11 - Toxicological Information
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF EXPOSURE
To the best of our knowledge, the chemical, physical, and
toxicological properties have not been thoroughly investigated.
ROUTE OF EXPOSURE
Inhalation: Material is irritating to mucous membranes and upper
Multiple Routes: May be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, or
skin absorption. Causes eye and skin irritation.
12 - Ecological Information
No data available.
13 - Disposal Considerations
For small quantities: cautiously add to a large stirred excess of
water. Adjust the pH to neutral, separate any insoluble solids or
liquids and package them for hazardous-waste disposal. Flush the
aqueous solution down the drain with plenty of water. The
hydrolysis and neutralization reactions may generate heat and
fumes which can be controlled by the rate of addition. Observe all
federal, state, and local environmental regulations.
