Hazards and Protection.
Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.
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.
Wear appropriate chemical protective clothing.
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
Small spills/leaks
Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Do not use water. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Keep material dry. Cover all suspected material with dry sand or earth to prevent ignition until material can be permanently disposed of. Land spill: Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water.
No data.
Can react vigorously with oxidizing materials Incompatible with oxidizers such as atmospheric oxygen Incompatible with acids, particularly oxidizing acids.

Fire fighting
Do not use water. Use graphite, soda ash, powdered sodium chloride, or suitable dry powder. When fire is out, cover all suspected material with dry sand or earth to prevent re-ignition until material can be permanently disposed of. Carbon dioxide may be ineffective.
Produce flammable and toxic gases on contact with water. May ignite on contact with water or moist air. Some react vigorously or explosively on contact with water. May be ignited by heat, sparks or flames. May re-ignite after fire is extinguished. Some are transported in highly flammable liquids. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard.

Exposure effects
See inhalation.
Highly toxic: contact with water produces toxic gas, may be fatal if inhaled. Inhalation or contact with vapors, substance, or decomposition products may cause severe injury or death. May produce corrosive solutions on contact with water. Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control may cause pollution.
