PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
May explode on heating above 130°C (anhydrous). Decomposes slowly under the influence of air. This produces chlorine(trihydrate). Decomposes on heating and on contact with acids. This produces toxic gases. 

Formula: C7H7ClNNaO2S
Molecular mass: 227.6
Decomposes
Density (trihydrate): 1.4 g/cm³
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 25°C: (good, trihydrate)
Flash point: 192°C c.c. (trihydrate)
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 0.84 (estimated) 


EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is severely irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful concentration of airborne particles can be reached quickly when dispersed, especially if powdered. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. Repeated or prolonged inhalation may cause asthma. 


Occupational exposure limits
 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. 

NOTES
Do NOT take working clothes home.
The symptoms of asthma 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.
Anyone who has shown symptoms of asthma due to this substance should avoid all further contact with this substance.
The recommendations on this Card also apply to Chloramine-T trihydrate (CAS 7080-50-4).
