Hazards and Protection.
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place. Flammables-area.
B2 D1A E
Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Do not breathe dust, vapor, mist, or gas. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Use only in a chemical fume hood.
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Always use a NIOSH or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator when necessary.
Absorb spill with inert material, (e.g., dry sand or earth), then place into a chemical waste container. Remove all sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool.
Stable under normal temperatures and pressures.
Oxidizing agents, acids.
Nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen.

Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. To extinguish fire use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or chemical foam.
Flammable/combustible material. May be ignited by heat, sparks or flames.
Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers.
Irritating vapors and toxic gases, such as nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide, may be formed when involved in fire.
This compound's stimulant properties appear closely related to its mao inhibitor activity.
Poison by ingestion. Causes gastrointestinal tract burns.
Harmful if inhaled. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract. May cause asthma and shortness of breath.
Harmful if absorbed through the skin. Causes skin burns. Exposure may cause irritation characterized by redness, dryness, and inflammation. Substance is readily absorbed through the skin.
Causes eye burns. Causes redness and pain.
Do NOT induce vomiting. Get medical aid immediately. Wash mouth out with water.
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.
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
