Hazards and Protection.
Storage
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry place. Flammables-area.
B2 D1A E
Handling
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.
Protection
Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure.
Respirators
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.
Small spills/leaks
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.

Fire fighting
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.
Fire potential
Flammable/combustible material. May be ignited by heat, sparks or flames.
Hazards
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.
Combustion products
Irritating vapors and toxic gases, such as nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide, may be formed when involved in fire.

Exposure effects
This compound's stimulant properties appear closely related to its mao inhibitor activity.
   Ingestion
Poison by ingestion. Causes gastrointestinal tract burns.
   Inhalation
Harmful if inhaled. Causes chemical burns to the respiratory tract. May cause asthma and shortness of breath.
   Skin
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.
   Eyes
Causes eye burns. Causes redness and pain.

First aid
 
   Ingestion
Do NOT induce vomiting. Get medical aid immediately. Wash mouth out with water.
   Inhalation
Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
   Skin
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
   Eyes
Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
