  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Flammable.  Above 48°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.  NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.  Above 48°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.  Use powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide.  In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. 

 AVOID ALL CONTACT!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Burning sensation. Shortness of breath. Headache. Drowsiness. Lethargy. Nausea. Vomiting.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Dry skin. Redness. Pain. Blisters.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Blurred vision. Severe deep burns.  Wear safety goggles or face shield.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Burning sensation. Headache. Dullness. Drowsiness. Nausea. Vomiting.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: self-contained breathing apparatus. Ventilation. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Wash away remainder with plenty of water. 

According to UN GHS Criteria

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
The substance can presumably form explosive peroxides. The substance may readily polymerize. Decomposes on burning. This produces toxic gases. Reacts violently with strong oxidants, acids and bases. 

Formula: C6H10O2
Molecular mass: 114.2
Boiling point: 154°C
Melting point: -100°C
Relative density (water = 1): 0.97
Solubility in water, g/100ml: 14
Vapour pressure, kPa at 25°C: 0.63
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 3.9
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.02
Flash point: 48°C o.c.
Auto-ignition temperature: see Notes
Explosive limits, vol% in air: see Notes 


EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
Corrosive. The substance is corrosive to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Inhalation of the vapour may cause lung oedema. See Notes. Exposure could cause central nervous system depression. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness. Medical observation is indicated. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. May cause genetic damage in humans. Causes serious reproductive toxicity in humans. 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 1 ppm as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen).
MAK: carcinogen category: 2.
MAK skin absorption (H); MAK sensitization of skin (SH) 

ENVIRONMENT
 

NOTES
The auto-ignition temperature is unknown in the literature.
Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 61°C.
Use of alcoholic beverages enhances the harmful effect.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
