PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS TO YELLOW FUMING OILY LIQUID , WITH PUNGENT ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating, on contact with acids and water, producing toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride. Reacts violently with strong oxidants , amines and light metals causing fire and explosion hazard. On contact with air it emits hydrogen chloride (see ICSC0163). Attacks plastic. elected and modified from 'metals (especially iron), alkali and earth alkali metals, bases, organic compounds,' at update 2007. elected and modified at update 2007. elected and modified at update 2007.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.1 ppm as STEL (Ceiling value), (skin), A2 (suspected human carcinogen); (ACGIH 2008).
MAK: skin absorption (H);
Carcinogen category: 2;
(DFG 2008).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and through the skin and by ingestion. m by inhalation of its vapour at update 2007 because of the kin notation in ACGIH

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the skin and the respiratory tract, and is severely irritating to the eyes. If swallowed the substance may cause vomiting, and could result in aspiration pneumonitis. .7mm2/s: Re-selected at update 2007, ==> GHS cat 2?;

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the lungs , liver , kidneys and thyroid . This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans. o human data. Repeated inh (30-100 mg/m3/2h/d for 3M ==> 0.01-0.03 mg/L/6h) caused damage to the lung, changes to the blood and damage to further organs (parenchymatous organs, CNS) nogenicity: IARC Group 2A(lung, skin, leukemia, lymphoma): GHS cat 1B;

DATA

N O T E S
Combustible vapour/air mixtures difficult to ignite, may be developed under certain conditions. The occupational exposure limit value should not be exceeded during any part of the working exposure. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. Refer for medical attention if breathing difficulties and/or fever develop. o TLV ceiling at update 2007.; 24418000
