First-aid measures

Inhalation: Remove casualty from exposure ensuring ones own satety whilst doing so. If conscious, ensure the casualty sits or lies down. Consult a doctor.
Eyes: Bathe the eye with running water for 5 minutes.
Skin: Wash immediately with plenty of soap and water. Consult a doctor.
Ingestion: Wash out mouth with water. Do not induce vomiting. If conscious, give half a litre of water to drink immediately. Consult a doctor.

Fire-fighting measures

Extingushing media: Water spray, alcohol resistant foam, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide. Use water spray to cool containers.
Exposure hazards: In combustion emits toxic fumes of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulphur oxides, carbon disulphide (CS2), isopropanol.
Advice for fire-fighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Wear protective clothing to prevent contact with skin and eyes.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Refer to personal protection details. Mark out the contaminated area with signs and prevent access to unauthorised personnel. Turn leaking containers leak-side up the prevent the escape of liquid.
Environmental precautions: Do not discharge into drains or rivers. Contain the spillage using bunding.
Clean up procedures: Absorb into dry earth or sand. Transfer to a closable, labelled salvage container for disposal by an appropriate method.

Handling and storage

Handling requirements: Ensure there is exhaust ventilation of the area. Avoid the formation or spread of mists in the air. Avoid direct contact with the substance.
Storage conditions: Store in cool, well ventilated area. Keep container tightly closed .
