First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: symptomatic treatment.

Emergency measure - Eyes: irrigate promptly with clean water and obtain medical


Emergency measure - Skin: wash with copious amounts of water.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Fluorine, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and (?)soot may

be produced along with the highly toxic fumes of the

volatilised substance itself. Foam, CO2, dry powder or

vapourising liquid may be used to fight fires. Respirators

should be used.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Absorb spillages on sand and transfer to waste containers

for disposal at an approved, and regulated, waste-disposal

site; then clean the spillage area with water and


Handling and storage

Handling: Normal precautions should be taken to avoid ingestion,

skin, or eye contact, or the inhalation of vapour; goggles

and gloves (Neoprene rubber prefered to pvc) to be worn;

and it should be handled only in well-ventilated areas so

as to avoid the build up of flammable vapour.

Storage: Containers to be kept tightly sealed and stored in a cool

place away from sources of ignition.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from  a minor spillage or discharge to effluent is

not practicable but a large spillage would be diverted to a

holding tank for appropiate treatment and eventual

discharge to the sewage system. Checks routinely carried

out on the reaction  procedure etc usually ensure that the

factory discharge will contain less than 0.5 mg/l of the


Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: providing the substance is diluted to a concentration of

5.6 mg/l or below, there is likely to be no harmful effect

on aquatic life.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: the substance may be rendered harmless by burning under

carefully controlled conditions.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: the substance is unlikely to have any adverse effect on

either aerobic or anaerobic processes at sewage works. It

is also unlikely to be appreciably degraded in aerobic

processes of short duration nor removed significantly by

absorption on sludge ("bioelimination") and so is capable

of passing largely unchanged through an effluent treatment

plant; however its high volatility means that it is

unlikely to accumulate in water systems and therefore not

likely to pose a hazard to aquatic life.
