    PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
    COLOURLESS TO YELLOW CRYSTALS.

    PHYSICAL DANGERS:


    CHEMICAL DANGERS:
    Upon heating, toxic fumes are formed.

    OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS (OELs):
    TLV not established.


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

    INHALATION RISK:

    This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans.
    PHYSICAL
    PROPERTIES
    Melting point: 168C
    Solubility in water: none
    Vapour pressure, Pa at 20C: <10
    Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 6.04
    ENVIRONMENTAL
    DATA
    This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to the total environment. In the food chain important to humans, bioaccumulation takes place, specifically in oils and fats.
    NOTES
    Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated. Data are insufficiently available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. Do NOT take working clothes home.
