Stability
Stable at room temperature in closed containers under normal storage and handling conditions.
Incompatibilities
Strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidizing agents, strong reducing agents.
Decomposition
Hydrogen chloride, carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, oxides of sulfur, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide.

Fire.
Fire fighting
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. Extinguishing media: Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. Do NOT get water inside containers.
