Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Store in a cool, dry location in a tightly sealed container.
Handling
All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.

Small spills/leaks
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers.
Stability
No data.
Incompatibilities
Can react with reducing agents to generate heat and products that may be gaseous (causing pressurization of closed containers) Can react violently with active metals, cyanides, esters, and thiocyanates.

Fire.
Fire fighting
Flood with water. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible.
Fire potential
Oxidizing material.
Hazards
These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May explode from heat or contamination. Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.
Combustion products
Produces acrid smoke and fumes upond decomposition.
