Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container.
Unstable to light and air; fading and degradation upon brief exposure to light, esp @ high humidity ethanol solution are stable for more than yr if kept in dark and cold fairly stable in cereal products up to 35% survives autoclaving for up to 3 hr.
Strong oxidizing agents.
Hydrogen chloride, carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, carbon dioxide.
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. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
This material is probably combustible.
When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors, and sewers explosion hazards.
Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
I-2B, N-2, CP65
