Hazards and Protection.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container. Flammables-area.
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles. Always wear thermal protective clothing when handling refrigerated/cryogenic liquids.
When working with this chemical, wear a NIOSH-approved full face positive pressure supplied-air respirator or a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). If either of these are not available, wear a full face chemical cartridge respirator equipped with the appropriate organic vapor cartridges. However, note that full face chemical cartridge respirators provide a substantially lower protection level than do positive supplied-air or SCBA equipment.
STORAGE PRECAUTIONS: You should store this material in a refrigerator.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Keep away from stong acids, strong bases, strong oxidizing agents and strong reducing agents.
Fires involving this compound can be controlled with a dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam, or Halon extinguisher.
Vapors can travel to a source of ignition and flash back.
May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.) and fuels. Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground.
Poison by ingestion. May cause nausea and vomiting.
Toxic if inhaled.
Toxic in contact with skin.
May cause eye irritation. Lachrymator.
DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Volatile chemicals have a high risk of being aspirated into the victim's lungs during vomiting which increases the medical problems. If the victim is conscious and not convulsing, give 1 or 2 glasses of water to dilute the chemical and IMMEDIATELY call a hospital or poison control center. IMMEDIATELY transport the victim to a hospital.
IMMEDIATELY leave the contaminated area; take deep breaths of fresh air. IMMEDIATELY call a physician and be prepared to transport the victim to a hospital even if no symptoms (such as wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, or burning in the mouth, throat, or chest) develop. Provide proper respiratory protection to rescuers entering an unknown atmosphere. Whenever possible, Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) should be used.
IMMEDIATELY flood affected skin with water while removing and isolating all contaminated clothing. Gently wash all affected skin areas thoroughly with soap and water. IMMEDIATELY call a hospital or poison control center even if no symptoms (such as redness or irritation) develop. IMMEDIATELY transport the victim to a hospital for treatment after washing the affected areas.
First check the victim for contact lenses and remove if present. Flush victim's eyes with water or normal saline solution for 20 to 30 minutes while simultaneously calling a hospital or poison control center. Do not put any ointments, oils, or medication in the victim's eyes without specific instructions from a physician. IMMEDIATELY transport the victim after flushing eyes to a hospital even if no symptoms (such as redness or irritation) develop.
