FIRE Combustible. 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!   
Inhalation Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Dizziness. Headache. Confusion. Convulsions. Nausea. Unconciousness.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin   Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes   Wear safety goggles 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.

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on burning. This produces toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides. Reacts with strong oxidants. 

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 when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance may cause effects on the blood. This may result in formation of methaemoglobin. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Boiling point: 343°C
Melting point: 132-135°C
Solubility in water: none
Vapour pressure at 25°C: negligible
Flash point: 190°C o.c.
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 3.82  
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is indicated.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
