Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride and nitrogen oxides. Reacts violently with oxidants. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):.
MAK: Carcinogen category: 2; Skin absorption (H); (DFG 2008). 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes. The substance may cause effects on the red blood cells. This may result in lesions of blood cells and formation of methaemoglobin. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the spleen. Tumours have been detected in experimental animals but may not be relevant to humans. See Notes.
