develops seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

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

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and sulfur together with 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, keeping dust formation to a minimum. Transfer to
labelled containers and dispose of by incineration in
accordance with local regulations. Wash spill site with
water avoiding discharge to watercourses.

Handling and storage

Handling: Observe the usual precautions for handling organic
chemicals. Ensure adequate ventilation. Protective clothing

(e.g. disposable paper overalls), leather safety shoes,
safety goggles, gloves (e.g. plastochrome) and a dust mask
(e.g. 3M 8500 series or Protex Premium S1181) should be
worn. An airflow helmet (e.g. type AH10) may be worn in
place of the goggles and dust mask. Wash hands and face
thoroughly after handling.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is possible. The recovered material
should be heated in methanol until dissolved. Any insoluble
matter should then be removed by filtration. Finally the
liquid should be allowed to recrystallise and collected.

(A622, A618)

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

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 and sulfur should be
fitted. (A661)

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

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
