Sweep up, then place into a suitable container for disposal.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Acids - acid chlorides - acid anhydrides - oxidizing agents - light.
Nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. To extinguish fire, use water, dry chemical, chemical foam, or alcohol-resistant foam.
This material is probably combustible.
Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
anxiety, diaphoresis, palpitations, tremor, and numbness and tingling of the extremities may occur.
Pulmonary edema and cyanosis may occur.
Pallor, sweating and erythema have been reported following parenteral sympathomimetics. Injection site reactions from either subcutaneous intentional (skin pop) or unintentional injections may result in edema, cellulitis, and local ischemia.
MYDRIASIS has been seen following overdoses.
