Merck  14,1129
BRN  471308
Henry's Law Constant (x 10-4 atm?m3/mol): 3.57 at 20.00 °C (inert gas stripping, Hovorka and Dohnal, 1997)
Exposure limits TLV-TWA 1 ppm (~5mg/m3) (ACGIH, MSHA, and OSHA); IDLH 10 ppm (NIOSH); carcinogenicity: Animal Limited Evidence, Human Inadequate Evidence (IARC).
Stability Unstable - inhibitors such as propylene oxide or trimethylamine are usually added to prevent polymerization. Combustible. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, water, acids, most common metals, dimethyl sulfoxide. Above flash point vapour-air mixtures are explosive within the limits noted above. Contact with water produces toxic fumes.
