  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.        Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide. In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.   

 PREVENT DISPERSION OF DUST!  
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation See Ingestion.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes   Wear safety goggles.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

Molecular mass: 351.9
Decomposes at 270°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.63
Solubility in water: none
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 2.46  


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
Inhalation of the aerosol may cause asthmatic reactions. See Notes. 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly. 

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


Occupational exposure limits
 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. Avoid release to the environment in circumstances different to normal use. 

NOTES
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.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
