PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS CRYSTALLINE POWDER.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride , nitrogen oxides , sulfur oxides . Attacks metal.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.1 mg/m³ as TWA; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); (ACGIH 2008).
MAK not established.
OSHA PEL: none
NIOSH REL: Ca TWA 0.1 mg/m3 skin See Appendix A
NIOSH IDLH: Ca N.D. See: IDLH INDEX


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

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes , the skin and the respiratory tract .

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization and allergic conjunctivitis. Repeated or prolonged inhalation exposure may cause asthma. This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans.
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Melting point: 160-161°C
Solubility in water:
none
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 12
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.00
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.8
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA
Environmental Hazard placard The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be given to avoid any additional release, e.g. through inappropriate disposal.
N O T E S
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. The symptoms of asthma often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential. Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should avoid all further contact with this substance. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties. Do NOT take working clothes home.
