Safety Profile
Human poison by ingestion. Moderately toxic to humans by an unspecified route. Moderately toxic experimentally by intraperitoneal, intravenous, and subcutaneous routes. An experimental teratogen. Human systemic effects by ingestion: flaccid paralysis without anesthesia, general anesthesia, dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, and respiratory stimulation. Experimental reproductive effects. A severe skin and eye irritant. Ingestion of relatively small amounts has caused severe poisoning and death. Combustible liquid when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxibzing materials. To fight fire, use CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
