PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS VISCOUS LIQUID

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing irritating fumes. Reacts with strong oxidants .

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


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body through the skin

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

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:


sts: negative (31), carcinog. tests: not available (30);
Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development. related significant increase in resorptions was observed consistently in the preliminary and main studies, in the absence of maternal toxicity. Moreover, effects on male reproductive system have been observed following in utero exposure.
