PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION
Physical State; Appearance WHITE CRYSTALS WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.
Physical dangers No data.
Chemical dangers Decomposes on heating above the melting point. This produces toxic gases. Reacts with strong oxidants, nitrites, inorganic chlorides, chlorites and perchlorates. This generates fire and explosion hazard.
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion.
Effects of short-term exposure The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract.
Inhalation risk Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a nuisance-causing concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly , especially if powdered.
Effects of long-term or repeated exposure Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis.
