PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
LIQUID , WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

PHYSICAL DANGERS:
The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
Reacts violently with oxidants, reducing agents, strong acids and strong bases. The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic and corrosive fumes, including hydrogen sulfide and sulfur oxides.

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


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:


INHALATION RISK:
