First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If vapour of this material is inhaled, remove from exposure.
Administer oxygen if there is difficulty in breathing. Give
artifical respiration if person is not breathing and
continue until normal breathing is established. Obtain
medical advice without delay.
Emergency measure - Eyes: In case of eye contact, immediately irrigate with plenty of
water for 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention without
delay.
Emergency measure - Skin: In case of skin contact, remove contaminated clothing
without delay. Wear impervious gloves. Cleanse skin
thoroughly with soap and water. Do not omit to clean hair
or under fingernails if contaminated. Do not reuse clothing
without laundering.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: If quantities greater than 15 cc are swallowed induce
vomiting immediately as directed by mediical personnel.Do
NOT induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical
personnel.

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use water spray, alcohol foam, carbon dioxide or dry
chemical to extinguish fires. Water stream may be
ineffective. Use water to keep containers cool.

Product arising from burning: Based on scientific judgment, thermal decomposition or
combustion may produce carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide,
hydrogen sulphide, and/or oxides of phosphorus and sulphur.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear self-contained positive pressure breathing apparatus
and full firefighting protective clothing.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Remove sources of ignition. Where exposure level is not
known wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained
respirator. Where exposure level is known, wear approved
respirator suitable for level of exposure. To prevent skin
contact wear skin protection, such as impervious gloves,
apron, workpants, long-sleeve workshirt or disposable
overalls. In addition, wear impervious boots. To prevent
eye contact, wear eye protection such as chemical
splash-proof goggles or face shield. Cover spills with some
inert material; sweep up and place in a waste disposal
container. Flush area with water.

Handling and storage

Handling: Utilise in a closed system process where feasible. Where
this material is not used in a closed system, good enclosure
and local exhaust ventilation should be provided to control
exposure. Practice good hygiene. Prevent eye and skin
contact. To prevent eye and skin contact wear skin
protection such as impervious gloves, apron, workpants, long
sleeve workshirt or disposable overalls. For operations
where eye or face contact can occur, wear eye protection
such as chemical splash-proof goggles or face shield.

Storage: Keep away from sources of ignition. Do no smoke. Take
precautionary measures against static discharges. Areas
containing this material should have fire-safe practices and
electrical equipment in accordance with applicable
governmental regulations for products with the flashpoint
73.9°C.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Standard package is 400 lb in a polyethylene drum. Plastic
totes, each containg 1000 kg can also be used.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery by absorption 620

The substance is used as a solvent extraction reagent. The
solvent extraction process is continuous and recycling of
the substance is inherent to the process. The substance can
be absorbed by activated charcoal. Recovery from the
activated charcoal is by treatment with a hydrocarbon such
as toluene, the substance may then be reused.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incinerate in other specfied incinerators 665

The substance is destroyed by thermal oxidation to produce
phosphoric acid. Incineration is the only recommended
method for destruction of waste. The incinerator should be
epuipped with scrubbers to remove P2O2 and SO2 and convert
them to the corresponding acid for which large markets are
available.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable, the substance is not available to the
general public.
