  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Liquid formulations containing organic solvents may be flammable. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.    NO open flames.    Use powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.   

 STRICT HYGIENE! AVOID EXPOSURE OF ADOLESCENTS AND CHILDREN! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Pupillary constriction, muscle cramp, excessive salivation. Blurred vision. Sweating. Nausea. Vomiting. Diarrhoea. Abdominal cramps. Dizziness. Convulsions. Unconsciousness.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer immediately for medical attention. See Notes. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Further see Inhalation.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Wear protective gloves when administering first aid. Refer immediately for medical attention. 
Eyes Blurred vision.  Wear face shield or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.  Rinse with plenty of water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). 
Ingestion See Inhalation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Give a slurry of activated charcoal in water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention. See Notes.

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS-TO-YELLOW LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including phosphoric acid and phosphorus oxides. Reacts violently with strong oxidants. This generates fire and explosion hazard. Attacks iron, stainless steel, brass, some forms of plastic, rubber and coatings. 

Formula: C7H13O6P
Molecular mass: 224.2
Decomposes at 300°C
Melting point: 6.9°C (trans), 21°C (cis)
Relative density (water = 1): 1.25
Solubility in water: miscible
Vapour pressure, Pa at 21°C: 0.38
Flash point: 175°C o.c.
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.2  


EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
Cholinesterase inhibition. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system. This may result in convulsions and respiratory failure. Exposure far above the OEL could cause death. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Inhalation risk
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 0.01 mg/m3, ppm, as TWA; (skin); A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen); BEI issued.
MAK: 0.093 mg/m3, 0.01 ppm; peak limitation category: II(2); skin absorption (H) 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous to the environment. Special attention should be given to birds and bees. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal. 

NOTES
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Consult national legislation.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
