First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: In case substance is inhaled, remove to fresh air. If
breathing is difficult, apply artificial respiration and get
medical attention immediately.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash immediately with water for at least 15 minutes. Call a
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected areas with soap and water after removing
contaminated clothing.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Drink plenty of water and call a physician immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Dry chemical, CO2

Product arising from burning: CO, CO2 and NOX

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Fire-fighting personnel should wear full-face,
self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from the immediate vicinity.

Prevent spillage from spreading by using sand (for banking)
and absorb the liquid substance using a suitable material.
Transfer to a suitably labelled, sealable container.

Do not allow liquid to enter open waters or ground water.

A limited cover garment (BS-7184) should be worn, along with
goggles or face shield and solvent resistant gloves. For
full details refer to Section 2.3.1.

Handling and storage

Handling: Gas tight coverall with self contained breathing apparatus
or an air-supplie complete cover garment is recommended when
handling EDMAA. However, a limited cover garment (BS-7184)
is adequate when dealing with an accidental spillage.

Goggles or face shields (BS-2092) and solvent resistant
gloves (BS-1651) should be worn.

Technical safety equipment: local exhaust ventilation.

Storage: Store in a clearly labelled, sealed container in a cool,
dark and dry area. Keep away from sources of ignition and
protect from light and heat.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None

Chemical reaction with water: None; hydrolysis occurs slowly.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: In case material is spilled or contaminated during handling,
it can be re-used after purification through extraction by
toluene and distillation under reduced pressure.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Hydrolysis, biodegradation or incineration will neutralize
any potential hazardous effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Extensive dilution (under 10 g/m3 water) before discharge to

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: As NOx is produced, EDMAA should be incinerated at a plant
equiped to treat NOX products.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Concentration of EDMAA should be reduced at 10 g/m3 water by
extraction or dilution.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable
