PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS TO BROWN SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS or LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on burning, producing toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride and nitrogen oxides. Reacts violently with chloroformic acid esters, strong oxidants, acid anhydrides, acids, acid chlorides.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: skin absorption (H);
Carcinogen category: 1; Germ cell mutagen group: 3A
(DFG 2006).


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body through the skin, by inhalation and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
May cause mechanical irritation to the skin, the respiratory tract. and the eyes (as a solid). The substance may cause effects on the bladder , resulting in hemorrhagic inflammation. The substance may cause effects on the blood , resulting in the formation of methaemoglobin. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. See Notes. of human intoxications metHb is seen.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
This substance is probably carcinogenic to humans. May cause heritable genetic damage to human germ cells. K 3A and IARC
