are recommended.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may include oxides of carbon and

sulfur and hydrogen chloride.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: A self-contained breathing apparatus should be used.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable skin, eye and respiratory protection (see

2.3.1). Isolate and evacuate area and collect spill by

careful sweeping or vacuuming. Transfer to a labelled,

double polythene bag for recovery or disposal by

incineration. Clean the contaminated area with water and

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Uncontaminated material can be recovered by

recrystallisation from hot ethanol, filtration to 10 micron

and drying.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Neutralisation is not recommended as the chemicals required

would increase the hazard.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance should be disposed of by incineration; minimum

residence time 2 seconds at a temperature of 1000-1200 deg

C. Waste gas treatment to remove hydrogen chloride and

sulphur oxides should be fitted.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain
