SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:  Inhalation:  Yes (Gosselin 1984, p.  11-137)
                      Skin:   Yes  (Gosselin 1984, p. 11-137)
                      Ingestion:  Yes (Sax 1984, p.  1868)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   Methylmercuric
    dicyanamide is  extremely toxic to humans.   The probable lethal  dose for
    humans is 5-50  mg/kg of body weight  (between 7 drops and one teaspoon  for
    a 150  Ib.  person)  (*Gosselin 1984).  Humans may be poisoned by  feeding on
    the flesh of animals which have ingested this fungicide ("Clark 1981).
    Eating treated  seeds may also cause poisoning.  The poisoning may show
    delayed manifestations on  the nervous system.  Patients frequently become
    gradually worse after  their  illness  is recognized and exposure  is stopped
    (Hayes, 1982, p. 21).  This compound is a strong skin irritant  and
    produces blisters  and  other dermatitis ("Gosselin 1976).

    Signs  and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Prolonged exposure to skin may produce
    blisters (*Gosselin  1984).   In the case of ingestion there is nausea and
    abdominal pain.  Vomiting  and diarrhea may occur.  Burning or prickling of
    the lips,  tongue,  and  extremities.  The patient may be confused,
    hallucinate, be irritable, have disturbed sleep, lose muscular
    coordination and lose  memory.  Visual fields may narrow concentrically;
    emotional instability  may  occur as well as inability to concentrate, with
    stupor and coma (*Rumack 1975 to Present).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Mercury-Based
    Pesticide,  n.o.s.)   Move victim to fresh air; call emergency medical
    care.   If not breathing, give artificial respiration.   If breathing is
    difficult,  give oxygen.  In case of contact with material,  immediately
    flush  skin or eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.   Speed  in
    removing material  from skin  is of extreme importance.   Remove and isolate
    contaminated clothing  and  shoes at the site.  Keep victim quiet and
    maintain normal body temperature.  Effects may be delayed;  keep victim
    under  observation  (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

SECTION VII -- PRECAUTIONS FOR  SAFE HANDLING  AND  USE
(Steps to be  Taken in Case Material  is Released or Spilled)

    (Non-Specific -- Mercury-Based Pesticide n.o.s.)  Keep unnecessary people
    away; isolate hazard area and deny entry.  Stay upwind;  keep  out of low
    areas.  Ventilate closed spaces before entering.  Wear positive pressure
    breathing apparatus and special protective clothing.  Remove  and isolate
    contaminated clothing at the site.  Do not touch spilled material.   Use
    water to  reduce vapors.  In event of spill or leak:  take up  with
    absorbent material and place in containers with covers.   Small dry spill:
    with clean shovel place material  into clean, dry container and cover; move
    containers from spill area.  Dike far ahead of spill if large (DOT 1984,
    Guide 55).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:   Inhalation:  Yes (-Rumack 1975 to Present)
                       Skin:   Yes  (-Rumack  1975 to Present)
                       Ingestion:  Yes (*Rumack 1975 to Present)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   The primary  health
    hazard is as  a cyanide  (*Gosselin 1976).  (Non-specific -- Cyanide,
    Inorganic, n.o.s.)-   It is poisonous and may be fatal if inhaled,
    swallowed or  absorbed through the skin.  Fire may produce irritating or
    poisonous gases (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Signs and Symptoms  of Exposure:  As  a cyanide, massive doses may
    produce,  without warning,  sudden loss of consciousness and prompt  death
    from respiratory arrest.   Smaller but still lethal doses result in illness
    that may  be prolonged for  1  or more hours.  Other symptoms may include
    numbness  in throat,  salivation, nausea, anxiety, dizziness,  irregular
    breathing, odor of  bitter  almonds may be noted on breath, blood pressure
    may rise, slowing of the heart beat, sensation of constriction in  the
    chest, unconsciousness  followed by violent convulsions and paralysis
    (*Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not  Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:   (Non-Specific -- Cyanide,
    Inorganic, n.o.s.)   Move victim to fresh air; call emergency medical
    care.   If not breathing, give artificial respiration.  If breathing is
    difficult, give oxygen.  In  case of contact with material, immediately
    flush skin or eyes  with running water for at least 15 minutes.  Speed in
    removing  material from  skin  is of extreme importance.  Remove and  isolate
    contaminated  clothing and  shoes at the  site.  Keep victim quiet and
    maintain  normal body temperature.  Effects may be delayed; keep victim
    under observation (DOT  1984, Guide 55).

SECTION  III -- FIRE AND  EXPLOSION  HAZARD  DATA

    Flash  Point (Method Used):  Not Found
    Flammable  Limits:  Noncombustible (NFPA 1978, p. 49-34)
        LEL:   Not Found
        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Extinguish fire using agent suitable for type
    of surrounding  fire.  Material  itself does not burn or burns with
    difficulty.  Use foam,  carbon dioxide, or dry chemical.  Cool all affected
    containers  with  flooding quantities of water.  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 absorb
    vapors.   Keep material  out  of water sources and sewers.  Use water spray
    to knock down vapors  (Student 1981, p. 158).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  Wear full protective clothing.
    Avoid  direct water contact  as it will cause cyanogen bromide to decompose,
    releasing toxic  gases (*NFPA 1978).  Avoid breathing vapors or dusts; keep
    upwind;  wear self-contained breathing apparatus (Student 1981, p. 158).

    Unusual  Fire and Explosion Hazards:  Cyanogen  bromide  is not
    combustible itself, but impure  cyanogen bromide decomposes rapidly and
    tends  to explode (*Merck 1976).  A violent reaction may take place on
    contact  with large quantities of acid (*NFPA 1978).  Vapors are highly
    irritating  (*Merck 1976).


SECTION  IV -- REACTIVITY DATA

    Stability:  Unstable:   Yes,  impure material decomposes rapidly and tends
                           to explode (*Merck 1976)
                 Stable:

        Conditions to Avoid:  Avoid physical damage, contact with acids or
        water,  and  store  away from  a location where water may be needed for
        fire control (*NFPA 1978).

    Incompatibility  (Materials to Avoid):  Water, acids  (-NFPA 1978)

    Hazardous  Decomposition or Byproducts:  When material is heated to
    decomposition,  it  emits very toxic  fumes of cyanide and bromide (Sax 1984,
    p. 825).

                       Ingestion:  Yes  (-Rumack 1975 to Present)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Super toxic;  probable
    oral lethal dose in humans  is  less  than 5 mg/kg or a taste (less than 7
    drops) for a 70  kg (150  Ib.) person (*Gosselin 1976).  Vapors are highly
    irritant and very poisonous  ("Merck 1976).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Cyanogen bromide's  toxic  action
    resembles that of hydrocyanic  acid;  it has a pronounced irritant effect
    and high concentrations  may  cause pulmonary edema (*Encyc Occupat Health
    and Safety 1971).   High  concentrations produce excessive respiration
    (causing increased uptake  of cyanide), then labored breathing, paralysis,
    unconsciousness, convulsions and respiratory arrest.  Headache, dizziness,
    nausea, and vomiting may occur with lesser concentrations.  Chronic
    exposure may cause fatigue  and weakness ("Merck 1976).  Patients may
    experience confusion,  anxiety, an initial rise in blood pressure with a
    decreased heart  beat followed  by an increased heart beat; cyanosis is not
    a consistent finding,  in fact, the  patient may be reddish.  An odor of
    bitter almonds on the  patient's breath may be present  (*Rumack 1975 to
    Present).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Individuals with
    chronic diseases of the  kidneys, respiratory tract, skin, or thyroid are
    at greater risk  of developing  toxic cyanide effects  (*Encyc Occupat Health
    and Safety 1983).

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  Move victim to  fresh air; call
    emergency medical care.  If  not breathing, give artificial respiration.
    If breathing is  difficult,  give oxygen.   In case of contact with material,
    immediately flush skin or  eyes with running water for  at least 15
    minutes.  Speed  in removing material from skin is of extreme importance.
    Remove and isolate contaminated clothing  and shoes at  the site.  Keep
    victim quiet and maintain  normal body temperature.  Effects may be
    delayed; keep victim under observation  (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    fatal  if swallowed or  absorbed through skin.  Contact  may cause burns to
    the skin and eyes.   Fire may produce irritating or poisonous  gases (DOT
    1984,  Guide 55).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Can  cause death due to respiratory
    failure (Merck 1983, p. 385).  Health effects are similar to  cyanides and
    iodides (Sax 1984, p.  826).  Upon ingestion, a bitter, acrid,  burning
    taste  is sometimes noted.  Other symptoms are anxiety, confusion,
    dizziness,  giddiness,  rapid  and difficult breathing,  palpitations,
    tightness in chest,  unconsciousness, violent convulsions and  death
    (Gosselin 1984,  p. III-127).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Cyanide or
    Cyanide Mixture,  Dry)  Move  victim to fresh air;  call  emergency medical
    care.   If not breathing, give artificial ,respiration.   If breathing is
    difficult,  give oxygen.  In  case of contact with material, immediately
    flush  skin or eyes with running water for at least 15  minutes.   Speed in
    removing material from skin  is of extreme importance.   Remove and  isolate

SECTION III -- FIRE AND  EXPLOSION  HAZARD  DATA

    Flash Point (Method Used):  Not Found
    Flammable  Limits:  Non-combustible  (NIOSH/OSHA 1978, p.  178)
        LEL:   Not Found
        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Extinguish small fires with water only,  no  dry
    chemicals  or carbon dioxide.  For large fires, flood the fire area with
    water (DOT 1984, Guide  47).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  Do not move cargo or vehicle if
    cargo has  been exposed  to heat.  Cool containers that are exposed to
    flames with water from  the side until well after fire is out.  For massive
    fire, use  unmanned hose holder or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible,
    withdraw from area and  let fire burn (DOT 1984, Guide 47).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:   Spontaneous chemical  reaction may
    produce fire.  Material is a strong oxidizer.  The potential for explosion
    is severe,  especially when exposed to heat or to powerful oxidizing  or
    reducing agents; or when shocked or heated ('"Sax 1975).   It is more  easily
    detonated  than TNT (*Patty 1963).  Impurities can also cause explosion
    (*Merck 1976).  The material is highly sensitive; hydrocarbons exposed to
    it form exceedingly sensitive explosives (*NFPA 1978).


SECTION IV -- REACTIVITY DATA

    Stability:   Unstable:  Yes  ('--Sax  1975)
                 Stable:

        Conditions to Avoid:   Impurities, shock, heat, and reducing agents
        (*Sax  1975)

    Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid):  Hydrocarbons,  aluminum, toluene,
    cotton,  aromatic nitro  compounds (Sax 1984, p. 2550); alkalis, metals
    (NIOSH/OSHA 1978, p.  178); and rubber (Merck 1983, p. 1321).

    Hazardous  Decomposition or Byproducts:  When heated to decomposition,
    it emits highly toxic fumes of oxides of nitrogen.  Shock will explode it
    (*Sax 1975).

    Hazardous  Polymerization:   May Occur:   Not  Found
                               May Not Occur:   Not  Found

                      Ingestion:  Yes (*Patty 1963)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   Acute effects include
    irritation of the  eyes and respiratory passages and mild burns  to the  skin
    (*Sax  1975).   After  more prolonged inhalation, headache and respiratory
    distress  may  occur (*Patty 1963).  After prolonged exposure,  central
    nervous system, heart, liver, and kidney damage can occur as  well as
    pulmonary edema  (*ACGIH 1980; *Sax 1975).

    Signs  and Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms include burning eyes, skin,
    and mucous membranes  (*Sax 1975); headache, difficulty  in breathing, and
    dizziness.  Skin contact results in bluish discoloration of skin and
    mucous membranes (cyanosis), and skin burns (NIOSH/OSHA 1978, p.  179).
    Chronic signs and  symptoms included weariness, and pneumonia  (*ACGIH 1980).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  Exposed skin should be washed
    twice  with soap and  water.   Flush eyes with water at least 15 minutes
    (*Rumack  1975 to Present).


SECTION  VI  -- USE INFORMATION

    It is  proposed as  an irritant war gas (*Merck 1976).  It is used as an
    oxidizing agent in rocket  propeHants; explosives; diesel fuel  additives;
    and a  reagent for  detecting  double bonds (*SRI).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS  FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to  be  Taken in  Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Remove all ignition  sources.  Ventilate area of spill or leak.   Collect
    for reclamation or absorb  in vermiculite, dry sand, earth or a  similar
    material.   Avoid shock and friction if  liquid spills on combustible
    material  such as wood, or  paper (^NIOSH/OSHA 1981).  Use water  spray to
    reduce vapors. Flush  area with flooding amounts of water and dike spill
    for later disposal.   Keep  unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and
    deny entry.   Stay  upwind;  keep out of low areas.  Wear positive pressure,
    self-contained breathing apparatus and  full protective clothing (DOT  1984,
    Guide  47).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD  DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute,  Delayed,  and Chronic):  It may be fatal if
    inhaled,  swallowed or absorbed through skin.   Contact may cause burns to
    skin and  eyes.  Fire may produce irritating or poisonous gases.  Runoff
    from fire control water may give off poisonous gases.  Runoff  from fire
    control or dilution water may cause pollution (DOT  1984, Guide 55).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  It causes tearing and blistering
    (Merck 1983,  p. 443).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated  by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:   Move victim  to fresh air; call
    emergency medical care.  If not breathing,  give artificial respiration.
    If breathing  is difficult, give oxygen.   In case  of contact with material,
    immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 15
    minutes.   Speed in removing material from skin is of extreme importance.
    Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes  at the site.  Keep
    victim quiet  and maintain normal body temperature.   Effects may be
    delayed;  keep victim under observation (DOT 1984, Guide 55).


