102C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.1
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 5.9
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    N O T E S
    Health effects of exposure to the substance have been investigated, but none has been found. Imuthiol is a trade name.
