First Aid MeasuresBack to Contents

Seek medical assistance.

Move victim to fresh air. Apply artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Do not use mouth-to-mouth method if victim ingested or inhaled the substance; induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.

Remove contaminated clothing, wash exposed area with copious amounts of water. A physician should examine the area if irritation or pain persists.

Immediately flush with running water for at least 20 minutes.
Handling and StorageBack to Contents

Keep in a cool, dry, dark location in a tightly sealed container or cylinder. Keep away from incompatible materials, ignition sources and untrained individuals. Secure and label area. Protect containers/cylinders from physical damage.

All chemicals should be considered hazardous. Avoid direct physical contact. Use appropriate, approved safety equipment. Untrained individuals should not handle this chemical or its container. Handling should occur in a chemical fume hood.
Hazards IdentificationBack to Contents

Inhalation may produce dyspnea, pleuritic chest pain, upper airway edema, pulmonary edema, hypoxemia, bronchospasm, pneumonitis, and persistent pulmonary function abnormalities. Airway hyperreactivity has also been reported.

Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. See Inhalation.

A metallic taste, increased salivary and bronchial secretions may be noted.

Ingestion of acids may result in burns, gastrointestinal bleeding, gastritis, perforations, dilation, edema, necrosis, vomiting, stenosis, fistula, and duodenal/jejunal injury.

Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground. Some of these materials may react violently with water. Containers may explode when heated. Ruptured cylinders may rocket.

Exposure Controls/Personal ProtectionBack to Contents
【Personal Protection】

Wear appropriate chemical protective clothing.

Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
【Exposure Effects】

Abnormal neuropsychologic function has been reported following hydrochloric acid exposure from a leaking tanker truck. Cretinism and goiter have been reported in children whose mothers were taking iodides.
【Poison Class】

Fire Fighting MeasuresBack to Contents
【Fire Fighting】

Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type of surrounding fire. (Material itself does not burn or burns with difficulty.) Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Do not apply water to point of leak in tank car or container. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Do not use water on material itself. If large quantities of combustibles are involved, use water in flooding quantities as spray and fog. Use water spray to knock-down vapors.
【Fire Potential】

May burn but does not ignite readily.
Accidental Release MeasuresBack to Contents
【Small spills/leaks】

Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Attempt to stop leak if without undue personnel hazard. Use water spray to knock-down vapors. Do not use water on material itself.
Stability and ReactivityBack to Contents

Decomposes by light; fumes in moist air.

Reacts rapidly and exothermically with bases Reacts with active metals in the presence of moisture, including such structural metals as aluminum and iron, to release hydrogen, a flammable gas Reacts with cyanide compounds to release gaseous hydrogen cyanide Reacts with oxidizing agents to give iodine (when passed through fuming nitric acid, each bubble produces iodine attended by a flash of red flame.

When heated to decomposition, it emits highly toxic fumes of hydrogen iodide.
【Combustion Products】

Non-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes.