SECTION  VI  -- USE INFORMATION

    Formerly  extensively used in textiles (especially polyester fabrics) and
    still  employed in polyurethane foams,  textile backcoating and  adhesives
    (Gosselin 1984, p. 11-303).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be  Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Avoid  inhalation.  Wear respiratory protection, eye protection and
    protective clothing.  In case of contact, immediately flush skin or eyes
    with water (see Section V above).  Do not touch spilled material; stop
    leak if you can do so without risk.  Use water spray to reduce vapors.
    For small spills, absorb with sand or other noncombustible absorbent
    material  and  place into containers for later disposal.  Small  dry spills:
    with clean shovel place material into clean,  dry  container and cover; move
    containers from spill area.  For large spills, dike far ahead  of spill for
    later  disposal (DOT  1984, Guide 55).

    concentrations  of  10-100 ppm by  inhalation became severely ill (Encyc
    Occupat Health  and Safety  1983,  p. 462).  The median lethal dosage is
    1,500 mg/minute/mj (U.S. Army 1975, p. 3-9).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Irritates the eyes  in quantities which
    do not significantly damage the  skin or respiratory tract,  insofar as
    single exposures  are concerned.  After mild vapor exposure, there may be
    no skin lesions.   After severe vapor exposures, or after exposure to the
    liquid, erythema  may appear.  Irritation and itching may occur.   Later,
    blisters may appear in the erythematous areas.   Effects on the respiratory
    tract include irritation of the  nose and throat,  hoarseness progressing to
    loss of voice,  and a persistent  cough.  Fever,  labored respiration, and
    moist rales  develop.   Bronchial  pneumonia may appear after the first 24
    hours.  Following ingestion or systemic absorption, material causes
    inhibition of cell mitosis, resulting in depression of the blood-forming
    mechanism and injury to other tissues.  Severe diarrhea, which may be
    hemorrhagic, occurs.   Lesions are most marked in the small intestine and
    consist of degenerative changes  and necrosis in the mucous membranes.
    Ingestion of 2  to  6 milligrams causes nausea and vomiting (U.S.  Army 1975,
    p. 3-9).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Nitrogen
    Mustards) Stop exposure and treat symptomatically (Gilman 1985, p.
    1257).  (Non-Specific  -- Poisonous Liquid, n.o.s.)  Move victim to fresh
    air; call emergency medical pare.  If not breathing, give artificial
    respiration. If  breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact
    with material,  immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at
    least 15 minutes.   Speed in removing material from skin is of extreme
    importance.   Remove and isolate  contaminated clothing and shoes at the
    site.   Keep  victim quiet and maintain normal body temperature.  Effects
    may be delayed; keep victim under observation (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    result of systemic cyanide poisoning (*Merck 1976).   (Non-Specific  --
    Cyanide)   Few poisons  are more  rapidly lethal.   Average oral  lethal  dose
    for hydrogen cyanide is approximately 60-90 rag (corresponds to  200 mg of
    potassium cyanide).   Cause of death is lack of oxygen to the  body's  cells
    (especially the brain  and heart) as a result of the  chemical  inhibiting
    cell enzymes (Gosselin 1984, pp. III-124-125).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   (Non-Specific -- Cyanide)   Symptoms
    include rapid and  irregular  breathing, anxiety,  confusion,  odor of bitter
    almonds (on breath or  vomitus), nausea, vomiting (if oral exposure),
    irregular heart beat,  a feeling of tightness in the  chest,  bright pink
    coloration of the  skin, sweating, protruding eyeballs,  dilated  pupils,
    unconsciousness followed by  convulsions, involuntary urination  and
    defecation, paralysis  and respiratory arrest (heart  will beat after
    breathing stops)  (Gosselin 1984, p. III-126-127).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Cyanide) Get
    emergency medical  treatment  immediately.  If victim  has taken the
    substance by ingestion (orally) and is not showing symptoms,  give syrup of
    ipecac.  If there  is exposure through skin contact,  wash immediately with
    soap and  water.   If  severe skin contact, treat patient  for oral or
    inhalation exposure.   Exposed eyes should be flushed copiously  with  water
    for at least 15 minutes.  If the victim stops breathing before  emergency
    medical treatment  is available, give artificial respiration or  oxygen, but
    avoid mouth to mouth respiration; also avoid contact with contaminated
    skin (Gosselin 1984,  p. III-127; *Rumack 1975 to Present).


SECTION  VI  -- USE INFORMATION

    Used in pharmaceutical and polymer synthesis ('"Merck 1976).


SECTION  VII  -  PRECAUTIONS  FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to be  Taken in  Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    (Non-Specific --  Propionitrile)  Do not touch spilled material; stop leak
    if you can do so without risk.  Use water spray to reduce vapors.   Absorb
    small spills with  sand or other noncombustible absorbent material.   Dike
    far ahead of spill for later disposal.  Isolate hazard area and deny
    entry.  Stay upwind.   Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and
    special protective clothing  (DOT 1984, Guide 28).

                      Ingestion:  Yes (Sax 1985,  p. 463)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   Acute toxicity  is high
    by ingestion,  inhalation,  and skin irritation.  Small quantities may cause
    death or permanent injury  after very short exposure (*Sax 1968).
    Chloromethyl  ether is  an alkylating agent which is a recognized human
    carcinogen.   There is  a strong association between industrial exposure  and
    excess lung cancer (*Sittig  1981; *NIOSH 1984; *IARC 1972-85).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Vapor is severly  irritating to the
    skin and mucous  membranes  and may cause cornea damage which may heal
    slowly (*Sittig  1981).

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air;  call
    emergency medical care.  If  not breathing,  give artificial respiration.
    If breathing  is  difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact with material,
    immediately flush skin or  eyes with running water for at least  15
    minutes.   Speed  in removing  material from skin is of extreme importance.
    Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at the site.  Keep
    victim quiet  and maintain  normal body temperature.  Effects may be
    delayed.   Keep victim  under  observation (*DOT 1984).


SECTION  VI  -- USE INFORMATION

    Used as  a research chemical  and lab reagent (*Hawley 1977; *SRI).   Not
    used commercially in the U.S. (*SRI), but was formerly used for
    chloromethylation in industry (*ACGIH 1980).  Has been used as  an
    alkylating agent in  the manufacture of polymers (*Sittig 1981).

SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be Taken in  Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Full body protective clothing and gloves should be used  on entering  areas
    of potential  exposure.  Those employed in handling operations  should be
    provided with full-face, supplied air respirators of continuous  flow or
    pressure demand type (^Sittig 1981).  Keep unnecessary people  away;
    isolate hazard area  and deny entry.  Stay upwind; keep out of  low  areas.
    Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.  Wear positive pressure
    breathing apparatus  and special protective clothing.  Remove and isolate
    contaminated  clothing at the site.  Spill or leak:  do not touch spilled
    material;  stop leak  if you can do so without risk.  Use  water  spray  to
    reduce vapors.   Small spills:  absorb with sand or other noncombustible
    absorbent material and place into containers for later disposal.   Large
    spills:  dike far  ahead of spills for later disposal (*DOT 1984).

                         ETHYL THIOCYANATE
SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed, and Chronic):  This  material  is highly
    toxic if ingested (Sax 1984, p.  1394).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Toxicity  hazard similar to thiocyanate
    (Sax 1984,  p.  1394).   Prolonged  absorption may produce various skin
    eruptions,  runny nose,  and occasionally dizziness, cramps, nausea,
    vomiting and mild or severe  disturbances of the nervous system (Sax 1984,
    p.  2568).   Ethyl thiocyanate is  an  aliphatic thiocyanate (Gosselin 1981,
    p.  11-288).   Aliphatic thiocyanates have the following signs and
    symptoms.   The ingestion  of  a concentrated solution may lead to vomiting.
    The principal systemic reaction  is  probably one of central nervous
    depression,  interrupted by periods  of restlessness, abnormally fast and
    deep respiratory movements and  convulsions.  Death is usually due to
    respiratory arrest from paralysis of the medullary centers.   In nonfatal
    cases injuries to the  liver  and  kidneys may appear (Gosselin 1981, p.
    111-16).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  Treatment is as for aliphatic
    thiocyanates (Gosselin 1981, p.  11-288).  Because cyanide is probably
    largely responsible for poisonings, antidotal measures against cyanide
    should be instituted promptly  (Gosselin 1981, p.  111-16).  First aid for
    cyanide includes moving the  victim  to fresh air.   Call emergency medical
    care.  If not breathing,  give artificial respiration.  If breathing is
    difficult,  give oxygen.   In  case of contact with material, immediately
    flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.  Speed in
    removing material from skin  is  of extreme importance.  Remove and isolate
    contaminated clothing  and shoes  at  the site.  Keep victim quiet and
    maintain normal body  temperature.   Effects may be delayed, keep victim
    under observation (DOT 1984, Guide  55).


SECTION VI -- USE INFORMATION

    It is an agricultural  insecticide  (Gosselin  1981, p. 11-288).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed, and Chronic):   Most  toxic  of  the
    nitrogen mustards.   The median  lethal dose for inhalation is
    1,500 mg-min/m3;  for skin  absorption (masked personnel) is
    10,000 mg-min/m1.   The medium incapacitating dose for eye injury is
    200 mg-min/m3;  for skin absorption is 2,500 mg-min/m3 (U.S. Army 1975,
    p.  3-10).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Irritates the  eyes  in quantities which
    do not significantly damage  the skin or respiratory tract, insofar as
    single exposures  are concerned.  After mild vapor exposure, there may be
    no skin lesions.   After severe  vapor exposures, or after exposure to the
    liquid, erythema  may appear.  Irritation and itching may occur.  Later,
    blisters may appear in the erythematous areas.   Effects on the respiratory
    tract include irritation of  the nose and throat, hoarseness progressing to
    loss of voice,  and a persistent cough.  Fever,  labored respiration, and
    moist rales  develop.  Bronchial pneumonia may appear after the first 24
    hours.  Following ingestion  or  systemic absorption, material causes
    inhibition of cell mitosis,  resulting in depression of the blood-forming
    mechanism and injury to other tissues.  Severe diarrhea, which may be
    hemorrhagic, occurs.  Lesions are most marked in the small intestine and
    consist of degenerative changes and necrosis in the mucous membranes.
    Ingestion of 2  to 6 milligrams  causes nausea and vomiting (U.S. Army 1975,
    p.  3-11).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Nitrogen
    Mustards)   Stop exposure and treat symptomatically (Gilman 1985, p.
    1257).  (Non-Specific -- Poisonous Liquid, n.o.s.)  Move victim to fresh
    air; call emergency medical  care.  If not breathing, give artificial
    respiration.  If  breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact
    with material,  immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at
    least 15 minutes.   Speed in  removing material from skin is of extreme
    importance.   Remove and  isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at the
    site.   Keep victim quiet and maintain normal body temperature.  Effects
    may be delayed;  keep victim  under observation (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

                       Ingestion:  Yes (*Rumack 1975 to Present)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   This material  is  highly
    toxic if ingested (Sax 1984, p.  1934).  It is a rapidly acting poison
    (*Gosselin 1976).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   (Non-Specific  --  Thiocyanates)
    Prolonged absorption may  produce various skin eruptions, runny nose, and
    occasionally,  dizziness,  cramps, nausea, vomiting and mild or severe
    disturbances of the nervous  system  (Sax 1984, p. 2568).  (Non-Specific --
    Aliphatic Thiocyanates)   The ingestion of a concentrated solution may lead
    to vomiting.  The principal  systemic reaction is probably one of central
    nervous system depression, interrupted by periods of restlessness,
    abnormally fast and deep  respiratory movements and convulsions.  Death is
    usually due  to respiratory arrest from paralysis of the medullary
    centers.   In nonfatal  cases  injuries to the liver and kidneys may appear
    (Gosselin 1981, p.  111-16).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First  Aid Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Aliphatic
    Thiocyanates)   Because cyanide is probably largely responsible for
    poisonings,  antidotal  measures against cyanide should be instituted
    promptly (Gosselin 1981,  p.  111-16).  (Non-Specific -- Cyanide Solution)
    Move victim  to fresh air; call emergency medical care.  If not breathing,
    give artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  In
    case of contact with material, immediately flush skin or eyes with running
    water for at least 15  minutes.  Speed in removing material from skin is  of
    extreme importance.  Remove  and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes  at
    the site.  Keep victim quiet and maintain normal body temperature.
    Effects may  be delayed, keep victim under observation (DOT 1984,  Guide 55).

    Flammable Limits:
        LEL:   0.9% (*NFPA  1978)
        UEL:   9.5% (*NFPA  1978)

    Extinguishing Methods:  Water gently applied to surface or  foam may
    cause frothing  which  will  extinguish the fire (*NFPA 1978).   If material
    is on fire or  involved  in  fire do not extinguish fire unless flow can be
    stopped.   Use water  in  flooding quantities as fog.  Solid streams of water
    may be ineffective.   Cool  all affected containers with flooding quantities
    of water.   Apply  water  from as far a distance as possible.  Use "alcohol"
    foam, carbon dioxide  or dry chemical.  Use water spray to absorb vapor
    (Student 1981,  p. 503).

    Special Fire Fighting Procedures:  If water gets below the surface of
    the liquid, it  will turn to steam and cause frothing.  Full protective
    clothing,  including self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber gloves,
    boots and bands around  legs, arms, and waist should be provided.  No skin
    surface should  be exposed  (*NFPA 1978).  Move container from fire area if
    you can do it without risk.  Cool containers that are exposed to flames
    with water from the side until well after fire is out.  Dike fire control
    water for later disposal;  do not scatter the material (DOT 1984, Guide 57).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:   When heated to  decomposition  it
    emits very toxic  fumes  of  cyanide and nitrogen oxides (Sax 1984, p.
    2590).   Reacts  violently with amines, alcohol, bases and warm water
    causing fire and  explosion hazards (DASE 1980, p. 907).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Can cause  death.
    Contact with skin may  cause  allergic eczema.  Substance is very corrosive
    to eyes.   Chronic exposure may cause chronic lung disease (*Gosselin 1976,
    Weiss  1980,  p.  871, DASE  1980, p. 907).  As a vapor TDI is a powerful
    irritant to  the respiratory  tract.  Chronic loss of respiratory function
    may occur (*Gosselin 1976).  Acute asthmatic bronchitis or frank asthma
    may occur (*IARC 1972-85).   A splash in the eyes of workmen has caused
    keratitis and conjunctivitis (*Grant 1974).  This compound causes
    inflammation of the skin,  also chemical pneumonitis and pulmonary edema
    (*ACGIH 1980).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Contact with skin  causes  redness  and
    pain.   Contact with eyes  causes  redness, pain and blurred vision.
    Inhalation causes shortness  of breath, coughing, bronchospasm, and labored
    breathing.   Ingestion  causes sore throat,  abdominal pain, nausea,
    vomiting, and diarrhea (*Merck 1983; *Gosselin 1976; *Grant  1974; *ACGIH
    1980;  Weiss  1980, p. 871,  DASE 1980, p. 907).  Neurological  symptoms
    include euphoria, loss of conciousness, headache, difficulty in

    for nylon (Hawley  1981,  p. 1030).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to  be Taken in  Case Material  is Released  or Spilled)

    Shut off ignition  sources; no smoking or flames in hazard area.  Do not
    touch  spilled material;  stop  leak if you can do so without risk.  Use
    water  spray to reduce vapors.  Small spills:  absorb with sand or other
    non-combustible absorbent material and place into containers for later
    disposal.   Small dry spills-  with clean shovel place material into clean,
    dry container and  cover;  move containers from spill area.  Large spills:
    dike far ahead of  spill  for later disposal.  Keep unnecessary people away;
    isolate hazard area and deny  entry.   Stay upwind; keep out of low areas.
    Ventilate closed spaces  before entering them.  Wear positive pressure
    breathing apparatus and special  protective clothing (DOT 1984, Guide 57).
    If material is not on fire and not involved  in fire; keep sparks, flames,
    and other sources  of ignition away.   Keep material out of water sources
    and sewers.  Build dikes  to contain  flow as  necessary; attempt to stop
    leak if without hazard.   Use water spray to  knock down vapors.  If
    material is leaking (not  on fire), downwind  evacuation must be considered
    (Student 1981, p.  503).

    leak if you can do so without  risk.  Use water spray to reduce vapors, do
    not get water inside  container.  Small spills:  flush area with flooding
    amounts of water.  Large spills:  dike far ahead of spill for later
    disposal (DOT 1984, Guide  30).  For small quantities, absorb on paper
    towels.  Evaporate in safe place such as a fume hood.  Allow sufficient
    time for vapors to completely  clear the hood ductwork.  Burn the paper in
    a suitable location away from  combustible materials.  Reclaim and atomize
    large  quantities  in a combustion chamber with an effluent gas cleaning
    device.  Do not allow this gas to enter a confined space such as a sewer
    because of tin.  possibility of  an explosion (*NIOSH/OSHA 1981).

    Inhalation of vapor can cause irritation of eyes  and nose.   High
    concentrations can cause unconsciousness in a few minutes,  with death
    within a few hours.   Contact with liquid formic acid,  isopropyl ester can
    cause irritation of eyes and skin.  Ingestion can result in irritation of
    the mouth and stomach, with  loss of consciousness and death occurring if
    untreated (Clayton and Clayton 1981-82, p. 2265;  Weiss  1980, p. 446).

