STANNOUS CHLORIDE DIHYDRATE ICSC: 0738
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
ODOURLESS COLOURLESS TO WHITE SOLID IN VARIOUS FORMS

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
Upon heating, toxic fumes are formed. The substance is a strong reducing agent and reacts violently with oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV (as tin): 2 mg/m^3 (ACGIH 1997).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.

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

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance irritates the eyes, the skin and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system and blood when ingested.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the liver following ingestion.
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Decomposes below boiling point at 652C
Melting point: 38C
Density: 2.71 g/cm^3
Solubility in water: very good (>100 g/100 ml at 20C)
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA

NOTES
The apparent melting point caused by loss of crystal water is given. Stannochlor is a trade name.
