First-aid measures

Skin Contact
Immediately take off all contaminated clothing. For skin contact, flush with large amounts of water. If any adverse effects persist, get medical attention. The signs and symptoms that may result from an emergency or an unexpected acute overexposure include: rash to irritation to burns.

Eye Contact
For eye contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water. Seek medical advice. The signs and symptoms that may result from an emergency or an unexpected acute overexposure include: irritation to burns.

Move person to non-contaminated air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to mouth. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Seek medical attention. The signs and symptoms that may result from an emergency or an unexpected acute overexposure include: irritation – respiratory tract.

If the material is swallowed, get immediate medical attention or advice. Never give anything by mouth to a victim who is unconscious or is having convulsions. If patient has a good gag reflex, you can consider giving several ounces of water for dilution. The signs and symptoms that may result from an emergency or an unexpected acute overexposure include: gastritis.

The signs and symptoms that may result from an emergency or an unexpected acute overexposure include: arrhythmia.

Central Nervous system
Monitor for shock; anticipate seizures and treat accordingly.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure to this Material
Provide general supportive measures and treat symptomatically. Please consider other resources such as a regional Poison Control Center or web sites like the National Library of Medicine TOXNET @ A specific antidote is not known. Some of the symptoms presented may become life threatening if the exposure is a result of an emergency or an unexpected acute overexposure. Additionally, some workers with certain pre-existing medical conditions such as: asthma, allergies, or impaired pulmonary and/or liver functions, or who may be particularly susceptible to this material, may be affected by exposure to this material.

Fire-fighting measures

Phenol, dodecyl-, branched %LEL NA; %UEL N/A

Sensitivity to Static Discharge
Material can accumulate static charges from material handling management. Bond and ground as appropriate while recognizing that bonding and grounding alone may be insufficient to eliminate the potential hazard from static-accumulating flammable liquids. For additional recommendations, consult an applicable guideline such as National Fire Protection Association [NFPA] 77, “Recommended Practices on Static Electricity” and API RP “Recommended Practice 2003, Protection Against Ignitions Arising out of Static, Lightning, and Stray Currents” (2008). NOTE: The Lower Explosive Limit [LEL] for organic liquids can range from as low as 0.5 – 1%.

Suitable Extinguishing Media
Dry chemical, foam, carbon dioxide, water fog.

Extinguishing Media which must not be used for Safety Reasons
Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Protection of Firefighters/Specific Hazards Arising from the Chemical
Exclude air; treat like a gasoline or oil fire. Wear full protective clothing, including helmet, self-contained positive pressure or pressure demand breathing apparatus, protective clothing and face mask.

Accidental release measures

Personal Precautions
Follow facility/company’s emergency plans.

Environmental Precautions
Stop the flow of material, if this is without risk. Eliminate sources of ignition. Ventilate contaminated area. Contain the spill and prevent the material from obtaining access to any confined spaces, public sewers, or waterways.

Methods for Clean-Up
Ventilate the contaminated area. Eliminate ignition sources including sources of electrical, static or frictional sparks. Contain, absorb or, for solids, vacuum or sweep up, material and place in container(s) applicable for ultimate transportation or disposal. Thoroughly clean the release area with a suitable agent and collect any cleaning, rinsing media(s) for proper reclamation or disposal. Wear appropriate personal protective equipment during cleanup activities.

Other Information
Wear appropriate protective equipment and clothing during clean-up. Determine appropriate course of action for the collected material. Regulations vary. Consult local authorities before disposal.

Exposure Guidelines
All PPE use is to be determined by a qualified person.

Handling and storage

Organics can contain and electrostatic charge during processing activities including: storage, mixing, filtering, or pumping which may represent a spark hazard and, therefore, a fire hazard. Also, a sudden release of such materials from storage or process equipment particularly at elevated temperatures, and/or pressures, can result in ignitions from static absent any apparent ignition source. Flashpoint and autoignition values obtained from standard test conditions may be not applicable to other situations and, thus, the safe use of this material in any process should be reviewed by one familiar with both the storage, processing conditions and this material. Note: materials that are static accumulators may have such high potential differences created that such a situation may result in a discharge as sparks capable of causing ignition of organic vapors. Such discharges can occur from insulated conductors (plant items, drums), bulk liquids, mists and insulating plastic materials. As with all chemicals, good industrial hygiene practices should be followed when handling this material. When the container(s) is empty it may retain product residue including vapors which could accumulate. Therefore, do not cut, drill, grind, or weld empty containers. Additionally, do not conduct such activity(ies) near full, partially full, or empty product containers without appropriate workplace safety authorization(s) or permit(s).

Protect container from physical abuse. Keep the container tightly closed. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated storage area. Keep separate from incompatibles. Bond and ground containers when transferring material. Empty product containers may contain product residue. Do not reuse empty containers.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Exposure Guidelines
All PPE use is to be determined by a qualified person.

Engineering Controls
Ventilation should be sufficient to effectively remove, and prevent buildup of, any vapors, dusts, or fumes that may be generated during handling or thermal processing. In order to ensure appropriate electrical safety practices are followed, consult applicable standards. These may include guidelines such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 70, "The National Electrical Code" and NFPA 499, "Recommended Practice for the Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas". NOTE: Since this material's vapors, dust or fumes can form explosive mixtures in air, ensure that any potential areas where explosions may occur are designed to minimize potential damage. For recommendations to prevent such explosions and associated damage, consult applicable guidelines such as NFPA 69, "Standard on Explosion Prevention Systems" and/or NFPA 68, "Guide for Venting Deflagrations".

Personal Protective Equipment

Eye Protection
Wear a face shield if a splash hazard exists. Select & use eye protection per a competent health & safety professional using:OSHA (29 CFR 1910.133) or Europe's (EN166). Wear safety glasses with side shields; chemical goggles (if splashing possible).

Skin and body protection
Use appropriate hand protection. Wear impervious gloves for prolonged contact

Respiratoty Protection
Maintain material's vapors, fumes, or particulate levels below any levels of concern including, for solids, considering the material as a particulate not otherwise classified (Nuisance dust) @ 10 mg/m3. Select & use respirators per a competent health & safety professional using: OSHA (29 CFR 1910.134); ANSI (Z88.2-1992); or Europe's (EN 149).
