EXPOSURE
STRICT HYGIENE!

Inhalation
Local exhaust or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest.
Skin
Protective gloves.

IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
YELLOW CRYSTALS.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 0.1 mg/m as TWA; (ACGIH 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly especially if powdered.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance may cause effects on the blood, resulting in haemorrhage. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Decomposes below boiling point
Melting point: 108-110C
Density: 1.06 g/cm
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 25C: none
Vapour pressure, Pa at 25C: negligible
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
The substance is very toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance may be hazardous in the environment; special attention should be given to birds and mammals. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be given to avoid any additional release, e.g. through inappropriate disposal.
NOTES
Temperature of decomposition unknown in literature. Depending on the degree of exposure, periodic medical examination is suggested. The symptoms of bleeding do not become manifest until a few hours or even a few days have passed. Specific treatment is necessary in case of poisoning with this substance; the appropriate means with instructions must be available.
