TYPES OF HAZARD / EXPOSURE ACUTE HAZARDS / SYMPTOMS PREVENTION FIRST AID / FIRE FIGHTING
FIRE Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire.
NO open flames, NO sparks, and NO smoking.
Powder, water spray, foam, carbon dioxide.
EXPLOSION Above 62C explosive vapour/air mixtures may be formed.
Above 62C use a closed system, ventilation, and explosion-proof electrical equipment.
In case of fire: keep drums, etc., cool by spraying with water. Combat fire from a sheltered position.
EXPOSURE


Inhalation Wheezing. Burning sensation. Cough. Shortness of breath.
Ventilation, local exhaust, or breathing protection.
Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Refer for medical attention.
Skin
Protective gloves.
Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.
Eyes Redness. Pain.
Safety goggles or eye protection in combination with breathing protection.
First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then take to a doctor.
Ingestion (See Inhalation).
Do not eat, drink, or smoke during work. Wash hands before eating.
Do NOT induce vomiting. Refer for medical attention.
SPILLAGE DISPOSAL PACKAGING & LABELLING
Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent and remove to safe place. Chemical protection suit including self-contained breathing apparatus.

1-CHLORO-1-NITROPROPANE ICSC: 1423
IMPORTANT DATA
PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE:
COLOURLESS LIQUID, WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.

CHEMICAL DANGERS:
On combustion, forms toxic and corrosive fumes including chlorine fumes, hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides and phosgene. Reacts with oxidants and acids. Attacks plastic, rubber, insulators.

OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS:
TLV: 2 ppm as TWA; (ACGIH 2004).
MAK: IIb (not established but data is available) (DFG 2004).
ROUTES OF EXPOSURE:
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion.

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

EFFECTS OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE:
The substance is severely irritating to the eyes and the respiratory tract. Inhalation of of high concentrations of the vapour of this substance may cause lung oedema (see Notes).

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
Boiling point: 142C
Relative density (water = 1): 1.2
Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 20C: 0.8
Vapour pressure, Pa at 25C: 773.1
Relative vapour density (air = 1): 4.3
Relative density of the vapour/air-mixture at 20C (air = 1): 1.02
Flash point: 62C o.c.
ENVIRONMENTAL DATA

NOTES
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort. Rest and medical observation is therefore essential. Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor or a person authorized by him/her, should be considered.
Card has been partly updated in April 2005. See section Occupational Exposure Limits.
