  ACUTE HAZARDS PREVENTION FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE & EXPLOSION Not combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.        In case of fire in the surroundings, use appropriate extinguishing media.   

   
  SYMPTOMS ACUTE HAZARDS FIRST AID
Inhalation Cough. Sore throat.  Avoid inhalation of dust and mist. Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness.  Protective gloves.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Redness.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Burning sensation.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Refer for medical attention . 

SPILLAGE DISPOSAL CLASSIFICATION & LABELLING
Personal protection: particulate filter respirator adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Sweep spilled substance into covered sealable containers. If appropriate, moisten first to prevent dusting. Carefully collect remainder. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations. Do NOT wash away into sewer.

PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION

Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS-TO-WHITE CRYSTALS. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride and sulfur oxides. Reacts with acids and strong oxidants. 

Formula: C8H7Cl2NaO5S
Molecular mass: 309.1
Decomposes at 245°C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.70
Solubility in water, g/100ml at 25°C: 25 (good)
Vapour pressure, Pa at 20°C: 133
Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: -0.7 (estimated) 


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
The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. The substance at very high concentrations is irritating to the gastrointestinal tract. The substance may cause effects on the liver and kidneys. 

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


Occupational exposure limits
TLV: 10 mg/m3, ppm, as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen) 

ENVIRONMENT
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
Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
Do NOT take working clothes home.
The substance is metabolized in the body into 2,4-D. See ICSC 0033.
