PHYSICAL & CHEMICAL INFORMATION
Physical State; Appearance COMPRESSED LIQUEFIED GAS WITH CHARACTERISTIC ODOUR.
Chemical dangers Decomposes on contact with hot surfaces or flames. This produces toxic and corrosive fumes.
Molecular mass: 102.03
Boiling point: -26°C Melting point: -101°C Solubility in water: none Vapour pressure, kPa at 25°C: 630 Relative vapour density (air = 1): 3.5 Octanol/water partition coefficient as log Pow: 1.06
EXPOSURE & HEALTH EFFECTS
Routes of exposure The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation.
Effects of short-term exposure Rapid evaporation of the liquid may cause frostbite. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system and cardiovascular system. This may result in cardiac disorders.
Inhalation risk A harmful concentration of this gas in the air will be reached very quickly on loss of containment.
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.
Do NOT use in the vicinity of a fire or a hot surface, or during welding. Turn leaking cylinder with the leak up to prevent escape of gas in liquid state.
