Protection
Wear appropriate protective gloves, clothing and goggles.
Respirators
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
Small spills/leaks
Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Cover with plastic sheet to prevent spreading. Absorb or cover with dry earth, sand or other non-combustible material and transfer to containers. DO NOT GET WATER INSIDE CONTAINERS.
Stability
Stable > 2 years when stored < 40 C in closed container. Stable to hydrolysis in aqueous solutions at pH 3, 7, and 9 at 35 C and 50 C.
Incompatibilities
Incompatible with strong acids and bases, and especially

Fire.

Exposure effects
In severe poisoning, respiratory depression, mental confusion, unconsciousness, brain hemorrhages, and seizures may occur. Children may be more susceptible to seizures than adults. Headache, blurred vision, tremor, paresis, mental depression, coma, delayed neuropathies, various dystonias, weakness, muscle twitching may be noted.
   Ingestion
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal cramping have been reported and are common.
   Inhalation
Dyspnea, wheezing, rales, increased bronchial secretions, respiratory muscle weakness and respiratory failure may occur. Usual cause of death is respiratory failure.
   Skin
A possible occupational effect is contact dermatitis. Diaphoresis may be seen after exposure. Cellulitis was seen after injection of household spray.
   Eyes
See Inhalation.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Do not induce emesis. Activated charcoal: administer charcoal as a slurry (240 ml water/30 g charcoal). Usual dose: 25 to 100 g in adults/adolescents.
   Inhalation
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.
   Skin
Remove contaminated clothing and jewelry. Wash the skin, including hair and nails, vigorously; do repeated soap washings. Discard contaminated clothing.
   Eyes
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.
