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.