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First  Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air;  call
    emergency medical care.  If not breathing, give artificial  respiration.
    If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact with  material,
    immediately flush eyes with running water for at  least  15 minutes.  Wash
    skin with soap and water.  Remove and isolate contaminated  clothing and
    shoes at the site (DOT 1984, Guide 27)


SECTION  VI --  USE INFORMATION

    Formic acid,  isopropyl ester, is used as a fumigant and as  a synthetic raw
    material (Clayton and Clayton 1981-82, p. 2265).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Keep unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area and deny  entry. Stay
    upwind;  keep out of low areas.  Wear self-contained (positive pressure if
    available) breathing  apparatus and full protective clothing.  Isolate for
    1/2 mile in all directions if tank car or truck is involved in fire.   Shut
    off ignition sources; no flares, smoking or flames in hazard area.  Stop
    leak if you can do so without risk.  Use water spray to reduce vapors.
    Small spills:   absorb with sand or other noncombustible absorbent material
    and place into containers  for later disposal.  Large spills:  dike  far
    ahead of spill for later disposal (DOT 1984, Guide 27).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   It  is  classified as
    extremely toxic.   Probable oral lethal dose in humans is less than 5  mg/kg
    or a taste (less than  7 drops) for 70 kg (150-lb.)  person ("Gosselin
    1976).  Exposure may result  in respiratory and cardiac failure,  and/or
    hyperalkemia (*Rumack  1975 to Present).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms of  heart  failure occur, with
    marked increase  in serum potassium.  Signs may include confusion,
    vomiting,  coma,  convulsions, and respiratory failure (*Rumack 1975 to
    Present;  Gilman  1985,  p. 738).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Patients with
    frequent  premature ventricular heart beats or who have received  any
    preparation  of digitalis during preceding three weeks are prone  to
    toxicity  (*Gilman 1980).

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Medicine,
    n.o.s.)   Move victim to fresh air, call emergency medical care.   If not
    breathing, give  artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult, give

    Extinguishing  Methods:  (Non-Specific  -- Carbamates)  Extinguish fire
    using  agent suitable  for types of surrounding fire,  as the material itself
    burns  with difficulty.  Use water in flooding quantities as a fog.  Use
    alcohol foam,  carbon  dioxide, or dry chemical (Student 1981, p. 104).

    Special  Fire Fighting  Procedures:  (Non-Specific --  Carbamate
    Pesticide, Solid, n.o.s.)  Move container  from fire  area.  Fight fire from
    maximum distance.  Dike fire control water  for later disposal; do not
    scatter the material.  Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and
    special protective clothing (DOT 1984,  Guide 55).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  When heated to decomposition,  it
    emits  toxic fumes of  nitrogen oxides (Sax  1984,  p.  1145).  (Non-Specific
    -- Carbamate Pesticide, Solid, n.o.s.)   This material may burn but does

                      Ingestion:   Yes (*Rumack 1975 to Present)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   Very toxic; probable
    oral lethal  dose for humans is 50-500 mg/kg or between 1 teaspoon  and  1
    oz.  for a 70 kg  (150 Ib.) person  (*Gosselin 1976).   Dimetilan is highly
    toxic by ingestion and moderately toxic by contact  with the skin (Sax
    1984,  p.  1145).   Death is primarily due to respiratory arrest of central
    origin, paralysis of the respiratory muscles,  intense  bronchoconstriction,
    or all three.  This compound is a cholinesterase inhibitor ("Gosselin
    1976).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms are similar to carbaryl
    poisoning:   nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea,  pinpoint pupils,
    excessive salivation, and sweating are common symptoms.   Running nose  and
    tightness in chest are common in  inhalation exposures.   Difficulty in
    breathing, raspy breathing, and loss of muscle coordination may also be
    seen.   Exposure  may also result in random jerky movements, incontinence,
    convulsions,  and coma and death (*Gosselin 1976).

        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Do not extinguish unless flow can be stopped.
    Use water in flooding quantities as  fog.  Solid streams of water may be
    ineffective.   Use "alcohol" foam, carbon dioxide, or dry chemical (Student
    1981,  p.  207).   Small fires:   dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or
    alcohol foam.  Large  fires:  Water  spray, fog or alcohol foam.  Move
    container from fire area  if you can  do so without risk.  Spray cooling
    water  on containers that  are exposed to flames until well after fire is
    out.   For massive fire  in cargo area, use unmanned hose holder or monitor
    nozzles;  if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn.
    Withdraw immediately  in case of rising sound from venting safety device or
    any discoloration of  tank due  to fire (DOT  1984, Guide 26).

    Special Fire Fighting Procedures:   Cool all containers with flooding
    quantities of water.  Apply water from as far a distance as possible
    (Student 1981, p. 207).   Keep  unnecessary people away; isolate hazard area
    and deny entry.  Stay upwind;  keep  out of low areas.  Wear self-contained
    (positive pressure if available) breathing  apparatus and full protective
    clothing.   Isolate for  1/2 mile in  all directions if tank car or truck is

    If material  is not on fire and not involved in fire, then keep sparks,
    flames,  and  other  sources of ignition away.  Keep material out of water
    sources  and  sewers.  Build dikes to contain flour as necessary.  Attempt to
    stop leak if this  can be done without hazard.  Use water spray to disperse
    vapors,  and  dilute standing pools of liquid.  Avoid breathing vapors.
    Keep upwind.   Wear boots, protective goggles, and gloves.  Do not handle
    broken packages without protective equipment.  Wash away any material
    which may have contacted the body with copious amounts of water or soap
    and water (Student 1981, p. 207).  Shut off ignition sources, no flares,
    smoking  or flames  in hazard area.  Small spills:  absorb with sand or
    other noncombustible absorbent material and place into containers for
    later disposal.  Large spills:  dike far ahead of spill  for later disposal
    (DOT 1984, Guide 26).

    (*Arena 1974).   It is  an indirect cholinesterase inhibitor,  meaning its
    effects are on  the nervous system (Hayes 1982,  p. 394).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms may  include nausea,  vomiting,
    abdominal cramps, diarrhea, excessive salivation, headache,  giddiness,
    weakness, muscle twitching, difficult breathing, blurring  or dimness of
    vision, and loss of muscle coordination.  Death may occur  from failure of
    the respiratory center, paralysis of the respiratory muscles, intense
    bronchoconstriction, or all three (*Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not  Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Organophosphorus
    Pesticide,  Liquid, n.o.s.)  Move victim to fresh air;  call emergency

        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  This compound  is  a  liquid organophosphorus
    insecticide (Buchel 1983, p. 66).  Small fires:   dry  chemical, carbon
    dioxide, water  spray, or  foam.  Large fires:   water spray,  fog or  foam.
    Move container  from fire  area if you can do  so without risk.  Fight fire
    from maximum distance.  Dike fire control water for later disposal; do not
    scatter  the material  (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Special  Fire Fighting  Procedures:  This compound is a liquid
    organophosphorus  insecticide (Buchel 1983, p.  66).  Keep unnecessary
    people away;  isolate  hazard area and deny entry. Stay upwind; keep out of
    low areas.   Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.   Wear positive
    pressure breathing apparatus and special protective clothing.  Remove and
    isolate  contaminated  clothing at the site (DOT 1984,  Guide  55).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  When heated to decomposition,  it
    emits  very toxic  fumes  of oxides of phosphorus and sulfur (Sax 1984, p.
    865).  This compound  is a liquid organophosphorus insecticide (Buchel
    1983,  p. 66).   This material may burn but does not ignite readily.
    Container  may  explode in heat of fire.   Fire may produce irritating or
    poisonous  gases.  Runoff  from fire control water may  give off poisonous
    gases  (DOT 1984,  Guide  55).

                       Ingestion:   Yes (Sax 1984,  p. 865)

    Health Hazards (Acute,  Delayed,  and  Chronic):   It inhibits the nervous
    system and  is absorbed readily through the skin  (Merck 1983,  p. 867).
    This compound is a  liquid organophosphorus insecticide (Buchel 1983, p.
    66).  Poisonous; may be  fatal if inhaled, swallowed  or absorbed through
    skin.   Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes  (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Similar to parathion (Merck 1983, p.
    867).   Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting,  abdominal cramps, diarrhea,
    excessive salivation, headache, giddiness, dizziness,  weakness, muscle
    twitching, difficult breathing, blurring  or dimness  of vision, and  loss of
    muscle coordination.  Death may occur from failure of  the  respiratory
    center, paralysis of the respiratory muscles,  and/or intense
    bronchoconstriction (Gosselin 1984, p. III-340).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD DATA (Continued)

    Emergency and First Aid Procedures:  Similar to treatment  for  other
    organic phosphorus insecticides (Hayes 1982, p. 342).   Move  victim to
    fresh  air; call emergency medical care.  If not breathing, give  artificial
    respiration.   If  breathing is difficult, give oxygen.   In case of contact
    with material,  immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at
    least  15 minutes.  Speed in  removing material from skin is of extreme
    importance.   Remove  and  isolate contaminated clothing and shoes  at the
    site.   Keep victim quiet and maintain normal body temperature.   Effects
    may be delayed; keep victim  under observation (DOT 1984,  Guide 55).

    Extinguishing  Methods:  Triamiphos is  listed  as an organophosphorus
    pesticide (Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983, p.  1622).  This material
    may burn,  but  does not ignite readily.   Extinguish with  dry chemical,
    carbon dioxide, water spray, fog, or foam (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Special  Fire Fighting  Procedures:  As for other organophosphorus
    pesticides, stay upwind; keep out of low areas.  Move containers from fire
    area if you can do it without risk.  Fight fire from maximum distance.
    Dike fire control water for later disposal;  do not scatter the material
    (DOT 1984,  Guide 55).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  As for other organophosphorus
    pesticides, containers may explode in heat of  fire  (DOT  1984, Guide 55).
    Heat may cause decomposition and evolution of  highly toxic fumes of
    nitrogen oxides and phosphorus oxides (Sax 1984, p.  202).

                      Ingestion:  Yes (Sax 1984,  p.  202)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):  Triamiphos is an organic
    phosphorus insecticide  (Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983, p.  1622).
    Organic phosphorus insecticides are absorbed by the skin,  as well as by
    the respiratory  and  gastrointestinal tracts.  It is a  cholinesterase
    inhibitor (Hayes 1982,  p.  301).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Triamiphos  is an organic phosphorus
    insecticide  (Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983,  p.  1622).  Symptoms are
    secondary to cholinesterase  inhibition:  headache,  giddiness, blurred
    vision, nervousness, weakness, nausea, cramps, diarrhea,  and discomfort in
    the chest.   Signs include  sweating, tearing, salivation,  vomiting, bluing
    of the skin,  loss of reflexes, loss of sphincter control,  convulsions, and
    coma (Hayes  1982, p. 302).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  Triamiphos is an organic
    phosphorus insecticide  (Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983, p.  1622).
    Move victim  to fresh air;  call emergency medical care.   If not breathing,
    give artificial  respiration.  If breathing is difficult,  give oxygen.  In
    case of contact  with material, immediately flush skin  or eyes with running
    water for at least 15 minutes.  Speed in removing material from  skin is of
    extreme importance.  Remove  and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at
    the site.  Keep  victim  quiet and maintain normal body  temperature.
    Effects may  be delayed; keep victim under observation  (DOT 1984, Guide 55).


SECTION  VI --  USE INFORMATION

    It is used in the control  of powdery mildew on apples  and ornamentals
    (Buchel 1983, p. 258).  Product discontinued by U.S. supplier (Farm

SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to be Taken in  Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Triamiphos is an organophosphorus pesticide (Encyc Occupat Health and
    Safety 1983,  p.  1622).   Stay upwind; keep out of low areas.  Ventilate
    closed spaces before  entering them.  Wear positive pressure breathing
    apparatus and special protective clothing.  Do not touch spilled material;
    stop leak if  you can  do  so without risk.  Use water spray to reduce
    vapors<  Small spills:   absorb with sand or other non-combustible
    absorbent material and place into containers for later disposal.  Small
    dry spills:   with  clean  shovel place material into clean dry containers
    and cover; move containers from spill area.  Large spills:  dike far ahead
    of spill for  later disposal (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Extinguishing Methods:  Metolcarb is a carbamate insecticide (Buchel
    1983,  p.  131).   Solid carbamate pesticides may burn but  do not  ignite
    readily.   For small fires, use dry chemical,  carbon dioxide, water spray,
    and foam.   For  large fires, use water spray,  fog or foam.  Dike fire
    control  water for  later disposal (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Special Fire Fighting  Procedures:  Procedures for carbamate pesticides,
    solid,  include  the following.  Stay upwind and keep out  of low  areas.
    Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and special protective
    clothing.   Move  container from fire area if you can do it  without risk.
    Fight  fire from  maximum distance.  Dike fire control water for  later
    disposal;  do not scatter the material (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  As  for other solid carbamate
    pesticides,  container may explode in heat of fire.   Fire and runoff from
    fire control water may produce irritating or poisonous gases (DOT 1984,
    Guide  55).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD  DATA

    Routes of Entry:  Inhalation:  Yes (Sax 1984, p.  1823)
                      Skin:  Yes  (Sax 1984, p.  1823)
                      Ingestion:   Yes (Sax 1984, p.  1823)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):  High oral and skin
    toxicity,  and moderate inhalation toxicity (Sax 1984,  p.  1823).
    (Non-Specific -- Carbamates)  Some carbamates appear  to be  carcinogenic,
    teratogenic, and/or mutagenic (Sax 1984, p. 631).   Carbamates  are
    cholinesterase  inhibitors (Hayes 1982, p.  436).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Metolcarb is a carbamate insecticide
    (Buchel 1983, p. 131).  Signs and symptoms of poisoning by  carbamates  are
    similar to those for organic phosphorus compounds (Hayes 1982,  p.  437).
    Symptoms of poisoning by organic phosphorus compounds  include  headache,
    giddiness,  nervousness, blurred vision, weakness,  nausea, cramps,
    diarrhea,  and discomfort in the chest.  Signs include  sweating,  myosis,
    tearing, salivation and other excessive respiratory tract secretion,
    vomiting,  cyanosis, uncontrollable muscle twitches followed by muscular
    weakness,  convulsions, coma, loss of reflexes, and loss of  muscular
    control (Hayes  1982, p. 301).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  Procedures for  carbamate
    pesticides, solid, are as follows.  Move victim to fresh air and call
    emergency care.  If not breathing, give artificial respiration.  If
    breathing is difficult, provide oxygen.  Remove and isolate contaminated
    clothing and shoes at the site.  In case of contact,  immediately flush
    skin or eyes with water for 15 minutes.  Speed in removing  material  from
    skin is of extreme importance.  Keep victim quiet and  maintain normal  body
    temperature.  Carefully observe victim since effects  may be delayed  (DOT
    1984,  Guide 55).

SECTION  VI  --  USE  INFORMATION

    Metolcarb is an insecticide for the control of rice leafhoppers,
    planthoppers,  codling moth, citrus mealybug, onion thrips,  fruit  flies,
    bo11worms and aphids  (Farm Chemicals Handbook 1984, p.  C236).  Not
    registered as  a pesticide in the U.S. (USEPA/Pesticide  Index  1985).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be  Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Avoid  inhalation (see Section V above).   For solid carbamate  pesticides,
    use the following procedures.  Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus
    and special  protective clothing.  For small spills, take  up with  sand or
    other  noncombustible absorbent material and place in containers for  later
    disposal.   For small dry spills, with clean shovel place  material into
    clean, dry container and cover; move container from spill area.   For large
    spills, dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.  Oo not touch spilled
    material.   Use water spray to reduce vapors (DOT 1984,  Guide  55).

    Chronic exposure may cause nerve damage to the  extremities, alter cellular
    composition of the  blood,.and cause structural  changes in blood components
    (''Goodman 1980). There is sufficient evidence  that inorganic arsenic
    compounds are skin  and lung  carcinogens in humans  (*IARC 1972-85).

