Hazards and Protection.
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.
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 self-contained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. If the material is contacted, immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area). Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Prevent entry into waterways, sewers, basements or confined areas. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers. DO NOT GET WATER INSIDE CONTAINERS.
Appear to be stable in acid solution, but are susceptible to decomposition by UV radiation in alkaline solution.
Reacts with oxidizing materials and combustibles If mixed with reducing agents, including hydrides, sulfides and nitrides, they may begin a vigorous reaction that culminates in a detonation Reacts as weak organic acids Incompatible with strong reducing substances such as hydrides, nitrides, alkali metals, and sulfides.
When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of oxides of nitrogen.
Fire Extinguishing Agents: Water, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam
Does not ignite readily.
When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors, and sewers explosion hazards.
Can detonate or explode when heated under confinement.
Blood pressure, pulse, respiratory rate, and temperature may all be elevated after exposure. In severe poisoning, restlessness, seizures, and coma may occur. Animal studies show developmental malformations involving the neurologic, ophthalmic, urologic, and skeletal systems of offsprings.
Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain may be prominent.
Dyspnea, tachypnea, cyanosis, and pulmonary edema may occur.
Yellow staining of skin occurs following contact with nitrophenols. Diaphoresis is common.
Cataracts, secondary glaucoma, symblepharon, paresis of accomodation, and nystagmus have been reported.
Seek medical assistance.
Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method 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. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
Wash affected areas of skin and hair vigorously with soap and water. Dermal exposure is usually accompanied by a yellowish discoloration which does not have to be removed completely to prevent absorption.
Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of tepid water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation, pain, swelling, lacrimation, or photophobia persist, the patient should be seen in a health care facility.
