Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep containers tightly closed.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Use only in a chemical fume hood. Do not breathe dust.
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves and clothing to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA's 29 CFR 1910.134 and ANSI Z88.2 requirements or European Standard EN 149 must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator's use.
Clean up spills immediately, using the appropriate protective equipment. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Absorb spill using an absorbent, non-combustible material such as earth, sand, or vermiculite. Provide ventilation.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures. Dusts may form an explosion hazard. Boiling with Potassium hydroxide yields a product that, after drying, explodes at 205 C or when mixed with combustible materials.
Alkalies, potassium hydroxide.
Hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides, ammonia and/or derivatives, nitrogen, chloride fumes.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Toxic gases and vapors (such as chlorine) may be released when chlorine-containing soluble platinum salts decompose.

Repeated exposure may cause sensitization dermatitis. Chronic inhalation may cause pulmonary emphysema. Chronic inhalation may cause pulmonary fibrosis.
Harmful if swallowed. May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
May be fatal if inhaled. May cause pulmonary fibrosis and permanent damage. May cause respiratory sensitization. Symptoms include asthma, sneezing, coughing, bronchitis, tightness of chest, and irritation of nose and throat.
May cause irritation and dermatitis. May cause sensitization by skin contact.
Causes eye irritation. Lachrymator. Causes redness of eyes and swelling of eyelids.
Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT induce vomiting. If conscious and alert, rinse mouth and drink 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water.
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Do not use mouth-to-mouth respiration if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device.
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
