|PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION|
Physical State; Appearance
Formula: C6H10O3 / C2H3OCH2OCH2C2H3O
|EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS|
Routes of exposure
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|Occupational exposure limits|
TLV: 0.01 ppm as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen).
MAK: skin absorption (H); carcinogen category: 3B
|The auto-ignition temperature is unknown in the literature.
Explosive limits are unknown in the literature.
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.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
The odour warning when the exposure limit value is exceeded is insufficient.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
