[Safety Profile]

Confirmed carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic data. Poison by inhalation. Central nervous system effects. Can be formed by thermal decomposition (>70摄氏度) from trichloroethylene. Symptoms include a disabling nausea and intense jaw pain. Strong explosive when shocked or exposed to heat or air. Can react vigorously with oxidizing materials. When heated to decomposition or on contact with acid or acid fumes it emits highly toxic fumes of Cl-. See also ACETYLENE COMPOUNDS and CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS , ALIPHATIC.

[General Description]

Volatile oil with a disagreeable, sweetish odor. Mp: -68 to -65°C; bp: 32-34°C. Density: 1.38 g cm-3. Is not produced commercially.
[Air & Water Reactions]

Ignites or explodes upon contact with air (MCA Case History 1989 (1974)).
[Reactivity Profile]

Dichloroethyne is a reducing agent. Incompatible with oxidizing agents. Can ignite or explode on contact with air or if heated. Can explode if shocked. Burns in the presence of chlorine to form phosgene (Ann. Chem. 640:5(1961)).
[Potential Exposure]

DCA, dichloroacetylene, is not produced commercially and is a possible decomposition product of trichloroethylene or trichloroethane. Reported to be a by-product of vinylidene chloride (see V:0220). Also, a closed circuit anesthesia with trichloroethylene, heat and moisture produced by soda-lime absorption of CO2 may produce dichloroacetylene (DCA) along with phosgene and carbon monoxide (CO).
[First aid]

If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit. Medical observation is recommended for 24 to 48 hours after breathing overexposure, as pulmonary edema may be delayed. As first aid for pulmonary edema, a doctor or authorized paramedic may consider administering a drug or other inhalation therapy.

Explosive! Dichloroacetylene is cited by DOT as “FORBIDDEN.”

An unstable explosive; heat or shock may cause explosion. Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong acids (forms poisonous gases of phosgene and hydrogen chloride), strong bases.
