IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS HYGROSCOPIC LIQUID, WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms toxic gases (nitrogen oxides). Reacts with strong acids and strong oxidants.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 2 ppm as TWA; (skin); (ACGIH 2004).
MAK: 5 ppm, 24 mg/m; Peak limitation category: I(1); skin absorption (H); Pregnancy risk group: D; (DFG 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.

INHALATION RISK:
A harmful contamination of the air can be reached very quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20C.

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is corrosive to the eyes and is severely irritating to the skin and the respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the nervous system.
