Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical

attention if irritation develops.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, carbon dioxide and dry powder may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon and

nitrogen together with hydrogen chloride and hydrogen

cyanide and some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and a self contained breathing

apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1). Sweep up

spill into a suitable container. Avoid dust formation.

Dispose of by incineration at a suitable facility. Wash

spill site and do not allow spill to enter waterways.

Handling and storage

Handling: Suitable protective clothing, impervious gloves (eg rubber

or neoprene) and safety goggles (eg BS20920 or equivalent)

should be worn.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area away from

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: Keep away from acids and oxidising agents.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is possible.

A xylene solution of the substance may be washed with water

prior to crystallisation.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known, but strong alkaline hydrolysis should at least

remove the cyano-function.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method at a suitable facility. Waste gas

treatment to remove oxides of nitrogen, hydrogen chloride

and hydrogen cyanide should be fitted. (A temperature of

1200 deg C is probably desirable to avoid the possibility of

dioxin formation)

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

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance itself and preparations containing it will not

enter the public domain.
