EXPOSURE
AVOID ALL CONTACT!

 •INHALATION
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN Dry skin. Redness.
Protective gloves.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Dizziness. Drowsiness.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Give plenty of water to drink. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Wash away remainder with plenty of water. Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours.
Separated from strong oxidants.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
ODOURLESS YELLOWISH BROWN VISCOUS LIQUID.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. Reacts with strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh);
Carcinogen category: 3A;
(DFG 2004).


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

INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the skin . Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization.
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Melting point: 8-12C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.17
Solubility in water: see Notes
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 11.7
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): see Notes
Flash point: 79C o.c.
ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

N O T E S
Boiling point, solubility in water, vapour pressure, relative density of the vapour/air mixture, and auto-ignition temperature are unknown in the literature. Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found. Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See sections Occupational Exposure Limits, EU classification, Emergency Response.
