Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Symptomatic treatment.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Rinse with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.

Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with water. Symptomatic treatment.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder and water may be used.

Product arising from burning: Combustion products may contain carbon oxides together with

iodine containing compounds.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear full protective clothing and a self-contained breathing


Accidental release measures

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

Wear suitable protective clothing (cf 2.3.1). Absorb

spillage with a suitable inert material (eg sand or soil).

Transfer material to waste containers or use an approved

sealed industrial vacuum machine. Label waste containers as

for the substance.

Clean the spillage area with water. Do not allow spillages

to enter surface drainage systems. Dispose of waste in

accordance with local regulations at a controlled landfill

site or approved incineration facility.

Handling and storage

Handling: Store, handle and use under conditions of good industrial

hygiene in conformity with local regulations. Avoid exposure

by ingestion, inhalation and skin and eye contact. Use

engineering controls where possible to minimise exposure. If

exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled, use

eye protection (eg goggles), imnpervious gloves, and

protective clothing and footwear.

If respiratory equipment is required, it must be capable of

adequately controlling exposure, be suitable for the purpose

and conform to appropriate standards. A dust mask and filter

conforming to EN49 FFP1 is recommended.

Storage: Store in sealed containers at room temperature.

Avoid sources of ignition.

Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance will be packaged in 200 litre drums with an

inner polyethylene liner.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None reported

Chemical reaction with water: The substance hydrolyses to acetic acid and the free alcohol

which rearranges to give a furan ester.

Dust explosion: Not applicable to a liquid.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of spilt material for reuse may be possible,

especially if the substance is uncontaminated, but no method

has been developed.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No method of neutralisation of the hazardous properties is

known. Hydrolysis under alkaline conditions is a possibility

but the effects of the hydrolysis products are not fully


Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal of substance absorbed on an inert material at a

controlled landfill site is possible (A650).

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Disposal by incineration is possible at an approved


Waste gas treatment to remove sulfur oxides and halogen

products should be used (A661).

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

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