Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed

Symptoms

- Symptoms will depend on the target organs.

- Inhalation may provoke the following symptoms:

- Cough

- Breathing difficulties

- Irritation

- Redness

- Swelling of tissue

- Ingestion may provoke the following symptoms:

- Nausea

- Diarrhoea

- Abdominal pain

- allergic rhinitis

- Severe allergic skin reactions, bronchiospasm and anaphylactic shock

- Itching

- Dermatitis

- Lachrymation

- The gas deadens the sense of smell. Do not depend on odor to detect presence of gas.

Effects

- Effects on health may appear after exposure.

- Serious effects on health may appear after prolonged or repeated exposure.

- The effects will depend on target organs.

- Chronic exposure is suspected of causing genetic effects on basis of animal data. Effects on human have not been proven.

- Chronic exposure may cause allergic dermatitis.

- Exposure may cause allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis, asthma or shock.

- Ingestion may cause gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.

- Risk of respiratory disorder

- Chronic exposure may cause dermatitis.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

- Use water, carbon dioxide or dry chemical to extinguish fires.

Unsuitable extinguishing media

- High volume water jet

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture

Specific hazards during firefighting

- Under fire conditions:

- Will burn

- On combustion, toxic gases are released.

Hazardous combustion products:

- Carbon disulfide may be formed under fire conditions.

Advice for firefighters

Special protective equipment for firefighters

- Wear self-contained, positive pressure breathing apparatus and full firefighting protective clothing for fire situations only.

- For further information refer to section 8 "Exposure controls/personal protection".

Specific fire fighting methods

- Cool containers/tanks with water spray.

- Do not use a solid water stream as it may scatter and spread fire.

Further information

- Do not flush to sewer which may contain acid.

- This could result in generation of toxic and flammable carbon disulfide and carbonyl sulfide.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

- Where exposure level is not known, wear approved, positive pressure, self-contained respirator.

- Where exposure level is known, wear approved respirator suitable for level of exposure.

- In addition to the protective clothing/equipment in Section 8 (Exposure Controls/Personal Protection), wear impermeable boots.

Environmental precautions

- Stop the leak. Turn leaking containers leak-side up to prevent the escape of liquid.

- Contain the spilled material by bunding.

- Do not let product enter drains.

- Do not allow uncontrolled discharge of product into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

- Stop leak if safe to do so.

- Keep in properly labelled containers.

- Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal.

- Wash non-recoverable remainder with large amounts of water.

- Soak up with inert absorbent material and dispose of as hazardous waste.

- Decontaminate tools, equipment and personal protective equipment in a segregated area.

- Dispose of in accordance with local regulations.

- Never return spills in original containers for re-use.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling

- Do not release to water.

- Large quantities of undiluted product should not be mixed with acids, since evolution of toxic and flammable carbon disulfide and carbonyl sulfide could result. In particular, precautions must be taken to avoid the accidental discharge of large volumes of the product in acid storage tanks or any tank or containment containing acidic materials. This precaution does not, of course, apply to addition of this reagent to flotation pulps in amounts customarily used in flotation, where the reagent amounts are small and instantly diluted to concentrations well below the solubility limits.

- This is a research and development (R&D) sample. The chemical, physical, and toxicological properties of this material have not been fully investigated. Its handling or use may be hazardous. It may only be used for R&D purposes under the supervision of technically qualified individuals.

Hygiene measures

- Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

- Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday.

- When using do not eat, drink or smoke.

- Eye wash bottles or eye wash stations in compliance with applicable standards.

- Ensure that eyewash stations and safety showers are close to the workstation location.

- Keep away from food and drink.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities

Requirements for storage rooms and vessels

Recommended storage temperature: 20 °C

- To guarantee the quality and properties of the product keep according to Storage temperature and conditions