    Signs and  Symptoms  of Exposure:   Symptoms  usually appear  1/2 to 1 hour
    after ingestion, but may  be  delayed.  Symptoms  include a sweetish,
    metallic taste and  garlicky  odor of breath; difficulty in swallowing;
    abdominal pain;  vomiting  and diarrhea; dehydration; feeble heart beat;
    dizziness and headache; and  eventually coma, sometimes convulsions,
    general paralysis,  and death (*Gosselin 1984).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air and call
    emergency medical care.   Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.   In case
    of contact with material,  immediately flush skin or eyes with running
    water for at  least  15 minutes  ("DOT 1984).  In  case of ingestion, induce
    vomiting; give plenty of  lime water, milk, or raw egg (Weiss 1980, p.  126).


SECTION  VI -- USE INFORMATION

                       Ingestion:   Yes  (Sax 1984, p. 613)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed, and Chronic)-.  The lethal inhalation
    dose of cadmium oxide la  humans is  2,500 ng/m3  for a  1 minute exposure
    (*IARC 1972-1985).   Lethal exposure has been  established  at 50 mg
    (cadmium)/m1  for 1  hour for cadmium oxide  dust  and 1/2 hour for the fume
    (*Casarett 1975).   These  concentrations may be  inhaled without sufficient
    discomfort to warn  worker of exposure  (*Sax 1984, p. 612).  Inhalation may
    cause acute tracheobronchitis,  pneumonitis, and pulmonary edema.  Exposure
    can cause  kidney and lung damage (*Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1981).
    Acute exposure by inhalation may cause death  by anoxia.  The lowest human
    toxic inhalation concentration  is 8630 ug/m3/5 hours for  the fume

SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be Taken  in  Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    If dust  is released  in a hazardous concentration:   (1)  remove all  ignition
    sources; (2) ventilate area of release; and (3) collect  released material
    and place in sealed  containers in secured sanitary landfill (*NIOSH/OSHA
    1981).   (Non-Specific -- Cadmium Compounds)  Keep unnecessary people  away;
    isolate  hazard  area  and deny entry.  Stay upwind,  keep  out of low  areas.
    Wear self-contained  positive pressure breathing apparatus and full
    protective clothing.  If pollution of water occurs,  notify proper
    authorities.  Do not touch spilled material; stop leak  if you can  do  so
    without  risk.   Absorb small spills with sand or other noncombustible
    absorbent material and place into containers for later  disposal.   For
    small  dry spill with clean shovel place material into clean,  dry container
    and cover;  move container from spill area.  Dike large  spills far  ahead
    for later disposal (DOT 1984, Guide 53).

SECTION  III -- FIRE AND  EXPLOSION  HAZARD DATA

    Flash  Point (Method Used):  Not Found
    Flammable Limits:
        LEL:  Not Found
        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Do not use water or foam.  Small fires,  use dry
    chemical,  soda  ash or  lime.  Large  fires, withdraw from area and let burn
    (DOT 1984,  Guide 41).   Do  not use any agent with an acid reaction (i.e.,
    carbon dioxide  or halogenated agents) as phosphine will be liberated
    (*CHRIS 1978).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:   Wear boots, protective gloves, and
    goggles.  Wear  self-contained breathing apparatus when fighting fires
    involving  this  material (Student 1981, p. 541).  Keep unnecessary people
    away;  isolate hazard area  and deny  entry.  Stay upwind; keep out of low
    areas.   Move container  from fire area if you can do so without risk  (DOT
    1984,  Guide 41).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  When  heated to decomposition,  it
    emits  toxic fumes of phosphorus and zinc oxides (Sax 1984, p. 2756).
    Irritating oxides of phosphorus may be formed in fires (*CHRIS 1978).  May
    ignite in  presence of moisture.  Contact with water produces flammable
    gas.   Runoff to  sewer may  create fire or explosion hazard (DOT 1984, Guide
    41).


SECTION  IV --  REACTIVITY DATA

    Stability:   Unstable:
                 Stable:  Yes  (-Farm Chemicals Handbook 1984)

        Conditions to Avoid:   May  ignite  in the presence of moisture, or
        evolve flammable gas  ("DOT 1984).  Stable unless exposed to moisture;
        toxic  phosphine gas may then be released and collected in closed
        spaces  (Sax  1984, p.  2756).

    Incompatibility  (Materials  to Avoid):  Reacts violently with
    concentrated sulfuric acid, nitric  acid, and other oxidizing agents
    (*Merck 1983).   Reacts  with hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid with the
    evolution  of spontaneously flammable phosphine (Merck 1983, p. 1457).

SECTION  IV --  REACTIVITY DATA  (Continued)

    Hazardous Decomposition or  Byproducts:  Decomposed slowly by water
    giving off phosphine,  a flammable poison gas (Student 1981, p. 541).  When
    heated to decomposition, it  emits toxic fumes of oxides of phosphorus  and
    zinc (Sax 1984,  p.  2756).

    Hazardous Polymerization:   May Occur:
                                May Not Occur:  Yes  (Weiss 1980, p. 935)

        Conditions to Avoid:   Not  Found
SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:  Inhalation:  Yes (*Arena 1974)
                      Skin:   Yes  (*DOT  1984)
                      Ingestion:  Yes (*Gosselin 1976)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   This  compound  is very
    caustic when  ingested.  Zinc phosphide reacts with water and acid  in the
    stomach and causes severe  irritation (*Doull 1980).   The probable  oral
    lethal dose is  5-50  mg/kg, or between 7 drops and 1 teaspoonful for a 70
    kg (150 Ib.)  person.   Most patients die after about 30 hours from
    peripheral vascular  collapse secondary to the compound's direct effects.
    Extensive liver damage and kidney damage can also occur.  Ingestion of  4-5
    grams  has produced death in human adults, but also doses of 25 to  50 grams
    have been survived (*Gosselin 1976).   The lowest oral lethal dose  reported
    for women is  80 mg/kg  (*NIOSH/RTECS 1985).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Earliest  symptoms of oral  ingest ion
    include nausea,  abdominal pain, tightness in chest,  excitement, agitation
    and chills.  Early labored breathing, shock, halted urinary output,
    metabolic acidosis,  muscle cramps and convulsions are grave prognostic
    signs  ("Gosselin 1976).  Inhalation of zinc phosphide dust is followed  in
    several hours by vomiting, diarrhea,  bluing of skin,  rapid pulse,  fever
    and shock.  The breath smells of phosphine (*Arena 1974).   The compound is
    very caustic  and may cause closing of the esophagus (*Rumack 1975  to
    Present).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air; call
    emergency medical care.  If not breathing, give artificial respiration.
    If breathing  is difficult, give oxygen.  Remove and isolate contaminated
    clothing and  shoes at  the site.  In case of contact with material,
    immediately flush skin and eyes with running water for at least 15
    minutes.  Keep  victim  quiet and maintain normal body temperature (DOT
    1984,  Guide 41).

SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be  Taken  in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Do not use water.  Keep sparks, flames, and other sources  of ignition
    away.   Keep  material out of water sources and sewers.  Keep material dry.
    Avoid  breathing dusts and fumes from burning material.  Keep upwind.
    Avoid  bodily contact with the material.  Wear boots, protective gloves,
    and goggles.  Do  not handle broken packages without protective equipment.
    Wash away any material which may have contacted the body with copious
    amounts of water  or  soap and water.  If contact with the matter is
    anticipated,  wear full protective clothing.  For a land spill, dig  a pit,
    pond,  lagoon, or  holding area to contain liquid or solid material.   For
    water  spill,  neutralize with agricultural lime (slaked  lime),  crusted
    limestone, or sodium bicarbonate.  Use mechanical dredges  or lifts  to
    remove immobilized wastes of pollutants and precipitates  (Student 1981, p.
    541).   Small dry  spills:  with clean shovel place material  into clean, dry
    container and cover; move containers from spill area.  Large spills:  dike
    spill  for later disposal.  Cover powder spill with plastic  sheet or tarp
    to minimize  spreading.  Clean up only under supervision of  an expert.
    Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and full protective clothing
    (DOT 1984, Guide  41).

                       Ingestion:  Yes (*DOT 1984)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Material  is  considered
    super  toxic;  probable  oral  lethal dose  (human) is less than 5 me/kg,  i.e.,
    a taste (less than  7 drops)  for a 70kg  (150 Ib.) person.   Material causes
    acute  gastrointestinal and  central nervous system symptoms.   Renal and
    hepatic damage have also been  observed  (-''Gosselin 1976).   Chronic exposure
    to material has led to nasal septum perforation, dermatological symptoms
    (lesions,  necrosis, etc.)  and  an increase in the incidence of lung and
    lymphatic cancers  (*Gosselin 1976, "Clayton and Clayton 1981-82,
    *Venugopal 1978, *ACGIH 1981).  Appreciable exposure to respiratory
    irritant promoters  such as  metal oxide  fumes elicits a carcinogenic
    response from arsenic  trioxide ('"'Clayton and Clayton 1981-82).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms of  acute poisoning  may take
    from 1/2 hour to several hours after ingestion to appear.  They may
    include:  sweetish  metallic taste; garlicky odor of breath and feces;
    constriction in throat and  difficulty in swallowing; burning and colicky
    pains  in esophagus, stomach and bowel;  vomiting and profuse painful
    diarrhea (stools are watery initially,  later becoming bloody); dehydration
    with intense thirst and muscular cramps; bluing of skin;  feeble pulse and
    cold extremities; vertigo,  frontal headache, stupor, delirium and mania
    (these symptoms may occur without concurrent or preceding gastric
    symptoms); fainting, coma,  convulsions, general paralysis and then death
    (*Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:   Flush contaminated eyes, hair  and
    skin with copious amounts  of fresh water (^Morgan 1976).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD  DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic): This compound is toxic by
    all routes of  exposure.  The dangerous single oral  dose  of dinitro-o-
    cresol,  a structurally similar compound (-Rumack 1975  to Present), is
    estimated to be about  29 mg/kg (Hayes 1982, p.  469).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms of poisoning are similar to
    other dinitrophenols  (*Rumack 1975 to Present)  and  may include nausea,
    gastric distress, restlessness, sensation of heat,  flushed skin, sweating,
    thirst,  deep and rapid breathing, rapid heart rate,  fever, and lack  of
    oxygen to tissues (blueness of skin) (Hayes 1982, p. 469).

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not  Found

    Emergency and First Aid Procedures:  (Non-Specific --  Dinitro-o-
    Cresol)   Move  victim  to  fresh air; call emergency medical care.  Remove
    and isolate contaminated shoes and clothing at the  site.  In case of
    contact with material, immediately flush skin or eyes  with running water
    for at least 15 minutes  (DOT 1984, Guide 53).


SECTION  VI -- USE INFORMATION

    This compound  is a herbicide (Farm Chemicals Handbook  1984,  p. C82)  and a
    rodenticide (*Tsubura  and Kato 1974).


SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Avoid inhalation (see  Section V above).  (Non-Specific --
    Dinitro-o-Cresol)  Do not touch spilled material; stop source of spill or
    leak if it can be done without risk.  Take up small spills with sand or
    other noncombustible  absorbent material and place into containers for
    later disposal.  Shovel  small dry material into clean,  dry container and
    cover.  Remove from  spill area for later removal.   Dike  far  ahead of spill
    for later disposal (DOT  1984, Guide 53).

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   (Non-Specific -- Drugs,
    n.o.s.)  May be fatal  if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed  through  skin.
    Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes.   Fire may produce  irritating or
    poisonous gases.  Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause
    pollution (DOT 1984, Guide 11).  The average adult man tolerates a single
    dose of 1.5 gm without ill effects (Gosselin 1984, p.  11-388).

    Signs 'and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Untoward reactions include nausea,
    vomiting, headache, weakness, and (as seen in dogs) muscle tremors and
    convulsions (Gosselin  1984, p. 11-388).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not  Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific --  Drugs, n.o.s.)
    Move victim to fresh air; call emergency medical care.   If not breathing,
    give artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult,  give oxygen.  In
    case of contact with material, immediately flush skin  or eyes with running
    water for at least 15  minutes.  Remove and isolate contaminated  clothing
    and shoes at the site.  Keep victim quiet  and maintain normal body
    temperature (DOT 1984, Guide 11).


SECTION  VI -- USE INFORMATION

    Used against filariasis in man and animals.  Especially  popular  in
    veterinary medicine  (Gosselin 1984, p. 11-388).


SECTION  VII --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

                                  p. C172)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Can cause  death due to
    severe injury to the lungs  (Sax  1984, p. 2117).  The lowest lethal oral
    dose reported in humans  is  43 rag/kg  (NIOSH/RTECS 1983, p.  719).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Death may occur in 24  hours or less
    due to pulmonary or cerebral hemorrhage, or due to kidney, liver,  or  heart
    failure.   Severe skin  irritation, blistering and peeling,  occur  especially
    with repeated applications.  Inhalation of sprays causes nose bleeds,
    headache,  coughing, and  sore throat.  Ingestion causes burning discomfort
    or pain in mouth,  pharynx,  esophagus and abdomen (substernal or
    epigastric);  prompt and  repeated vomiting with blood; diarrhea with bloody
    stools; headache.   When  smaller  amounts or dilute solutions are  consumed,
    sore throat  and difficulty  in swallowing within 24 hours;  excoriated  lips;
    ulcers of  the tongue,  buccal mucosa  and pharynx have been reported
    (Gosselin  1984,  p.  III-332).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  For skin and eye irritation flush
    with water immediately;  administer  artificial respiration if necessary
    (NIOSH/OSHA  1978,  p.  147).  This material is a bipyridilium compound
    (Buchel 1983, p. 376)  with  the following procedures.  If breathing is
    difficult,  give oxygen.  Remove  contaminated clothing at site.  Keep
    victim quiet and maintain normal body temperature.  Keep victim  under

SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be Taken  in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    (Non-Specific -- Bipyridilium Pesticide)  Keep unnecessary  people away;
    isolate hazard  area and deny entry.  Stay upwind;  keep out  of  low areas.
    Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.   Wear  positive pressure
    breathing apparatus and special protective clothing.  Remove and isolate
    contaminated clothing at the site.  If water pollution occurs, notify
    appropriate authorities.  Do not touch spilled material;  stop  leak if you
    can do*so without risk.  Use water spray to reduce vapors.  Small spills:
    absorb with sand or other noncombustible absorbent material and place into
    containers for  later disposal.  Small dry spills:  with clean  shovel place
    material into clean, dry container and cover;  move containers  from spill
    area.   Large spills:  dike far ahead of spill for  later disposal (DOT

SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to be Taken  in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    (Non-Specific -- Pesticide, Solid, n.o.s.)   Keep  unnecessary  people  away;
    isolate hazard  area  and deny entry.  Stay upwind; keep out  of low areas.
    Wear self-contained  (positive pressure if available)  breathing apparatus
    and full protective  clothing.  Do not touch spilled material;  stop leak if
    you can do so without risk.  Small spills:   absorb with sand  or other
    noncombustible  absorbent material and place into  containers for later
    disposal.  Small dry spills:  with clean shovel place material into  clean,
    dry container and cover; move containers from spill area.   Large spills:
    dike far ahead  of spill for later disposal  (DOT 1984, Guide 53).

