    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:
    The vapour is heavier than air.

    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    On combustion, forms irritating fumes.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


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

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

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


    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Boiling point at 0.7 kPa: 236C
    Melting point: 28C
    Relative density (water = 1): 1.2
    Solubility in water, g/100 ml: miscible
    Relative vapour density (air = 1): 9.4
    Flash point: 232C
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA

    N O T E S
    Use of alcohol foam, foam and water as extinguishing agent may cause frothing. Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken.
