TYPES OF
HAZARD /
EXPOSURE
ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS      PREVENTION      FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible under specific conditions. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  NO open flames.  Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. 
EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!  IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
Inhalation   Use ventilation (not if powder).  Refer for medical attention. 
Skin      
Eyes   Wear safety spectacles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion See Notes.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rest. Refer for medical attention .

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic and irritating fumes including hydrogen chloride and nitrogen oxides. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly on spraying or when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

Effects of short-term exposure
 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 100-101°C
