TYPES OF HAZARD/ EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS/ SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID/
FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Highly flammable.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Water spray, foam, powder, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Vapour/air mixtures are explosive. Heating will cause rise in pressure with risk of bursting.
Closed system, ventilation, explosion-proof electrical equipment and lighting. Do NOT use compressed air for filling, discharging, or handling. Use non-sparking handtools.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.
EXPOSURE
PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!

 •INHALATION
Ventilation.
Fresh air, rest. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell
 •SKIN Redness.
Protective gloves.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention if skin irritation occurs.
 •EYES Redness.
Safety spectacles .
Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible).
 •INGESTION Nausea. Vomiting. Aspiration hazard!
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.
Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Seek medical attention if you feel unwell
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL STORAGE PACKAGING & LABELLING
Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Remove all ignition sources. Ventilation. Collect leaking liquid in covered containers. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Do NOT wash away into sewer.
Separated from strong oxidants. Fireproof. Store in an area without drain or sewer access. Ventilation along the floor.

UN Hazard Class: 3
UN Packing Group: II

PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID

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

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
Reacts violently with strong oxidants. Can form peroxides which may initiate a polymerisation reaction.

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


ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The vapour is irritating to the eyes and the skin. If swallowed the substance may cause vomiting, and could result in aspiration pneumonitis. The effects may be delayed.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:

DATA

N O T E S
The commercial mixture of 1,3-pentadiene consists of 80% of the trans-isomer (CAS 2004-70-8) and 20% of the cis-isomer (CAS 1574-41-0). CAS 504-60-9 is for unspecified or mixed isomer. Do NOT take working clothes home.
