TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible under specific conditions. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.

Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION


EXPOSURE
PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST! STRICT HYGIENE!
IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR!
 •INHALATION Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath.
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration if indicated. Refer for medical attention.
 •SKIN MAY BE ABSORBED!
Protective gloves. Protective clothing.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
 •EYES
Safety goggles, face shield, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
 •INGESTION Abdominal pain. Vomiting. Laboured breathing.
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Induce vomiting (ONLY IN CONSCIOUS PERSONS!). Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Sweep spilled substance into containers; if appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder, then remove to safe place. (Extra personal protection: P3 filter respirator for toxic particles).
Separated from strong oxidants, silver nitrate, food and feedstuffs .
Do not transport with food and feedstuffs.

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
WHITE , ODOURLESS CRYSTALLINE POWDER

PHYSICAL DANGERS:


CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic gases and toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides , sulfur oxides and carbon monoxide . Reacts with strong oxidants such as silver nitrate causing fire and explosion hazard.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV (as TWA): 0.3 mg/m³ A4 (ACGIH 1999).
MAK: 0.3 mg/m³; as I (1999)
MAK: class II.2 (1999)
OSHA PEL: TWA 0.3 mg/m3
NIOSH REL: TWA 0.3 mg/m3
NIOSH IDLH: 100 mg/m3 See: 86884


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

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
Exposure to substance could cause lung oedema. Medical observation is indicated.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
PHYSICAL
PROPERTIES
Decomposes below boiling point: see notes
Melting point: 198°C
Density: >1
g/cm³
Solubility in water:
none
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.66 (calculated)
