First-aid measures

General: In case of accident or if you feel sick, seek immediate medical care. Contact the nearest poison control center. Recommendations for physician: Treat symptomatically under medical control.
Inhalation: Remove from the affected area to breathe fresh air. If any breathing difficulties, secure and give artificial respiration or give oxygen. Keep the victim warm and at rest. See a medical doctor.
Skin Contact: Remove any contaminated clothing. Wask immediately with water and soap. Obtain medical attention.
Eye Contact: Wash immediatedly with plenty of water for 15 minutes at least. Obtain medical attention.
Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water quickly. Drink water (not if the victim is unconscious). Do not induce vomiting. Go to hospital urgently.

Fire-fighting measures

Fire and explosion hazards: Explosions may occur if the dust is dispersed as a cloud and there is a source of ignition. Clouds of dust are very sensitive to ignition by electrostatic discharge.
Suitable extinguishing media: water spray, carbon dioxide, dry chemical powder, appropriate foam.
Special exposure hazards: In case of fire, will emit toxic fumes that are irritating, containing COx and hazardous substances.
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions: Cordon off the affected area and do not allow anyone access to the area unless they have proper protective equipment.
Environmental precautions: Do not allow under any circumstances to reach waterways or sewers.
Methods for cleaning up: Collect in a bag or container for disposal. Ventilate area and wash spill site after completing the collection.

Handling and storage

Handling: Use of closed systems only. Use local exhaust during charging and any sampling from reactor vessel. Use in a closed reactor vessel. Use vacuum transfer for charging reactor vessel. Use local exhaust ventilation as an additional measure during charging of vessel. Use scrubbers for captured process gases and exhaust air treatment with chemical neutralisation followed by cryogenic trapping. Treat residues and wastes from cryogenic trapping as hazardous waste. Treat any effluent arising from manufacture and cleaning with on-site biological waste water treatment.
Approved respirator face mask must be used. Gloves must be of compatible chemical resistance and chemical safety goggles must be worn. Do not breathe dust. Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wash well after handling. Wash contaminated clothing before re-use.
Storage: Keep in closed containers, protected from moisture and sources of ignition. Use leak-proof containers. Store away from sources of ignition or incompatible materials.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Specific control parameters: Use only under Strictly Controlled Conditions.
Use properly operating chemical fume hood designed for hazardous chemicals and having an average face velocity of at least 100 feet per minute.
General protective and hygienic and precautionary measures should be adhered to in handling the chemicals. Keep away from foodstuffs, beverages and food. Instantly remove any soiled and impregnated garments. Wash hands during breaks and at the end of work. Store protective clothing separately. Avoid contact with the eyes and skin. Maintain an ergonomically appropriate working environment.
Breathing equipment: use self-contained respiratory protective device in emergency situations.
Protection of hands: check protective gloves prior to each use for their proper condition. The selection of the suitable gloves does not only depend on the material, but also on further marks of quality and varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Material of gloves: use imperious gloves.
Eye protection: use tightly sealed safety glasses, full face protection.
Body protection: use protective work clothing.

Stability and reactivity

Stable under normal conditions of use.
Conditions to avoid: carried to dryness, the residue can decompose to give toxic and irritating fumes.
Materials to avoid: oxidising agents, bases, reducing agents.
Hazardous decomposition products: carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride.

Disposal considerations

Observe state, local or national regulations for proper disposal.
Handling waste: Handle waste and contaminated packages in the same way as the substance itself.
Methods for disposal of product: collect in suitable packaging and send to licensed waste manager for disposal.
