Description of key information

Hazardous reactions:
a) Thermal decomposition: decomposition when heated.
b) Decompositon products: combustion- and pyrolysis-gases of chlorine containing compounds contain hydrogen chloride, chlorine, phosgene; dioxines

and other poisonous or corrosive substances in different concentrations. At the decomposition by heat, water or watervapour hydrogen cyanide and nitrous gases can also be released.
c) Hazardous chemical reactions: Tends to polymerize spontaneously. This reaction will be catalysed by traces of metal, metal salts or acids. It may proceed

explosively. The substance can react dangerously with water, alcohols, acetylene, benzene and chlorine.
