PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
RED TO YELLOW OILY LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. TURNS BROWN ON EXPOSURE TO AIR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides. Reacts with acids, acid anhydrides, acid chlorides, chloroformates and strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.1 ppm (as TWA) (A3) (skin) (ACGIH 1998).
OSHA PEL: TWA 0.5 mg/m3 skin
NIOSH REL: Ca 0.5 mg/m3 skin See Appendix A
NIOSH IDLH: Ca 50 mg/m3 See: 90040


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour, through the skin 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:
The substance may cause effects on the blood , resulting in formation of methaemoglobin. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. See Notes.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans.

ENVIRONMENTAL
DATA

The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment.

N O T E S

Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available. Also consult ICSC #0971 p-Anisidine.
