PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION
Physical State; Appearance COLOURLESS LIQUID WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.
Chemical dangers Decomposes on burning. This produces irritating fumes. Reacts with strong oxidants. This generates fire and explosion hazard.

EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The vapour is irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. Exposure far above the OEL could cause unconsciousness.
Inhalation risk A harmful contamination of the air will be reached rather slowly on evaporation of this substance at 20°C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure The substance defats the skin, which may cause dryness or cracking. The substance may have effects on the kidneys.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
TLV: 10 ppm as TWA; A4 (not classifiable as a human carcinogen)