                      Ingestion:  Yes (-Farm Chemicals Handbook 1983)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):  This material may be
    fatal  if swallowed.   It is poisonous if inhaled and extremely hazardous  by
    skin contact.   Repeated exposure may, without symptoms, be increasingly
    hazardous ('"Farm Chemicals Handbook 1983).  The estimated fatal oral  dose
    is 0.3 grams  for a 150 Ib. (70 kg) person (-Arena 1979).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms may  include nausea, vomiting,
    abdominal cramps, diarrhea,  excessive salivation, headache,  giddiness,
    dizziness, weakness,  muscle  twitching, difficult  breathing,  blurring  or
    dimness of vision, and loss  of muscle coordination.  Death may occur  from
    failure of the  respiratory center, paralysis of the respiratory muscles,
    intense bronchoconstriction, or all three (*Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Organophosphorus
    Pesticide, n.o.s.)   Move victim to fresh air; call emergency medical
    care.   If not breathing, give artificial respiration.   If breathing is
    difficult, give oxygen.  In  case of contact with  material, immediately
    flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.   Speed in
    removing material from skin  is of extreme importance.   Remove and  isolate
    contaminated  clothing and  shoes at the site.    Keep victim quiet  and
    maintain normal body temperature.  Effects may be delayed; keep victim
    under observation (DOT 1984, Guide 55).  If material has been ingested,
    induce vomiting with ipecac  (*Morgan 1982).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Similar to  cadmium;
    acute toxicity most notably  occurs secondary to cadmium ingestion or
    inhalation of cadmium  fumes.   Poisoning from inhalation is  relatively rare
    but dangerous, having  a mortality rate of about 15 percent  ("Rumack 1975
    to Present).   Toxic inhaled  concentrations in humans have been reported at
    147 mg/m3/35  minutes and  at  1800 yg/m3/2 years (*NIOSH/RTECS 1985).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Similar to  cadmium;  acute poisoning
    produces  severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal and chest
    pains. Dry mouth,  salivation, and metallic taste have been reported.
    Yellow rings  may be seen  in  teeth when chronically exposed  (*Rumack 1975
    to Present).   If ingested, may result in exhaustion, collapse, shock, and
    death within  a period  of  24  hours (Gosselin 1984, p. 111-82).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Cadmium
    Compound)   Move victim to fresh air.  Remove and isolate contaminated
    clothing.   In case  of  contact  with material,  immediately flush skin and
    eyes with  running water for  at least 15 minutes (DOT 1984,  Guide 53).

                       Skin:   Yes  (Non-Specific  -- Alkyl Mercury Compounds)
                              (Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983, p. 1337)
                       Ingestion:  Yes (Non-Specific -- Ethylmercuric
                                  Compounds)  (Hayes 1982, p. 22)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   (Non-Specific -- Alkyl
    Mercury Compound)   This compound is a nervous system toxicant on either
    acute  or chronic exposure.   It is especially hazardous because of its
    persistence in the body and  its transport  to the brain (Gosselin 1984, p.
    11-136, III-267).   Skin contact with concentrated solutions results in
    irritation and blistering.   Organic mercury compounds have caused fetal
    poisonings in pregnant women.  Poisoning outbreaks have occurred from
    ingestion of grain treated with ethyl mercury or eating animals fed
    treated grain (Hayes  1982, p. 21-23).  A lowest lethal oral dose of 8805
    Vg/kg  for 13 weeks was reported (NIOSH/RTECS 1983, Volume 2,
    p.  663).

    Signs  and  Symptoms of Exposure:   (Non-Specific  -- Alkyl Mercury
    Compound)  Signs and  symptoms are due to the accumulation of mercury in
    the central nervous system and appear with a latency period that may vary
    from one to several weeks  (Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983, p. 1337).
    The victim may complain of headache, prickling and abnormal sensations of
    the tongue, lips,  fingers  and toes, and other non-specific dysfunctions.
    More severe poisonings lead  to symptoms  including tremors of the hands,
    loss of side vision,  and slight loss of coordination (especially
    noticeable in speech,  writing and gait).   Irritability and bad temper are
    frequently present and may progress to mania.  Mental retardation is a
    symptom,  especially in children (Hayes 1982, p. 21).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First  Aid  Procedures:  This compound is an alkylmercury
    fungicide (Buchel  1983, p. 249).  Move victim to fresh air; call emergency
    medical care.   If  not  breathing, give artificial respiration.  If
    breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact with material,
    immediately flush  skin or  eyes with running water for at least 15
    minutes.   Speed in removing  material from  skin is of extreme importance.
    Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at site.  Keep victim
    quiet  and maintain normal  body temperature.  Effects may be delayed; keep
    victim under observation (DOT 1984, Guide  55).

    discontinued by manufacturer (Farm Chemicals Handbook 1984,  p.  C-97).  Not
    registered as a pesticide in the U.S. (USEPA/Pesticide Index 1985).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to be  Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    This compound is an  alkylmercury fungicide (Buchel 1983,  p.  249).  Keep
    unnecessary  people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry.   Stay upwind;
    keep out  of  low areas.  Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.
    Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and special protective
    clothing.  Remove and isolate contaminated clothing at the  site.  Do not
    touch spilled material; stop leak if you can do so without  risk.  Use
    water spray  to reduce vapors.  Small spills:  absorb with sand or other
    noncombustible absorbent material and place into containers  for later
    disposal.    Small dry spills:  with clean shovel place material into
    clean, dry container and cover; move containers from spill  area.  Large
    spills:  dike far ahead of spill for later disposal (DOT  1984,  Guide 55).

    positive  pressure breathing apparatus and special protective clothing.  Do
    not touch spilled material; stop leak if you can do it without risk.  Use
    water spray to reduce vapors. Small spills:  take up with sand or other
    noncombustible absorbent material and place into containers for later
    disposal.  Small dry spills:  with  clean shovel place material into clean,
    dry container and cover; move containers from spill area.   Large spills:
    dike  far  ahead of spill for later disposal (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

                      Ingestion:   Yes (*Rumack 1975  to Present)

    Health Hazards (Acute,  Delayed,  and Chronic):  Formothion is one of the
    least  toxic systemic organophosphates  (*Agrochem  Dept. of  Info. Service
    1971).  Formothion is a compound of low to moderate toxicity  (Hayes 1982,
    p.  369).   It causes the depression of  cholinesterase  (Hayes  1982, p. 370)
    leading to accumulation of acetylcholine in the nervous  system, which is
    believed to be  responsible for the symptoms (Doull  1980, p.  367).

    Signs  and Symptoms of Exposure:  Early symptoms of poisoning include:
    headache,  dizziness, weakness, perspiring,  nausea, vomiting,  and sensation
    of  tightness in chest (*Agrochem Dept.  of Info. Service  1971).  Chronic
    low doses  may produce symptoms similar to influenza.   Acute  exposure
    causes psychotic behavior, uncoordination,  unconsciousness,  convulsions,
    abdominal  pain,  diarrhea, labored breathing, blurred  vision,  and profound
    weakness (-Rumack 1975 to Present).

    Extinguishing  Methods:   (Non-Specific -- Carbamates)   Extinguish fire
    using  agent suitable  for  the surrounding fire, as the  material itself
    burns  with difficulty.  Use water in flooding quantities as a fog.  Use
    alcohol foam,  carbon  dioxide, or dry chemical (Student 1981, p.  104).

    (Non-Specific  -- Carbamate Pesticide, Solid, n.o.s.)  This material may
    burn,  but does not  ignite readily.  For small fires, use dry chemical,
    carbon dioxide, water spray, or foam.  For large fires, use water spray,
    fog, or foam (DOT  1984, Guide 55).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Carbamate
    Pesticide, Solid, n.o.s.)  Stay upwind; keep out of low areas.  Move
    container from  fire area  if you can do it without risk.  Fight fire from
    maximum distance.  Dike fire control water for later disposal; do not
    scatter the material.  Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and
    special protective clothing (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:   (Non-Specific -- Carbamate

    cause death or permanent injury after very short exposure to small
    quantities (*Sax 1975).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:  The  symptoms are similar to
    parathion.   Nausea is  often  the first symptom followed by vomiting,
    abdominal cramps,  diarrhea and excessive salivation.   Also common in
    inhalation exposure  are headache, giddiness, vertigo  and weakness, nasal
    discharge and a sensation  of tightness in the chest.   Other symptoms
    include blurring or  dimness  of vision; tearing; eye muscle spasm and pain;
    pinpoint pupils; loss  of muscle coordination; slurring of speech; muscle
    twitching (especially  tongue and eyelids); difficulty in breathing;
    excessive secretions of mucous in mouth, nose, and respiratory tract;
    convulsions and coma (-Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific  -- Organophosphorus

    It is  a non-systemic  insecticide with good ovicidal properties  and  long
    persistence.   It  is not registered for use in the U.S.  (*SRI).   Among
    other  crops,  it is used on cotton, citrus, vegetables,  potatoes,  tobacco,
    rice,  and cereals (*Worthing 1979) to control caterpillars,  beetles,
    aphids, spiders and many other insects (*Farm Chemicals Handbook 1981).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to  be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    (Non-Specific --  Organophosphorus Pesticide, n.o.s.)  Stay upwind;  keep
    out of low areas.  Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.  Wear
    positive pressure breathing apparatus and special protective clothing.  Do
    not touch spilled material; stop leak if you can do so without  risk.  Use
    water  spray  to reduce vapors.  Small spills:  absorb with sand  or other
    noncombustible absorbent material and place into containers for later
    disposal.  Small  dry  spills:  with clean shovel place material  into clean
    dry containers and cover; move containers from spill area.   Large spills:
    dike far ahead of spill for later disposal (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD  DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute,  Delayed,  and Chronic):   (Non-Specific -- Organic
    Phosphorus Insecticides)  Organic phosphorus insecticides are absorbed by
    the skin,  as well as by the respiratory and gastrointestinal tracts.  It
    is a cholinesterase  inhibitor (Hayes  1982,  p.  301).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  (Non-Specific -- Organic Phosphorus
    Insecticides)   Symptoms are headache,  giddiness, blurred vision,
    nervousness, weakness, nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and discomfort in the
    chest.  Signs include sweating, tearing,  salivation, vomiting, bluing of
    the skin,  convulsions, coma,  loss of  reflexes  and loss of sphincter
    control (Hayes  1982, p. 302).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated  by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:   (Non-Specific -- Organophosphorus
    Pesticide) Move victim to fresh air;  call  emergency medical care.  If not
    breathing, give artificial respiration.  If breathing  is difficult, give
    oxygen.  In case of  contact with material,  immediately flush skin or eyes
    with running water for at least 15 minutes.  Speed in  removing material
    from skin is of extreme importance.  Remove and  isolate contaminated
    clothing and shoes at the site.  Keep victim quiet and maintain normal
    body temperature.  Effects may be delayed;  keep  victim under observation
    (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):  This  material is
    poisonous to humans  (Hayes  1982, p. 365).  Its toxic effects  are most
    likely related to action on the nervous system (Clayton and Clayton  1982,
    p. 11-291).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms  include  headache, dizziness,
    nausea, salivation,  vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, chest pain,
    blurred vision,  muscle twitching, and weakness.  Exposure may cause
    psychotic behavior,  loss of coordination, unconsciousness, and  rarely,
    convulsions  (*Rumack 1975 to Present).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency  and  First Aid Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Organophosphorus
    Pesticide, n.o.s.)   Move victim to fresh air; call  emergency  medical
    care.   If not breathing, give artificial respiration.  If breathing  is
    difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact with material, immediately

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:  Inhalation:   Yes (Sax 1984,  p.  2214)
                      Skin:  Yes (Sax 1984, p.  2214)
                      Ingestion:   Yes (Sax 1984,  p.  2214)

    Health Hazards (Acute,  Delayed,  and Chronic):  Highly toxic by oral  or
    skin exposure  (Sax 1984, p. 2214).  Its effects  are probably due to action
    on tho. nervous system (Doull 1980, p.  371).   This compound may cause death
    through respiratory  arrest (*Gosselin 1976).

    Signs and Symptoms of  Exposure:  Symptoms are similar to  those of
    parathion.  Common symptoms upon inhalation  include:  nausea, vomiting,
    abdominal cramps, diarrhea, excessive salivation, headaches, dizziness,
    weakness, runny nose, and sensation of tightness  in chest.  Other symptoms
    include:   loss of muscle coordination, slurring  of speech, mental
    confusion,  and disorientation.   Further exposure  symptoms include
    convulsions, loss of bladder control,  random jerky movements, and coma
    (*Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:   (Non-Specific  -- Organophosphorus
    Pesticide,  Liquid, n.o.s.)  Move victim to fresh air; call emergency
    medical care.  If not breathing, give artificial  respiration.  If
    breathing is difficult,  give oxygen.   Remove and isolate contaminated
    clothing  and shoes at the site.   In case of  contact with material,
    immediately flush skin or eyes  with running  water for at least 15
    minutes.   Speed  in removing material from skin is of  extreme importance.
    Keep victim quiet and maintain  normal body temperature.  Effects may be
    delayed;  keep victim under observation (DOT  1984, Guide 55).

SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be Taken  in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    (Non-Specific -- Organophosphorus Pesticides)   Keep  material out of water
    courses  and  sewer.  Build dikes to contain flow as necessary.  Use water
    spray  to knock  down vapor.  Do not touch spilled material.  Wear
    self-contained  breathing apparatus and protective clothing  (Student 1981,
    p. 384).

    (Non-Specific -- Organophosphorus Pesticide,  Liquid,  n.o.s.)  Keep
    unnecessary  people away; isolate hazard area and deny entry.  Stay upwind;
    keep out of  low areas.  Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.
    Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and special protective
    clothing.  Remove and isolate contaminated clothing  at the  site.  Do not
    touch  spilled material; stop leak if you can do so without  risk.  Use
    water  spray  to  reduce vapors.  Small spills:   absorb with sand or other
    noncombustible  absorbent material and place into containers for later
    disposal.  Large spills:  dike far ahead of spill for later disposal (DOT
    1984,  Guide  55).

                      Ingestion:   Yes (Sax 1984,  p.  749)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):  Chlorophacinone is
    highly toxic orally  and by skin absorption (Sax 1984,  p.  749).  The
    probable oral lethal dose for humans is less than 5  mg/kg to 50 mg/kg, or
    between a taste  (less  than 7 drops) and 1 teaspoonful  for a 150 Ib. (70
    kg) person (Gosselin 1984, p. 11-1335).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms are similar to those  of
    warfarin (Gosselin 1984, p. 11-1335).  Symptoms develop after  a few days
    or a few weeks of repeated ingestion and include nosebleed and bleeding
    gums;  pallor and sometimes a rash; massive bruises,  especially of the
    elbows, knees, and buttocks; blood in urine and feces;  occasionally
    paralysis from cerebral hemorrhage; and hemorrhagic  shock and  death
    (Gosselin 1984,  p. III-396).  (Non-Specific -- Coumarin Derivative
    Pesticide,  Solid, n.o.s.)  Contact may cause burns to  skin and eyes (DOT

    Corrosive Alkali)  Acute circulatory shock;  burns  in  mouth,  throat,  and
    esophagus;  suffocation due to glottal  or laryngeal swelling; perforation
    and inflammation of  the esophagus and  the tracheobronchial  tree;
    aspiration pneumonia.  Delayed stricture (scar)  formation causing problems
    with swallowing, and stomach filling and emptying; strong alkalis are
    markedly corrosive and penetrating to  skin and mucous membranes  (Gosselin
    1984,  p.  III-245).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  This material  is a corrosive alkali
    (*Rumack 1975  to Present)  By ingestion, visible burns  in mouth, drooling,
    gagging,  vomiting, chest and upper abdominal pain, difficulty in breathing
    or apnea (respiratory arrest), collapse and cardiac arrest  may occur
    (Gosselin 1984, p. III-245).

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not  Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:   For oral  ingest ion,  dilute
    immediately with milk or water.  Avoid vomiting.  For inhalation exposure,
    establish respiration and administer oxygen.  For  skin  or eye exposure,
    irrigate copiously with water for at least 15 minutes (*Rumack  1975  to

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed, and Chronic):  Thallium  is a digestive
    tract  irritant  and  nervous system toxicant (Doull 1980, p.  457).   It is
    classified as extremely toxic.  Probable oral lethal dose (humans)  is 5-50
    mg/kg, or between 7 drops and  1 teaspoon for 70 kg person (150  Ib.)
    (*Gosselin 1976).   Teratogenic  effects are noted after chronic
    intoxication (*Venugopal 1978).

