Section 2 - Composition, Information on Ingredients Chemical Name
Appearance: yellow solid. Flash Point: 84 deg C.
Warning! Harmful if swallowed, inhaled, or absorbed through the skin. Causes eye, skin, and
respiratory tract irritation. May cause central nervous system depression. Moisture sensitive.
Target Organs: Central nervous system.
Potential Health Effects
Eye: Causes eye irritation.
Skin: Causes skin irritation. Harmful if absorbed through the skin.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and
Inhalation: Causes respiratory tract irritation. Inhalation at high concentrations may cause CNS
depression and asphixiation. Harmful if inhaled.
Chronic: Exposure to small amounts of cyanide compounds over long periods of time is reported
to cause loss of appetite, headache, weakness, nausea, dizziness, and symptoms of irritation of

Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting
the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
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: Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure and move to fresh air
immediately. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. If breathing has ceased apply artificial respiration using oxygen and a suitable mechanical device such as a bag and a mask.
Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically and supportively.

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. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Containers may explode when heated.
Extinguishing Media: Do NOT get water inside containers. Use water spray, dry chemical,
carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
Flash Point: 84 deg C ( 183.20 deg F)
Autoignition Temperature: Not applicable.
Explosion Limits, Lower:Not available.
Upper: Not available.
NFPA Rating: (estimated) Health: 2; Flammability: 1; Instability: 0

General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks: Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in
suitable container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Remove all sources of ignition. Use a spark-proof tool. Provide ventilation. Do not get water inside containers.
Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before
reuse. Minimize dust generation and accumulation. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.
Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not ingest or inhale. Do not allow contact with water. Use only in a chemical fume hood. Discard contaminated shoes. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Keep from contact with moist air and steam. Storage: Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in
a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible
substances. Store protected from moisture. 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 only under a chemical fume hood.
