Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
Handling
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.
Protection
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Respirators
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Small spills/leaks
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers.
Stability
No data.
Incompatibilities
Mixtures with acetic acid or acetic anhydride can explode if not kept cold.

Fire.
Fire fighting
Flood with water. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible.
Fire potential
These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire.
Hazards
These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May explode from heat or contamination. Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Combustion products
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Health.
Exposure limit(s)
TLV (as TWA): ppm; 5 (dust) or 1 (fume) mg/m3; as STEL: 3 mg/m3 (fume) (ACGIH 1994-1995). MAK: ppm; 0.5 mg/m3 (1994).
Exposure effects
   Ingestion
Ingestion may cause severe injury, burns, or death.
   Inhalation
Vapors may cause injury, burns, death.
   Skin
Contact may result in injury, burns and death.
   Eyes
See Skin.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Induced vomiting is not recommended because of the potential for corrosive gastrointestinal and upper airway injury. Immediately dilute with 4 to 8 ounces (120 to 240 ml) of milk or water (not to exceed 4 ounces/120 ml in a child).
   Inhalation
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing and wash exposed area thoroughly with soap and water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.
   Eyes
In case of contact with substance, immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
