3-CHLOROANILINE ICSC: 0130
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
LIGHT YELLOW LIQUID, WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR. TURNS DARK ON EXPOSURE TO AIR.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
The substance decomposes on burning producing toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides, hydrogen chloride - see ICSC0163.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV not established.
MAK: IIb (not established but data is available); skin absorption (H); sensitization of skin (Sh); (DFG 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
No indication can be given about the rate in which a harmful concentration in the air is reached on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is irritating to the eyes and the skin. The substance may cause effects on the blood, resulting in the formation of methaemoglobin. Medical observation is indicated. The effects may be delayed.

EFFECTS OF LONG-TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE:
The substance may have effects on the blood, resulting in the formation of methaemoglobin.
