Section 3 - Hazards Identification

EMERGENCY OVERVIEW

Appearance: clear, colorless viscous liquid.
Warning! Causes severe eye irritation. Harmful if absorbed through the skin. Causes skin and respiratory tract irritation. May be harmful if swallowed or inhaled. Possible risk of impaired fertility. Potential cancer hazard.
Target Organs: Eyes, skin, mucous membranes.


Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes severe eye irritation. May cause chemical conjunctivitis.
Skin: Causes skin irritation. Harmful if absorbed through the skin.
Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May be harmful if swallowed.
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation. Can produce delayed pulmonary edema.
Chronic: May impair fertility. Toxicology & carcinogenesis studies of 2,3-dibromo-1-propanol were conducted by applying the chemical in 95% ethanol to the interscapular skin of male and female rats and mice. In rats, neoplasms induced by 2,3-dibromo-1-propanol occurred in the skin, nasal mucosa, Zymbal's gland, oral mucosa, esophagus, forestomach, intestines, liver, kidney, mammary gland (females), clitoral gland (females), spleen (males), and mesothelium (males). In mice, chemical induced neoplasms occurred in the skin, forestomach, liver (males), and lung

Section 4 - First Aid Measures


Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid imme diately.
Skin: Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid immediately.
Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures


General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.

Section 7 - Handling and Storage


Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapor or mist.
Storage: Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.

Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection


Engineering Controls: Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low.

Section 12 - Ecological Information


Ecotoxicity: No data available. If released into water, 2,3-dibromopropanol is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment in the water column based upon the estimated Koc. Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process. An estimated BCF of 3 suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low. 2,3-Dibromopropanol may slowly hydrolyze in basic waters although the rate of this process is expected to be slower than for biodegradation.
Environmental: If released to air, a vapor pressure of 0.09 mm Hg at 25C indicates 2,3-dibromopropanol will exist solely as a vapor in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase 2,3-dibromopropanol will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 8 days. If released to soil, 2,3-dibromopropanol is expected to have very high mobility based upon an estimated Koc of 4. Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process.
Physical: No information available.
Other: No information available.