    Signs  and Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms  appear within 12-24 hours
    after  a single  toxic dose or after several weeks of small daily doses.   In
    acute  poisoning dominant symptoms include severe stomach cramps,  vomiting
    and diarrhea.   In severe cases  nervous system damage may be indicated by
    tremors,  delirium,  convulsions, paralysis, and coma culminating in  death.
    Symptoms  of  subacute poisonings include stomach cramps, nausea, vomiting,
    diarrhea, leg pains, tremors,  and tingling sensations in the  hands  and
    feet.   Damage to nervous system may be permanent ("Gosselin 1976).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Thallium Salts,
    n.o.s.)  Move victim to fresh  air; call emergency medical care.  Remove
    and isolate  contamiated clothing and shoes at the site.  In case of
    contact with material, immediately flush skin or eyes with running water
    for at least 15 minutes (DOT 1984, Guide 53).


SECTION  VI  --  USE INFORMATION

    Used in the  manufacture of imitation diamonds (""Merck 1976).  Also  used  in
    analysis  to  test for carbon disulfide (*Hawley 1977).  Used as  a fungicide
    (*Venugopal  1978).


SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to  be  Taken  in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Ventilate area  of spill.  For  small quantities, sweep onto paper or  other
    suitable  material,  place in sealed container for disposal.  Large
    quantities may  be reclaimed.   If this is not practical, collect in  most
    convenient and  safe manner and  deposit in sealed containers.  For liquids
    absorb in vermiculite, dry sand, earth or similar material and  place in
    sealed containers for disposal  (*NIOSH/OSHA  1981).   (Thallium Compound,
    n.o.s.)  Wear self-contained (positive pressure if available) breathing
    apparatus and full  protective  clothing (DOT  1984, Guide 53).

                       Ingestion:  Yes  (Hayes 1982,  p. 360)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed, and Chronic):   Monocrotophos  is  an
    organophosphorus pesticide.  It  is  a  cholinesterase inhibitor and acts on
    the nervous system (Hayes  1982,  p.  360).  Extremely toxic; probable oral
    lethal dose to humans  5-50 mg/kg or between 7 drops and 1 teaspoon for a
    70 kg (150 Ib.)  person (-'Gosselin  1984).  Repeated inhalation or skin
    contact with this material may,  without symptoms, progressively increase
    susceptibility to poisoning  (*Farm  Chemicals Handbook  1984).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms  are similar  to  parathion
    poisoning:   nausea, vomiting,  abdominal cramps, diarrhea, excessive
    salivation, headache,  giddiness, vertigo and weakness.  Rhinorrhea and
    sensation of tightness in  chest  are common after  inhalation exposure.
    Random jerky movements,  incontinence, convulsions and  coma may also be
    observed.   Death occurs  primarily due to respiratory arrest (*Gosselin

SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to  be Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Wear clean rubber gloves, waterproof clothing, and goggles when dealing
    with product.   Replace gloves frequently and destroy used gloves (*Farm
    Chemicals  Handbook  1984).  As with other organophosphorus pesticides
    ("Morgan 1982), do  not touch spilled material; stop leak if you can do it
    without risk.   Use  water spray to reduce vapors.  Small spills:   take up
    with sand  or other  noncombustible absorbent material and place into
    containers for later disposal.  Small dry spills:  with clean  shovel place
    material into clean,  dry container and cover; move containers  from spill
    area.   Large spills:   dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.  Keep
    unnecessary people  away; isolate hazard area and deny entry.   Stay upwind;
    keep out of low areas.   Ventilate closed spaces before entering them.
    Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and special protective
    clothing.   Remove and isolate contaminated clothing at the site (DOT  1984,

    Extinguishing Methods:  Flood with water, dry chemical, graphite or dry
    earth  (Student  1981, p.  363).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  Keep unnecessary people away;
    isolate hazard  area  and deny  entry.  Stay upwind; keep out of low areas.
    Wear self-contained  (positive pressure if available) breathing apparatus
    and full protective  clothing.  Move container from fire area if you can do
    it without risk.   Cool containers  that are exposed to flames with water
    from the side until  well after fire is out.  For massive fire in cargo
    area,  use unmanned hose holder or  monitor nozzles; if this is impossible,
    withdraw from area and let  fire burn (DOT 1984, Guide 53).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   Numerous cases of
    dermatitis have  been  reported  (*Clayton and Clayton 1981-82).
    Epidemiological  studies conclusively demonstrate an excess risk  of  cancer
    of the nasal  cavity and lungs  in workers in nickel refineries.   It  is
    likely that nickel, in some  forms, is carcinogenic to man  (*IARC 1972-85).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms include nausea, vomiting,
    diarrhea,  central  nervous  system depression (Weiss 1980, p.  1105),
    coughing,  shortness of breath, chest pain, fever and weakness  upon
    inhalation (*Rumack 1975 to  Present).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First  Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air; call
    emergency medical  care.  In  case of contact with material  immediately
    flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.   Remove  and
    isolate contaminated  clothing  and shoes at the site (DOT 1984, Guide 32).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD  DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):  Cobalt is considered a
    slightly toxic  agent which causes readily reversible changes at the end of
    exposure (*Sax  1975).  Respiratory effects have been observed.  Skin and
    eye lesions  similar to contact dermatitis have been reported.  High
    chronic ingestion causes goiter, an increase in red blood cell count, and
    enlarged heart  (Doull  1980, p. 442-443).  Exposure to cobalt powder caused
    respiratory  disease, gastric disturbances, and blood in  the urine
    (*Friberg 1979; * Browning 1969).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms include cough,  wheezing,
    shortness of breath  (*Friberg 1979), vomiting, diarrhea, a sensation of
    warmth (Doull 1980, p. 442-443), measle-like red spots on the skin
    (*Browning 1969) and allergic dermatitis (*ACGIH 1980).

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Those with skin
    diseases are at a greater risk (*Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1971).

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  Treat as for general poisoning.
    Establish respiration  and create artificial airway, if necessary.  Flush
    skin or eyes with running water.  Wash skin with soap and water (*Rumack
    1975 to Present).

                       Ingestion:  Yes  (*Sax 1975)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):  It may cause  death  or
    permanent injury after very  short exposure to small quantities (*Sax
    1975).  1,000 ppm causes death in from 10 minutes to several hours  by
    respiratory depression (*Thienes 1972).  It is an eye and respiratory
    tract  irritant (*Grant 1974; Gosselin 1976).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms  include coughing, fatigue,
    nausea,  choking, headache, abdominal pain, tightness and burning sensation
    in the chest, rapid and shallow respiration, bluing of the skin, anxiety,
    mental confusion,  pulmonary  edema and death (Gosselin 1984, p. III-323).
    Contact  with liquid sulfur dioxide  may cause  frostbite (-DOT 1984).

    Medical  Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Persons with
    asthma,  subnormal pulmonary  functions or cardiovascular disease are at a
    greater  risk ("OSHA 1977 Public hearing on occupational standard for
    sulfur dioxide (PB83-182485); *Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1971).

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air; call
    emergency medical care.  If  not breathing give artificial respiration.  If
    breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  Remove and isolate contaminated
    clothing and shoes  at  the  site.  In case of contact with the material,
    immediately flush skin or  eyes with running water for at least 15

    breathing  apparatus and special protective clothing (DOT  1984, Guide 39).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:   Fire risk in contact with organic
    materials.   An explosive increase in vapor pressure occurs  when the alpha
    form melts (Hawley 1981, p, 983).  Combines with water with explosive
    violence,  forming sulfuric acid (Merck 1983,  p. 1289).  May ignite other
    combustible materials  (wood, paper, oil, etc.). Flammable  poisonous
    gases  may  accumulate in tanks and hopper cars.  Runoff to sewer may create
    fire or explosion hazard (DOT 1984, Guide 39).

    Flash  Point (Method Used):  Not Found
    Flammable Limits:
        LEL:  Not Found
        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing  Methods:  (Non-Specific -- Thallium Salts, n.o.s.)  If
    material is involved in  fire, extinguish fire using agent suitable for
    type of  surrounding fire  (material itself does not burn).   Use water  in
    flooding quantities as  fog.  Use foam, carbon dioxide  or dry chemical
    (Student 1981, p. 497).  For small fires use dry chemical,  carbon dioxide,
    water  spray, or  foam.   For  large fires use water spray, fog, or foam.
    Move container  from fire area if you can do so without risk (DOT  1984,
    Guide  53).

    Special  Fire Fighting  Procedures:  (Non-Specific -- Thallium Salts,
    n.o.s.)  For personnel  protection avoid breathing dusts, and fumes from
    burning  material.  Keep  upwind.  Avoid bodily contact  with  the material.
    Wear boots,  protective  gloves, and goggles.   Do not handle  broken packages
    without  protective equipment.  Wash away any material  which may have
    contacted  the  body with  copious amounts of water or soap and water.  Wear
    self-contained breathing apparatus when fighting fires involving  this
    material.   If  contact with  the material is anticipated, wear full
    protective clothing (Student 1981, p. 497).   Keep unnecessary  people  away;
    isolate  hazard area and  deny entry.  Stay upwind; keep out  of  low areas
    (DOT 1984,  Guide 53).

    Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards:  When heated to decomposition,  it
    emits  very toxic fumes  of thallium and sulfur oxide (Sax 1984, p. 2557).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):  Rated as extremely
    toxic.  The probable oral lethal dose in humans is  5  to 50 mg/kg, or
    between 7 drops  and  1  teaspoon for a 150-pound person (Gosselin  1984, p.
    11-139).   The  mean lethal dose in an adult is  probably  about  1 gm of
    thallium sulfate (Gosselin 1984, p. Ill 380).   Chronic  exposure  causes
    hair loss starting 10  days after exposure and  complete  baldness  in about a
    month (Clayton and Clayton 1981-82, p.  1922).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Can cause death due to shock.
    Dominant effects include severe abdominal pain, vomiting and  diarrhea.
    Blood in vomitus and stools are often seen.   In severe  cases, tremors,
    delirium, convulsions, paralysis, coma and even death may occur  (Gosselin
    1984,  p.  III-381).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated  by Exposure:   Not Found

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:   Inhalation:  Yes  (-Sax 1979)
                       Skin:   Yes  (*Sax 1979)
                       Ingestion:  Yes  (*Rumack 1975 to Present)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   This compound  is  a
    highly corrosive,  acute  irritant to  the skin, eyes, mucous membranes and
    the respiratory  tract.   It  is  capable of causing death or permanent injury
    due to exposures encountered in normal use  ("Sax 1979).  Even short
    contact may lead to eye  inflammation which may result in corneal opacities
    (Encyc Occupat Health  and  Safety 1983, p. 2180).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:   Inhalation  symptoms  include congestion
    and irritation of upper  respiratory  tract ('"'Browning 1969), coughing,
    burning of the throat, headache and  weakness.  Prolonged exposure to low
    concentrations may cause cough and  pneumonia (*Rumack 1975 to Present).
    Ingestion causes mouth,  throat and  GI tract irritation, nausea,  vomiting,
    cramps and diarrhea (Weiss  1980, p.  869).  Corneal damage has been
    observed in individuals  exposed to  fumes ("Grant 1974).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air and call
    emergency medical care.  Remove and  isolate contaminated clothing and
    shoes  at the site.  Speed  in removing material from skin is of extreme
    importance.  In  case of  contact, immediately flush skin or eyes with
    running water for at least  15  minutes.  Keep victim quiet and maintain
    normal body temperature  ("DOT  1984).  If skin is exposed, however,  wipe
    off with dry cloth before  applying water (*Rumack 1975 to Present).

    Ventilate closed spaces before entering ("'DOT 1984).   In  case of
    emergency, keep unnecessary people away and isolate hazard area.   Stay
    upwind and keep out of low areas.  If there is a small spill or  leak
    isolate 30 feet in all directions.  In case of a large spill isolate  60
    feet in all directions, then evacuate in a downwind direction an  area 0.2
    miles wide and  0.2 miles  long ("DOT 1984).  Workers exposed to titanium
    chloride should be supplied with respiratory and skin protection  (*Encyc
    Occupat Health  and Safety 1971) including goggles and face shield,  air
    supplied mask or approved canister, rubber gloves, and protective clothing
    (*CHRIS 1978).  Workers should receive periodic medical exam at  least
    annually and those manifesting signs of persistent injury to upper
    respiratory tract should  be transferred to other work (*Encyc Occupat
    Health and Safety 1971).

        LEL:   Not Found
        UEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Do not use water, carbon dioxide, dry chemical,
    or halogenated  extinguishing  agents such  as carbon tetrachloride (*NFPA
    1978).   Use dry  graphite;  or  ground dolomite-based dry chemical
    extinguishers such as  "Lith-X"  (*NFPA  1978, *Clayton and Clayton 1981-2).
    Fires may be smothered by  inverting a  can over them (*NFPA 1984).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  Wear protective goggles or face
    shield,  rubberized gloves,  flame-proof outer clothing, respirator, and
    high boots or shoes  (*CHRIS 1978).  Large fires:  withdraw from area and
    let fire burn,  as  lithium  hydride  may  continue to re-ignite (*DOT 1984).
    A fire,  once started,  cannot  be extinguished by ordinary methods (*Clayton
    and Clayton 1981-82).

    Unusual  Fire and  Explosion Hazards:   In a  fire,  irritating alkali  fumes
    may form (*CHRIS 1978).  Lithium hydride  can form airborne dust clouds
    which may explode  on contact  with  flame,  heat, or oxidizing materials
    (*NFPA 1978).   Additionally,  spontaneous  ignition occurs when nitrous
    oxide and lithium  hydride  are mixed.   Lithium hydride also forms explosive
    mixtures with liquid oxygen (*NFPA 1978).


SECTION IV -- REACTIVITY DATA

    Stability:   Unstable:  Yes  (NFPA  1984,  p.  49-59)
                 Stable:

        Conditions to  Avoid:   Lithium  hydride may ignite spontaneously  in
        air  and should be  maintained and handled out of contact with air and
        moisture (*Clayton and Clayton 1981-82).  Any contact with nitrous
        oxide; airborne  powders may ignite upon reaching moisture (*NFPA 1978).

    Incompatibility  (Materials  to  Avoid):   Incompatible with air and
    moisture (*Clayton and Clayton 1981-82),  nitrous oxide, strong oxidizers,
    and liquid oxygen  (*NFPA 1978).

    Hazardous Decomposition or Byproducts:  Contact with heat, moisture or
    acid causes exothermic reaction and evolution of hydrogen as well as
    lithium  hydroxide  (*Clayton and Clayton  1981-82).

                      Ingestion:  Yes (*Grant 1974;  *Clayton and Clayton
                                  1981-82)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):  This material is
    relatively toxic  to  people.  It is more likely to cause  irritation of skin
    and mucous membrane  tissues  rather than death.  Its  effects  are primarily
    acute.  A massive exposure to the eyes and by inhalation may be lethal
    (*DOT 1984;  *Rumack  1975 to  Present).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Contact with mucous surfaces of eyes,
    upper respiratory tract, and skin produces tissue injury with features of
    thermal damage  and alkali corrosion (i.e., burning,  tearing, stinging of
    eyes,  coughing, breathing difficulty,  burns,  and  lesions).   Large doses by
    ingestion may cause  dizziness and collapse (*NFPA 1978,  *Gosselin  1976).'

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Those
    experiencing any  ailment of  the upper respiratory tract  (e.g., bronchitis
    or pneumonia) are at a greater risk (*Rumack  1975 to Present).

