PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
DARK GREEN VISCOUS LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms toxic gases.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK not established.


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