First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove subject to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if

breathing has stopped. Seek immediate medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash with copious amounts of water for 15 - 20 minutes. Seek

medical attention immediately.

Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with

soap and water. Get medical attention if irritation develops

or persists.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Rinse mouth out thoroughly with water if the subject is

conscious. Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use agents appropriate for surrounding environment. Water or

foam are suitable.

Product arising from burning: May include CO, CO2 plus oxides of nitrogen and phosphorus.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing with self contained breathing

apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Protective clothing and respirator should be worn.

Collect material to minimize dust generation; use wet mop,

damp sponge or wet/dry HEPA vacuum. Place collected

substance into a suitable container for disposal. Spill site

should be washed and ventilated.

Handling and storage

Handling: When engineering controls are not sufficient to control dust

exposure, approved respiratory protection to EN 136 standard

should be worn. For manufacturing areas skin protection

should be provided in the form of Tyvek coveralls or gowns

(or other impervious material), along with latex or other

impermeable gloves.  Rubber, neoprene or other gloves may be

required if solvents, corrosives or other chemicals are

present. Chemical safety glasses should be worn if a full

face respirator is not being worn.

Storage: Store in sealed, upright fibre drums in a dry area away from

heat sources. Ensure containers are correctly labelled.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Fibre drums (47 x 72 cm), 34 kg maximum, UN approved.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Local exhaust ventilation is provided at

the charging operations along with the use of supplied air

respirator and protective chemical suits to control exposure

to the employees.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None.

Chemical reaction with water: None.

Dust explosion: Compound has been tested as a combustible dust with a class

ST-2 explosion strength (ASTM E 1226 method) As with any

organic material, a suspended dust cloud of this substance

may ignite if subject to a strong ignition source or static


Dust explosion determined by test: Y

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: SQ 28,796 is chemically cleaved during the drug synthesis

reaction in which it is employed. The break down products

are SQ 28,617 and cinchonidine salt. The SQ 28,617 is

consumed in the synthesis reaction. Cinchonidine is

recovered from the process and is re-used as feasible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No method of chemical neutralisation is known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Trace quantities are destroyed by biological oxidation in

wastewater treatment plant (642).

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Large quantities are destroyed by incineration (663). A

closed-circuit incinerator with scrubbers should be

employed. National regulations must be observed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Trace quantities of material in washes generated during

cleaning operations are treated in secondary biological

wastewater treatment plant.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Material not intended for public at large therefore section

not applicable.
