First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment. Seek medical
attention if patient feels unwell.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Seek medical attention if irritation persists.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and plenty of water. Seek medical attention
if irritation persists.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Foam, water mist, fog or carbon dioxide.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg oxides of carbon).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

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


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment.


Absorb spillages with a suitable inert material (eg. sand or
soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste containers,
or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine. Containers filled
with waste material must be labelled in the same way as the
original substance containers.


Clean the spillage area with detergent and water. Do not
discharge to drain.


Dispose of waste material in accordance with local
regulations by landfill or incineration.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


Engineering controls are used to reduce exposure to the
substance. Wherever possible, materials are handled in
closed systems, e.g. pumps and pipelines and in bulk stock
tanks/tankers where possible/appropriate. Some use of
smaller containers, e.g. mobile tanks and drums, is,
however, inevitable, e.g. in distillations and drumming-off
product for sale. Dehydrogenation and distillation are
carried out in the open air. Local exhaust ventilation is
available in the drumming-off area.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be used.

Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards.


Furthermore, when respiratory protective equipment has to be
used, it must be capable of adequately controlling exposure,
be suitable for the purpose, and conform to the appropriate
international or national standards.

Storage: Store in drums or bulk storage tanks in warehouses, covered
areas or in the open air.


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 200 litre lacquer-lined steel drum. Mobile tanks (stainless
steel) or bulk storge tanks are used for on-site storage and
use as an intermediate.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Handling of the substance will be by trained operators, and
will be kept to a minimum.


Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration or landfill. In principle, it
may be possible to recover larger spillages of
uncontaminated material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The notification tests have shown that the substance acutely
harmful by ingestion and a skin irritant. No chemical
treatment is practicable to neutralise these hazardous
health properties.


No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages mixed with inert
material (eg. sand or soil) may be disposed of by landfill
at an authorised tip in accordance with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment.
