Hazards and Protection.
Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container. Keep under a nitrogen blanket. Refrigerator (approx 4 C). Keep away from acids.
Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Do not ingest or inhale. Use only in a chemical fume hood.
Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.

Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Flush spill area with water.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Moist air or water, heat, strong acids
Nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, oxides of sulfur, carbon dioxide, hydrogen fluoride.
Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Decomposes at high temperatures, resulting in toxic and corrosive products. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
Non-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes.
Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Causes gastrointestinal tract burns.
Irritation may lead to chemical pneumonitis and pulmonary edema. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract.
Causes skin burns.
Causes eye burns. May cause irreversible eye injury.
Do NOT induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Get medical aid immediately.
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
