EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE!

  • INHALATION

  • Ventilation (not if powder), local exhaust, or breathing protection.
    Refer for medical attention.
  • SKIN

  • Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
    Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower.
  • EYES

  • Face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.
    First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
  • INGESTION

  • Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
    Rinse mouth. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
    SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
    Do NOT wash away into sewer. Sweep spilled substance into sealable containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place (extra personal protection: P3 filter respirator for toxic particles).
    Separated from food and feedstuffs, incompatible substances (see Chemical Dangers). Keep in the dark. Keep in a well-ventilated room.
    Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    ODOURLESS, COLOURLESS CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides. The substance is a weak base. Reacts with strong acids, strong oxidants, acid chlorides and acid anhydrides. Attacks iron, copper and aluminium.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV: ppm; 0.2 mg/m3 (as TWA) (ACGIH 1993-1994).


    ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
    The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.

    INHALATION RISK:
    Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.

    EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
    The substance may cause effects on the thyroid.

    EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
    The substance may have effects on the thyroid , resulting in goitrogenic effects.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 159C
    Solubility in water: good
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: -0.65
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to plants.
    N O T E S
    Temperature of decomposition unknown in literature. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.
