EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes and skin. Exposure could cause lowering of consciousness. 

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation 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. 


Occupational exposure limits
MAK: skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (SH); carcinogen category: 3A 

ENVIRONMENT
 

NOTES
Boiling point, solubility in water, vapour pressure, relative density of the vapour/air mixture, and auto-ignition temperature are unknown in the literature.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