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:   Move victim to fresh  air; call
    emergency medical care.  Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and
    shoes  at site.  Wipe material from skin immediately.  Flush  skin or eyes
    with running water for minimum of 15  minutes  (*DOT 1984).

    Material reacts  violently with bases and is corrosive with the generation
    of heat.  Reacts with base metals, forming combustible gas (hydrogen).
    Reacts violently with strong oxidants forming toxic gas (chlorine)  (DASE
    1980,  p. 541).

    Hazardous Decomposition or Byproducts:  At high temperatures,  it
    decomposes  into  hydrogen and chlorine (*Encyc Occupat Health and Safety
    1983).

    Hazardous Polymerization:   May Occur:   Not  Found
                               May Not Occur:  Not Found

        Conditions to Avoid:  Not Found
SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:  Inhalation:  Yes (-Merck 1983)
                      Skin:   Yes  (*Merck  1983)
                      Ingestion:  Yes (*Merck 1983)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   Gas  concentrations of 50
    to 100 ppm are  tolerable for 1 hour.   Concentrations of 1,000 to 2,000  ppm
    are dangerous,  even  for brief exposures.  More severe exposures  will
    result in serious  respiratory distress and prolonged exposures will result
    in death.   Mists of  hydrochloric acid are considered less harmful than
    anhydrous hydrochloric acid, because droplets have no dehydrating action
    (*Sax 1975).

    Signs and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Inhalation may cause coughing and
    choking,  and  inflammation  and ulceration of the respiratory tract.
    Ingestion causes corrosion of the mucous membranes,  esophagus and stomach;
    nausea; vomiting;  intense  thirst and diarrhea.  Concentrated solutions  can
    cause severe  burns to the  skin.  Occupational exposures have led to
    dermatitis, photosensitization (*Merck 1983), gastritis,  and chronic
    bronchitis (-ACGIH 1980).  Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes.
    Concentrated  solutions can cause severe burns and permanent visual damage
    may occur (*Rumack 1975 to Present).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Individuals with
    respiratory problems and digestive diseases may be adversely affected by
    low level exposures  to the gas or mist (*Encyc Occupat Health and Safety
    1983).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA (Continued)

    Emergency and First Aid Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air;  call
    emergency medical  care.   If not breathing, give artificial respiration.
    If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  Remove and isolate contaminated
    clothing and shoes at  the site.  In case of contact with material,
    immediately flush  skin or eyes with running water for at least 15
    minutes.  Keep victim  quiet and maintain normal body temperature.  Effects
    may be delayed; keep victim under observation (-"DOT 1984).  If breathing
    is labored, administer humidified 100% oxygen for 30 minutes out  of every
    hour until symptoms subside.  For oral exposure,  do not induce vomiting or
    give bicarbonate to neutralize.  Irrigate the mouth with copious  amounts
    of water.   Dilute  stomach contents by drinking 1-2 large glasses  of water
    or milk (*Rumack 1975  to  Present).


SECTION  VI -- USE INFORMATION

    Major uses of hydrochloric acid include refining metal ore, lab reagent,
    and removing scale from boilers (*Merck 1983).   It is also a metal
    treating agent; it is  used in food processing,  and to neutralize  waste
    streams ("Hawley 1981).   It  is used in the manufacture of fertilizers  and
    dyes,  in electroplating,  in the textile industry, and in the rubber
    industry (*Encyc Occupat  Safety and Health 1983).


SECTION  VII  --  PRECAUTIONS  FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(Steps to be Taken in  Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    If a spill or leak from a small drum or container or a small leak from a
    tank occurs,  then  isolate area in excess of 190 feet in all directions.
    If a large spill from  a  large tank or from many drums occurs, isolate  an
    area with a radius of  450 feet.  In the downwind direction, evacuate an
    area 1.0 miles wide and  1.4 miles long.  Keep unnecessary people  away  and
    stay upwind.   Stay out of low areas.  Ventilate closed areas before
    entering them. Wear positive pressure breathing apparatus and full
    protective clothing.   Use water spray to reduce vapor from leak.   For
    small spills, flush area with flooding amounts of water.  For larger
    spills, dike far ahead of spill for later disposal.   Do not get water
    inside containers  ("DOT  1984).  Spilled material can be neutralized with
    powdered limestone, slaked lime, soda ash, or sodium bicarbonate  (*CHRIS
    1978).

    damage.   Repeated ingestion  of  small amounts resulted in moderately
    advanced hardening of  the  bones  ("Gosselin 1976).  Contact of skin with
    anhydrous liquid produces  severe burns  ("Clayton and Clayton 1981-82).
    Inhalation of anhydrous hydrogen fluoride or hydrogen fluoride mist or
    vapors can cause severe respiratory  tract irritation that may be fatal
    (*NRC  1S81).

    Signs  and  Symptoms of Exposure:   External  contact with the  liquid or
    vapor  causes  severe irritation  of eyes  and eyelids which may result in
    prolonged or  permanent visual defects or total destruction of eyes.  Skin
    contact  may result in  severe burns.  Inhalation causes extreme irritation
    of the respiratory tract.  Ingestion causes necrosis of the esophagus and
    stomach  with  nausea, vomiting,  diarrhea, circulatory collapse, and death
    (*Merck  1976).

    Medical  Conditions Generally  Aggravated by  Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:   Oral exposure:   dilute with 1 or 2
    glasses  of water or milk without delay.  Do not induce vomiting.  Patient
    should be observed and evaluated for internal burns.  Eye exposure:
    irrigate copiously with water for at least 15 minutes.  Dermal exposure:
    wash area with soap and water.  Treatment should include recommendations
    listed in oral exposure section when appropriate.  Inhalation:  remove
    patient  to fresh air,  monitor for respiratory distress.  If cough or
    difficulty in breathing develops, evaluate for respiratory tract
    irritation, bronchitis and pneumonia (*Rumack 1975 to Present).

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Corrosive to all body
    tissues.  Inhalation  of vapor  may cause serious lung damage.   Contact with
    eyes may result in total  loss  of vision.  Skin contact may  produce  severe
    necrosis (*Merck 1983).   Fatal amount for adult:  between  1 teaspoonful
    and one-half ounce of the concentrated chemical.  Even a few drops  may be
    fatal  if the acid gains access to the trachea (*Arena 1974).   Chronic
    exposure may cause tracheobronchitis, stomatitis,  conjunctivitis, and
    gastritis (*ACGIH 1980).   Gastric perforation and peritonitis  may occur
    and may be followed by circulatory collapse.  Circulatory shock is  often
    the immediate cause of death (*Gosselin 1984).

    Signs and Symptoms  of Exposure:   Contact  causes corrosion of mucous
    membranes of mouth, throat, and esophagus with immediate pain  and
    difficulty in swallowing.  Damaged tissue is greyish white, soon to be
    black, shrunken and wrinkled;  epigastric pain,  nausea and vomiting,  and
    gastric hemorrage also result.  Vomit may contain fresh blood;  and  victims
    complain of  profound  thirst.   Clammy skin, weak and rapid pulse, shallow
    respiration  and scanty urine are caused by exposure (*Gosselin 1984).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Those  with
    chronic respiratory,  gastrointestinal, or nervous diseases  and any  eye and
    skin diseases are at  greater risk (*Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1983).

    Emergency and  First  Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air; call
    emergency medical care.   If not breathing, give artificial  respiration.
    If breathing is difficult; give oxygen.   If contact with material occurs,
    flush  skin or eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes.   Remove and
    isolate contaminated  clothing  and shoes at the site.  Keep  victim quiet
    and maintain normal body  temperature.  Effects may be delayed;  keep victim
    under  observation (*DOT 1984).

    Wear full protective clothing  including self-contained breathing
    apparatus, coat,  pants,  gloves, boots, bands around arms, legs, and
    waist.   No skin surface  should be exposed (*NFPA  1978).  Keep all sources
    of ignition away  from containers  because  explosive mixtures of hydrogen
    may be produced during storage.   Small spills:  cover area with sodium
    bicarbonate or soda  ash/slaked lime.   Shovel neutralized residues into
    containers for disposal, or (if not  available) cover area with sand or
    earth and shovel  into disposal containers ("Environment Canada 1984).
    Other neutralizing agents are  calcinated  dolomite, calcium oxide and
    hydroxide, sodium carbonate.   Place  sulfuric acid absorbed in vermiculate
    in sealed containers (*NIOSH/OSHA 1981).   Spill or leak from small
    containers:  isolate 280 feet  in  all  directions.  Spill or leak from  large
    containers:  isolate 580 feet  in  all  directions;  in downwind direction,
    isolate an area of 1.5 miles wide, 2.2 miles long.  Keep unnecessary
    people away; isolate hazard area  and  deny entry.  Stay upwind; keep out of
    low areas.  Ventilate closed spaces  before entering them.  Notify proper
    authorities in case  of water pollution.   Do not touch spilled material.
    Use water spray to reduce vapor;  do  not get water inside container.  Dike
    for later disposal (*DOT 1984).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:   Inhalation:  Yes (Weiss 1980, p. 656)
                       Skin:   Yes  (Weiss  1980, p.  656)
                       Ingestion:  Yes (Weiss 1980, p. 656)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   This  compound  is  a
    primary irritant,  and  causes burns and ulceration of all tissues and
    membranes that it  contacts.  This includes burns to the eyes and skin by
    contact,  burns to  the  mouth, throat,  esophagus, and stomach by ingestion,
    and the entire respiratory tract by inhalation.  Circulatory collapse and
    shock  is  often the immediate cause of death ("'-'Gosselin 1984).   The
    approximate minimum lethal dose is 5 ml for a  150-lb person (*Arena 1979).

    Signs  and  Symptoms of Exposure:  This  compound  causes burns  and
    ulceration of all  tissues  to which it comes into contact.   Ingestion
    causes burns, stomach  pain, nausea and vomiting.  After a few hours or a
    few days  ruptured  gut  may  occur.  Shock with clammy skin,  weak and rapid
    pulse, shallow respiration and scanty urine may occur  (""Gosselin 1984).
    Inhalation can lead to bronchitis, respiratory tract irritation and
    pneumonia (*Rumack 1975 to Dresent).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Persons with
    skin,  eye or cardiopulmonary disorders are at  a greater risk (*Encyc
    Occupat Health and Safety  1983).

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  If ingested, do not induce
    vomiting or give bicarbonate to neutralize.  Irrigate the mouth and throat
    with large amounts of  water and dilute the stomach contents by having the
    victim drink 1-2 large glasses of water or milk.  If contacted, wash the
    skin or eyes with  tap  water for at least 15 minutes.  Following
    inhalation, remove the victim to fresh air and monitor the patient for
    respiratory distress.  Administer humidified 100 percent oxygen for 30
    minutes out of every hour  if necessary ("Rumack 1975 to Present).

    protective clothing (*DOT 1984).  Ventilate area of spill or leak.   Flush
    with copious quantities of water and neutralize with alkaline material
    (such as  soda ash,  lime,  etc.) (-NIOSH/OSHA 1981).   If a small spill or
    leak,  isolate for 100 feet in all directions.  If a large spill,  first
    isolate 210  feet  in all directions, then isolate downwind an area of 0.5
    miles wide and 0.7  miles  long (-DOT 1984).  Keep combustibles (wood,
    paper, oil,  etc.) away from spilled material.  Do not touch spilled
    material;  stop leak if you can do so without risk.   Use water spray to
    reduce vapors;  do not get water inside container.  Small spills:   flush
    area with flooding  amounts of water.  Large spills:   dike far ahead of
    spill for later disposal  (DOT 1984, Guide 44).

        LEL:   Not Found
        DEL:   Not Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Fire  involving hydrogen peroxide should be
    fought with water, since the use  of  chemicals may accelerate decomposition
    ("Encyc Occupat  Health  and  Safety 1971).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  Avoid breathing vapors.  Keep
    upwind.   Wear respiratory protection if material is misting.  Wear boots,
    protective gloves and goggles.  Do not handle broken packages without
    protective equipment  (Student  1981,  p. 282).

    Unusual  Fire and Explosion Hazards:  Hydrogen  peroxide  is  not  a
    flammable substance,  but if high  concentrations are allowed to contact
    combustible materials,  spontaneous ignition may occur.  In addition, the
    oxygen released  in decomposition  will promote combustion.  Vapor
    concentrations greater  than 40 percent by weight can be decomposed
    explosively at one atmosphere  pressure ('-Encyc Occupat Health and Safety
    1971).  When highly  concentrated  or  pure hydrogen peroxide is exposed to
    heat,  mechanical impact, or decomposing catalysts, such as metals and
    their  salts, dusts and  alkalies,  severe explosion hazard may occur
    (*Martin 1978).


SECTION  IV -- REACTIVITY DATA

    Stability:  Unstable:   Yes (*Merck 1976)
                 Stable:

        Conditions to Avoid: Avoid  contact with  combustible materials.
        Avoid contamination from dust, metal, etc. as such contamination may
        lead to rapid decomposition  (*Merck 1976).

    Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid):  Avoid contact with combustible
    materials (*Merck  1976) and keep  away from heat and sunlight (*ASHP).
    Powerful oxidizer  (NIOSH/OSHA  1978,  p. 112).

    Hazardous Decomposition or Byproducts:  Solutions of hydrogen peroxide
    in concentration in  excess  of  65  percent by weight heat up spontaneously,
    decomposing to water  and oxygen.  For 90 percent concentration solutions,
    hydrogen peroxide can be decomposed  due to the  introduction of a catalytic
    decomposition agent.   It can get  quite hot and perhaps start fire (*Sax
    1979).

                      Ingestion:   Yes (*Gosselin 1976)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Solutions exceeding 27.5
    percent by weight of hydrogen peroxide may cause irritation,  or eye  injury
    (*Rumack 1975 to Present).  If inhaled, may be harmful (*DOT  1984).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Hydrogen peroxide  solutions can cause
    congestion and  irritation  of mucous membranes (*Arena 1979).   Large  doses
    may produce  esophagitis and gastritis (*Gosselin 1976).  Brief contact
    with skin usually results  in a burning sensation and temporary bleaching
    effect.  Longer contact will cause blistering ('"Encyc Occupat Health and
    Safety 1971).   Inhalation  of 7 ppm hydrogen peroxide causes lung
    irritation  (*Thienes 1972).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air;  call
    emergency medical care.  Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and
    shoes at the site.   In case of contact with material, immediately flush
    skin or eyes with running  water for at least 15 minutes.   Keep victim
    quiet and maintain normal  body temperature (*DOT 1984).

    For inhalation  exposure, remove patient to uncontaminated atmosphere.
    Establish respiration.  For skin contact, wash exposed areas  and observe
    for subsequent  irritation.  For eye contact, irrigate eyes  thoroughly with
    water for 15 minutes and refer for ophthaltnologic examination.  For
    ingestion, dilute with water (-Rumack 1975 to Present).

    (For hydrogen peroxide, stablized, with more than 52  percent peroxide.)
    Keep unnecessary  people away;  isolate hazard area and deny entry.   Stay
    upwind; keep out  of low areas.  Wear self-contained (positive pressure if
    available) breathing apparatus and full protective clothing.  Keep
    combustibles (wood,  paper, oil, etc.) away from spilled material.   Do  not
    touch  spilled material; stop leak if you can do so without risk.  Use
    water  spray  to reduce vapors.  Small spills:  flush area with flooding
    amounts of water.   Large spills:  dike spill for later disposal (DOT 1984,
    Guide  47).

