Boiling point: 327-371°C Melting point: 120°C Density: 1.7 g/cm³ Solubility in water: none Vapour pressure, Pa at 20°C: <0.1 Relative vapour density (air = 1): 10.4 Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 8.73/9.13
EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of fume and through the skin.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes and skin.
Inhalation risk Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure May cause chloracne. The substance may have effects on the liver. This may result in liver impairment.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 0.5 mg/m3, as TWA; (skin)
Bioaccumulation of this chemical may occur along the food chain, for example in fish. It is strongly advised not to let the chemical enter into the environment because it is persistent. The substance may cause long-term effects in the aquatic environment.
