Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.
Strong oxidizing agents.
Oxides of carbon and toxic 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. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire.
Irritation of eyes, respiratory or GI tracts. CNS effects like headache, dizziness and nausea. Chronic exposure can cause defatting or dermatitis of skin.