SECTION  III -- FIRE  AND EXPLOSION  HAZARD DATA

    Flash  Point (Method Used):  White/Yellow:  Ignites spontaneously in
    air at  or above 86F,  30C (*NIOSH/OSHA  1981).
    Flammable  Limits:  White/Yellow:  Can be ignited under almost all
    normal  temperature conditions.  Red:  Material that must be preheated
    before  ignition can occur  (*NFPA 1978).
        LEL:   Not  Found
        UEL:   Not  Found

    Extinguishing Methods:  Small fires:  dry chemical,  sand, water spray,
    or foam.  Large fires:  water  spray, fog, or foam.  Cool containers that
    are exposed to  flames with water from the side until well after fire is
    out (DOT 1984,  Guides 32,  38).

    Special  Fire Fighting Procedures:  White/Yellow:  Deluge with water,
    taking  care not to scatter,  until fire is extinguished and phosphorus  has
    solidified, then cover with  wet sand or dirt.   Red:  Flood with water  and
    when fire is  extingushed,  cover with wet sand or dirt.  Extreme caution
    should  be used  during clean  up since reignition may occur.  Under certain
    conditions at high temperature, red phosphorus reverts to more hazardous
    white  phosphorus (*NFPA 1978).

    Unusual Fire and  Explosion  Hazards:   It will  ignite  itself  if exposed
    to air.  Will reignite itself  after  fire is extinguished (*DOT 1984).
    White/Yellow:   Ignites at  approximately 86F,  30C in air; ignition
    temperature is  higher when air is dry.  Black:  Does not catch fire
    spontaneously.   Red:   Catches  fire when heated in air to approximately
    500F,  260C  and burns with  formation of the pentoxide.  Burns when heated
    in atmosphere of chlorine.   Caution:  Avoid contact with potassium
    chlorate, potassium permanganate, peroxides and other oxidizing agents;
    explosions may  result on contact or  friction (Merck 1983, pp. 1059-1060).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:   Inhalation:  Yes  ("Sax 1975)
                       Skin:   Yes  (*Encyc  Occupat Health and Safety  1971)
                       Ingestion:  Yes  (*Sax 1975)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):   Inhalation  exposure to
    11-23  mg/m*  produces  severe  choking.   30-60 mg/m3 is extremely
    dangerous.   200  mg/m1  is  fatal in a short time.  Vapors can cause acute
    as well as  chronic  poisoning.  It has  cumulative properties (*Encyc
    Occupat Health and  Safety 1971).  It is irritating to the eyes and
    respiratory tract  (*NFPA  1978).  Poisoning is due to the corrosive action
    on the gastrointestinal tract.  Nervous, circulatory and renal
    disturbances occur  after  ingestion.  Ingestion of liquid can cause death
    due to circulatory  collapse  and asphyxiation from swelling of the
    respiratory tract  (*Gosselin 1976).  The lowest oral lethal dose reported
    for humans  is 14 mg/kg.   The lowest lethal inhalation concentration
    reported for humans is  1000  ppm (*NIOSH/RTECS 1985).

    Signs  and Symptoms of Exposure:   Inhalation:   small  amount will  cause
    coughing,  nose bleed,  dizziness, and headache followed by abdominal pain
    and diarrhea and sometimes measles-like eruptions on trunk and
    extremities.  Skin  contact causes pustules and painful nodules in exposed
    areas  of skin; if not  removed will  cause deep, painful ulcers.   Ingestion
    (of liquid)  causes  burning pain in mouth and esophagus, lips and mucous
    membranes  stained brown,  severe gastroenteritis evidenced by abdominal
    pain and diarrhea,  rapid  heartbeat, cyanosis, and shock (^Clayton and
    Clayton 1981-82).   Regular exposure to concentrations approaching the
    permissible exposure  level causes irritability, loss of appetite, joint
    pains  and dyspepsia.   Other  symptoms include loss of cornea reflexes,
    inflammation of  the throat,  thyroid dysfunction, cardiovascular disorders,
    disorders  of digestive  tract (*Encyc Occupat Health and Safety 1971).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air; call
    emergency medical care.   If  not breathing, give artificial respiration.
    If breathing is  difficult, give oxygen.  In case of contact with material,
    immediately flush skin  or eyes with running water for at least 15
    minutes.   Remove and  isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at  the site.
    Keep victim quiet and  maintain normal  body temperature.  Effects may be
    delayed;  keep victim under observation (DOT 1984, Guide 59).

    agent  and for swimming  pool sanitation and water purification (*SRI).


SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING  AND  USE
(Steps to  be  Taken in Case  Material is Released or Spilled)

    Wear eye  protection  (see Section V above).  Wear positive pressure
    breathing apparatus and special protective clothing (DOT 1984, Guide 59).
    Ventilate area of spill or  leak.  Collect for reclamation by absorbing it
    in vermiculite, dry sand, earth, or a similar material and disposing in
    sealed containers in  secured sanitary landfill (*NIOSH/OSHA 1981).
    Potassium carbonate,  sodium carbonate, sodium bicarbonate, lime, and
    sodium hydroxide  solutions are neutralizing agents for liquid bromine
    spills (*Clayton  and  Clayton 1981-82).  Do not touch material, stop leak
    if possible  without risk.  Use water spray to reduce vapors.  Small
    spills:   absorb with  sand or other noncombustible absorbent material and
    place  in  container.   Large spills:  dike spill for later disposal (DOT
    1984,  Guide  59).   In  case of a spill or leak from a drum or smaller
    container or a small  leak from a tank, isolate for 170 feet in all
    directions.   In case  of a large spill, first isolate for 350 feet in all
    directions,  then  evacuate in a downwind direction an area 0.8 miles wide
    and 1.3 miles long (DOT 1984, Table of Isolation and Evacuation Distances).

SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD  DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):  This material is
    extremely toxic;  the probable oral lethal dose for humans  is 5-50 mg/kg,
    or between 7  drops and  1 teaspoonful for a 150 Ib.  person  (*Gosselin
    1976).  It is an  irritant to eyes, respiratory tract,  mouth and stomach
    (*CHRIS 1978).  Damage  to kidneys, liver and the  nervous system have been
    reported (*Rumack 1975  to Present).  (Non-Specific --  Arsenic)  Chronic
    exposure can  cause bone marrow damage,  often leading to aplastic anemia.
    There  is epidemiological evidence that  chronic ingestion of arsenic
    compounds causes  a predisposition to skin cancers (*Gilman 1980).

    Signs  and Symptoms of Exposure:   Similar to arsenic.  Early  symptoms
    include abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody or watery diarrhea, pain in
    extremities and muscles, weakness, flushing of skin, numbness and tingling
    in extremities, intense thirst, and muscular cramps.   Kidney failure may
    occur.  Jaundice  may appear within an hour (*Rumack 1975 to Present).  In
    severe poisoning, death can occur within an hour, but  the  usual interval
    is 24  hours (*Gilman 1980).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to  fresh air.  Call
    emergency medical care.  Remove contaminated clothing  and  shoes.  In case
    of contact with material, immediately flush skin  or eyes with running
    water  for at  least 15 minutes (*DOT 1984).


SECTION  VI -- USE  INFORMATION

                      Ingestion:  Yes (-Sax 1979)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and Chronic):  Capable of causing death
    or permanent  injury.   Acute  -- the material is highly toxic  by  inhalation
    exposure and  a  strong  irritant to skin, eyes, the lungs,  the throat, and
    stomach (*Sax 1979).   Death  can occur from filling of the lungs with fluid
    (pulmonary edema) or from  asphyxiation due to spasm of the throat  (larynx)
    or bronchi (*Rumack  1975 to  Present).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:  Symptoms  after  inhalation include
    headache,  difficult breathing, and garlic odor on the breath (NIOSH/OSHA
    1978,  p.  173).   Eye exposure causes irritation (reddening) and pain
    (*Rumack 1975 to Present).   Skin contact leads to burns with bluish-black
    patches.   Garlic odor  on breath, sweat and urine (ACGIH 1980, p. 382).

    Medical  Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Those with
    impaired pulmonary function, especially obstructive airway diseases are at
    a greater risk  (*NIOSH/OSHA  1981).

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:   Treatment is  similar to that for
    chlorine gas  exposure.  For  inhalation exposures, remove  patient from area
    immediately.  Establish respiration.   Administer oxygen at 100 percent
    humidification  for short periods, then at a concentration comfortable to
    the patient.  For eye  or skin exposure, irrigate area for 15 minutes with
    water (*Rumack  1975 to Present).

SECTION  IV -- REACTIVITY DATA  (Continued)

    Hazardous  Decomposition or Byproducts:  When heated to decomposition,
    it emits toxic fumes of arsenic.  Contact with water produces  hydrogen
    chloride (-Sax 1975).

    Hazardous  Polymerization:   May Occur:
                               May Not Occur:  Yes  (Weiss 1980,  p. 128)

        Conditions to Avoid:   Not Found
SECTION  V -- HEALTH  HAZARD DATA

    Routes of Entry:  Inhalation:  Yes (*Rumack 1975 to Present)
                      Skin:   Yes  (Gosselin 1984, p. 111-42)
                      Ingestion:  Yes (Gosselin 1984,  p.  111-42)

    Health Hazards  (Acute, Delayed,  and  Chronic):   It  can cause death.  In
    acute  exposures,  it  is extremely toxic and caustic, owing not  only to  the
    poisonous nature of  arsenic, but also to the release of  hydrochloric acid
    in the presence  of water  (*Grant 1974).  Exposure to the skin  causes local
    irritation and blisters.   Inhalation or ingestion causes hemorrhagic
    gastroenteritis  resulting  in loss of fluids and electrolytes,  collapse,
    shock  and death  (Gosselin  1984, p. 111-42).  Chronic poisoning can lead  to
    peripheral nerve damage, skin conditions,  liver damage ("Sax  1975, *Merck
    1976); and it  has been implicated in the induction of skin and lung cancer
    (Gosselin 1984,  p. 111-42, Oilman 1980).  The fatal human dose is  70-180
    mg depending on  the  weight of the victim (Weiss 1980, p. 128).

    Signs  and  Symptoms of Exposure:  Death is possible.   Symptoms usually
    appear one-half  to one hour after ingestion.  Symptoms include a sweetish
    metallic taste,  garlicky odor on the breath and stools,  constriction in
    throat, difficulty swallowing, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, bluing
    of the skin, weak pulse, dizziness, headaches, coma, and convulsions
    (*Gosselin 1976).  Exposure to vapors causes spasm of eyelids, tearing,
    pain,  and reddening  (*Grant  1974).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air and call
    emergency medical care.   If not breathing,  give artificial respiration;  if
    breathing is difficult, give oxygen.   In case of contact with  material,
    immediately flush skin or  eyes with running water for at least 15
    minutes.  Remove material  from skin immediately; remove  and isolate
    contaminated clothing  and  shoes at the site.  Effects may be  delayed so
    keep victim under observation  (DOT 1984, Guide 55).

                              ARSINE
SECTION  V -- HEALTH HAZARD DATA (Continued)

    Health Hazards (Acute, Delayed, and Chronic):  This material is highly
    toxic  by inhalation;  a very  short exposure to small quantities  may cause
    death  or permanent  injury  (Sax  1984, p. 323).  Arsine is the most  powerful
    hemolytic poison  encountered in industry (^Hamilton 1974).

    Signs  and Symptoms of Exposure:   Signs of  poisoning usually develop
    within several  hours  after exposure.  Frontal headache,  dizziness,  nausea
    and vomiting, stomach  pain,  sweating, twitching,  and weakness occur early,
    followed by  tea-colored urine or bloody urine.   Later there may be albumen
    and casts in the  urine or suppression of urine flow.   Jaundice  and
    tenderness over the liver may appear.  Anemia may develop.   Delirium may
    develop, along  with convulsions, low blood pressure,  and finally cardiac
    failure causing death  (Sax 1984, p. 324; NIOSH/OSHA 1978, p.  48).

    Medical Conditions  Generally Aggravated by  Exposure:   Not Found

    Emergency and First Aid  Procedures:  Move victim to fresh air.   If not
    breathing, give artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult, give
    oxygen.  Remove and isolate  contaminated clothing and shoes at  the site.
    In case of contact  with material, immediately flush skin or eyes with
    running water for at  least 15 minutes.  Keep victim quiet and maintain
    normal body  temperature.  Effects may be delayed; keep victim under
    observation  (*DOT 1984).


SECTION  VI --  USE  INFORMATION

    This material is  used  in the manufacture of electronic components.   It  may
    be used in organic  synthesis and as a poison gas  for military purposes
    (*SRI).


SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS  FOR SAFE HANDLING AND  USE
(steps to  be Taken  in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    No flares, smoking, or flames in area.  Use water spray to reduce  vapors.
    Isolate area until  arsine gas has dispersed.  Stay upwind;  keep out of  low
    areas.  Vear positive  pressure breathing apparatus and full protective
    clothing (*DOT  1984).  There is a high potential  for generation of arsine
    gas when inorganic  arsenic is exposed to freshly-formed molecular  hydrogen
    (*Blackwell  1979).

    them.  Wear boots, protective gloves, goggles,  and positive pressure
    breathing apparatus.  Wash away any material which may have contacted the
    body with copious amounts of water or soap and  water (Student 1981, p.
    504, DOT 1984,  Guide 55).  In case of land spill,  dig a pit, pond, lagoon,
    or holding area to contain the liquid or solid  material.  Cover solids
    with a plastic  sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or firefighting water.
    In case of water spill, if camphechlor is dissolved, apply activated
    carbon at ten times the spilled amount in region  of 10 ppm or greater
    concentration.  Remove trapped material with suction hoses.  Use
    mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and
    precipitates (Student 1981, p. 504).

    cholinesterase  inhibitor  (*Merck 1983).  It is readily absorbed  through
    the skin (*Sax  1979) and  is  extremely toxic.   Probable human lethal  oral
    dose is 5-50  mg/kg or  7 drops to 1 teaspoonful for 150 Ib.  person
    (*Gosselin 1984).  Acute  dose is believed to be 12 to  20 mg by oral  route
    (*Sax 1979).

    Signs and Symptoms of Exposure:   Symptoms  include weakness, nausea,
    dizziness,  headache, vomiting, apathy, visual disorders, irregular heart
    beat,  salivation, abdominal  soreness,  diarrhea, depression,  twitching of
    the face and  muscles of the  extremities, sweating, pupil dilation,
    monotonous speech and  shallow respiration (-Encyc Occupat Health and
    Safety 1983).   Skin contact-  may not be noticed because it has no
    irritating effect (*CHRIS 1978).

    Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure:  Not Found

    Emergency and  First Aid  Procedures:   This material is an
    organophosphorous pesticide  (Buchel 1983, p.  178).  Treatment is as
    follows.   Move  victim  to  fresh air; call emergency medical care. If not
    breathing,  give artificial respiration.  If breathing  is difficult,  give
    oxygen.  Remove and isolate  contaminated clothing and  shoes at the site.
    In case of contact with material, immediately flush skin or eyes with
    running water for at least 15 minutes.  Keep victim quiet and maintain
    normal body temperature.  Effects may be delayed; keep victim under
    observation (DOT 1984, Guide 28).

SECTION  VI  --  USE INFORMATION

    This material  is used primarily as an agricultural insecticide (*Merck
    1976).

SECTION  VII  -- PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE
(Steps to be  Taken in Case Material is Released or Spilled)

    Use an organic vapor respirator in confined areas; rubber or latex gloves;
    and splash goggles  (*CHRIS 1978).  Spills  may be  cleaned up by absorbing
    the material in vermiculite, dry sand, earth, or  a similar material
    (*NIOSH/OSHA 1981).  General precautions  for organophosphorous pesticides
    are as follows.  Keep unnecessary people  away; stay upwind.  Shut off
    ignition  sources; no flares, smoking, or  flames in hazard area.  Do not
    touch spilled  material.  Use water spray  to reduce vapors.  Take up spills
    with noncombustible absorbent material.   For large spills, dike far ahead
    (DOT 1984, Guide 28).
