EXPLOSION      
 
EXPOSURE   AVOID ALL CONTACT!   
Inhalation Burning sensation. Cough. Laboured breathing. Shortness of breath. Sore throat. Symptoms may be delayed. See Notes.  Use local exhaust or breathing protection.  Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention. 
Skin Redness. Pain. Skin burns.  Protective gloves. Protective clothing.  Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse skin with plenty of water or shower. 
Eyes Pain. Redness. Severe deep burns.  Wear safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection. Wear face shield.  First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention. 
Ingestion Abdominal pain. Burning sensation. Shock or collapse.  Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work.  Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention .

IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
COLOURLESS LIQUID. 

Physical dangers
No data. 

Chemical dangers
Decomposes on contact with hot surfaces or flames. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes including hydrogen chloride and phosgene. Decomposes on contact with bases. This produces flammable/explosive gas (hydrogen - see ICSC 0001). Reacts violently with oxidants. Reacts violently with water. This produces hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163). Attacks many metals in the presence of water. 

Occupational exposure limits
TLV (NOT-ESTABLISHED):. 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation. 

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

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

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
Repeated or prolonged inhalation may cause effects on the lungs. The substance may have effects on the lungs. This may result in chronic bronchitis. See Notes. 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Solubility in water: reaction
Vapour pressure, kPa at 20°C: 18.3
Flash point: -9°C 
 

NOTES
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 is therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
Toxicology of this substance is based on Hydrogen chloride See ICSC0163.
