Abstract Chemical safety information sheet. Inhalation at concentrations of 700ppm or more will cause serious poisoning in a short time. It is irritating to the eyes, skin and mucous membranes. Higher concentrations will block the sense of smell and can damage the lungs with eventual pulmonary oedema. At very high concentrations it will affect the central nervous system. Exposure limits: Administrative standard = 15mg/m3; ceiling value = 15mg/m3 (Norway, 1984).
