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
Insufficient data are available on the effect of this substance on human health, therefore utmost care must be taken. The substance is combustible but no flash point is available in literature. Also consult ICSC 0438 2,4-dichlorophenol and 0439 2,5-dichlorophenol.
