EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!

  • INHALATION
  • Burning sensation. Cough. Sore throat (see Ingestion).
    Local exhaust or breathing protection.
    Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN
  • (see Ingestion).
    Protective gloves.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES
  • Redness. Pain.
    Safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION
  • Blue lips or fingernails. Blue skin. Dizziness. Headache. Laboured breathing.
    Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
    Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Sweep spilled substance into containers. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment (extra personal protection: self-contained breathing apparatus).
    Separated from strong oxidants, strong bases. Cool. Dry.

    UN Hazard Class: 4.1

    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating or on burning producing toxic fumes (nitrogen oxides). Reacts with strong oxidants.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly by dispersing.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance irritates the eyes and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the blood: methemoglobinemia , resulting in cyanosis, brain and kidney failure. See Notes.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The substance may have effects on the blood: methemoglobinemia (see Short-Term Exposure.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point at 0.4 kPa: 250C
    Melting point: 132-135C
    Solubility in water: none
    Vapour pressure, Pa at 25C: negligible
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 7.4
    Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1.00
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.82
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to fish and aquatic life. In the food chain important to humans, bioaccumulation takes place, specifically in . It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment.
    NOTES
    Density = 1.15. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available. Data are insufficiently available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
