Abstract Chemical safety information sheet. Acute toxicity: paresis of the limbs, coma, convulsions, leading rapidly to death in the absence of treatment (superacute or massive intoxication); depending on the carboxyhaemoglobinaemia level, dyspnoea when undertaking efforts, reduction of the nervous conduction velocity, visual disorders, irritability; cardiotoxic effects. Chronic toxicity: migraine, vertigo, asthenia, cardiological effects; foetotoxic effects. Exposure limits (France): TWA = 55mg/m3 (50ppm). EEC number and mandatory labelling codes: No.006-001-00-2; F+, T, R12, R61, R23, R48/23, S45, S53, 211-128-3. The complete datasheet collection on CD-ROM has been analysed under CIS 01-201.
