IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
ODOURLESS COLOURLESS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on burning. This produces irritating fumes. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
