[Safety Profile]

Poison by ingestion, inhalation, and intraperitoneal routes. Moderately toxic by skin contact. Corrosive. An eye, skin, and mucous membrane irritant. A very dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame; can react vigorously with oxidzing materials. Reacts with water or steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes. To fight fire, use CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits highly toxic fumes of Cl-.

Hazard InformationBack Directory
[General Description]

A colorless liquid with a pungent odor. Flash point 66°F. Very toxic by inhalation. Corrosive to metals and tissue. Vapors are heavier than air. Prolonged exposure to low concentrations or short exposure to high concentrations may have adverse health effects from inhalation.
[Reactivity Profile]

ETHYL CHLOROFORMATE(541-41-3) decomposes slowly in water to form ethanol, HCl, and CO2 Attacks many metals especially in humid atmosphere [Handling Chemicals Safely 1980. p. 476]. May react vigorously or explosively if mixed with diisopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts [J. Haz. Mat., 1981, 4, 291].
[Air & Water Reactions]

Highly flammable. Emits fumes containing HCl on contact with moist air. Decomposes exothermically but slowly in water.
[Hazard]

Flammable, dangerous fire risk. Strong irritant to eyes and skin.
[Health Hazard]

Inhalation causes mucous membrane irritation, coughing, and sneezing. Vapor causes severe lachrymation; liquid causes acid-type burns of eyes and skin, like those of hydrochloric acid. Ingestion causes severe burns of mouth and stomach.
[Potential Exposure]

Heavily used in industry for various processes; in ore processing, photography, making other chemicals including amines, carbamates, isocyanates; polymers, diethyl carbonate; nitriles, etc.
[First aid]

Inhalation: remove to fresh air; use artificial respiration if breathing has stopped; call a doctor; keep victim quiet and administer oxygen if needed. Eyes: flush with water for at least 15 min.; see a doctor. Skin: wash liberally with water for at least 15 min., then apply dilute solution of sodium bicarbonate or commercially prepared neutralizer. Ingestion: do NOT induce vomiting; give large amount of water; get medical attention
[Fire Hazard]

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic chlorine and phosgene gases may be formed in fires.
[Shipping]

UN1182 Ethyl chloroformate, Hazard class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poison Inhalation Hazard, 3-Flammable liquid, 8-Corrosive material Inhalation Hazard Zone B
[Incompatibilities]

Highly flammable; Vapors may form explosive mixture with air. Emits fumes containing HCl on contact with moist air. Decomposes exothermically but slowly in water. Ethyl chloroformate decomposes slowly in water forming ethanol, hydrogen chloride and carbon dioxide. May react vigorously, possibly explosively, if mixed with di-isopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts. Reacts with acids, alkalies, amines, alcohols, oxidizers and water. Corrosive to metals especially in the presence of moisture.
