PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION
Physical State; Appearance WHITE CRYSTALLINE POWDER.
Physical dangers No data.
Chemical dangers Decomposes on heating. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes of hydrogen chloride (see ICSC 0163), nitrogen oxides and cyanides.
Molecular mass: 240.7
Melting point: 168°C Density: 1.26 g/cm³ Solubility in water, g/100ml at 25°C: 0.02 Vapour pressure at 20°C: negligible Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 2.24
EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure
Inhalation risk Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes malformations in human babies.
OCCUPATIONAL EXPOSURE LIMITS
The substance is toxic to aquatic organisms. This substance does enter the environment under normal use. Great care, however, should be taken to avoid any additional release, for example through inappropriate disposal.
If the substance is formulated with solvents also consult the ICSCs of these materials. Carrier solvents used in commercial formulations may change physical and toxicological properties.
