  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.  Risk of fire and explosion on contact with oxidizing agents.  NO open flames. NO contact with oxidizing agents.    Use water spray, powder, foam, carbon dioxide.   

 AVOID ALL CONTACT! IN ALL CASES CONSULT A DOCTOR! 
  SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat. Blue lips, fingernails and skin. Confusion. Convulsions. Dizziness. Headache. Nausea. Unconsciousness.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. See Notes. 
Skin MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness.  Wear face shield 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 & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
HYGROSCOPIC WHITE CRYSTALS. TURNS DARK ON EXPOSURE TO AIR AND LIGHT. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating and on contact with acids. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including aniline, nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chloride. Reacts violently with oxidants. This generates fire and explosion hazard.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS

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

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the blood. This may result in the formation of methaemoglobin. Exposure at high levels could cause death. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed. See Notes. 

Inhalation risk
No indication can be given about the rate at which a harmful concentration of this substance in the air is reached on evaporation at 20°C. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization. The substance may have effects on the blood. This may result in the formation of methaemoglobin. 


OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 2 ppm as TWA; (skin); A3 (confirmed animal carcinogen with unknown relevance to humans); BEI issued.
MAK: 7.7 mg/m3, 2 ppm; peak limitation category: II(2); skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (SH); carcinogen category: 4; pregnancy risk group: C; BAT issued 

ENVIRONMENT
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. 

NOTES
Use of alcoholic beverages enhances the harmful effect.
Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested.
Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
