|PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE: |
COLOURLESS CRYSTALS OR WHITE POWDER , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.
The substance decomposes on heating producing nitrogen oxides (see ICSC 0067, ICSC 0930) and hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). Reacts with strong bases . Attacks mild steel.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 10 mg/m3 as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); (ACGIH 2004).
OSHA PEL†: TWA 15 mg/m3 (total) TWA 5 mg/m3 (resp)
NIOSH REL: See Appendix D
NIOSH IDLH: N.D. See: IDLH INDEX
|ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: |
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion.
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered.
EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes , the skin and the respiratory tract .
EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the liver.
|Decomposes below melting point at 218-219°C |
Solubility in water: poor
|Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.9 |
| The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment; special attention should be given to soil organisms, 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. |
