|ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS||PREVENTION||FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING|
|FIRE||Flammable.||NO open flames, NO sparks and NO smoking.||Use powder, AFFF, foam, carbon dioxide.|
|EXPLOSION||Above 33°C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.||Above 33°C use a closed system, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment.||In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water.|
|EXPOSURE||PREVENT GENERATION OF MISTS!|
|Inhalation||Burning sensation. Cough. Dizziness. Headache. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Sore throat. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.||Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.||Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.|
|Skin||Redness. Pain.||Protective gloves.||Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.|
|Eyes||Redness. Pain.||Wear safety spectacles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.||First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.|
|Ingestion||Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.||Rinse mouth. Give one or two glasses of water to drink.|

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its vapour.
Effects of short-term exposure
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
|PHYSICAL PROPERTIES||ENVIRONMENTAL DATA|
Boiling point: 137°C
Relative density (water = 1): 0.92
Solubility in water, g/100ml: 19
Vapour pressure, kPa at 25°C: 1.25
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.15
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20°C (air = 1): 1.04
Flash point: 33°C c.c.
Explosive limits, vol% in air: see Notes
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.5
Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 61°C.
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 is therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
