|Explosive limits are unknown in literature, although the substance is combustible and has a flash point < 61°C.
The symptoms of lung oedema often do not become manifest until a few hours have passed and they are aggravated by physical effort.
Rest and medical observation are therefore essential.
Immediate administration of an appropriate inhalation therapy by a doctor, or by an authorized person, should be considered.
Check for peroxides prior to distillation; eliminate if found.
