EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   AVOID ALL CONTACT!   
Inhalation Burning sensation. Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.  Use ventilation, local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Skin burns. Pain. Blisters.  Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. Refer for medical attention . 
Eyes Redness. Pain. Severe deep burns.  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. 
Ingestion Abdominal cramps. Burning sensation. Headache. Weakness.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Rest. Refer for medical attention .

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS VISCOUS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
Reacts with oxidants, sulfuric acid, nitric acid and alkalis. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

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

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

Effects of short-term exposure
Corrosive. The substance is corrosive to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Corrosive on ingestion. Inhalation of the aerosol may cause lung oedema. See Notes. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Boiling point: ~320°C
Relative density (water = 1): ~0.91
Solubility in water: none
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 12.0  
 

NOTES
Technical dinonyl phenol is a mixture of various isomers and may contain up to 15% nonyl phenol.
The CAS number of 2,4-dinonyl phenol is 137-99-5.
The substance is combustible but no flash point is available in literature.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
