General advice: First Aid responders should pay attention to self-protection and use the recommended protective clothing. Move out of dangerous area. Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Keep warm and in a quiet place.
If inhaled: Provide fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Keep the victim calm and in a semi-upright position. Call a physician immediately.
In case of skin contact: Wash off immediately with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.
In case of eye contact: Rinse immediately with plenty of water, also under the eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.
If swallowed: Clean mouth with water and drink afterwards plenty of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Do NOT induce vomiting. Call a physician immediately.

Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
Risks: If swallowed, severe burns in the oral cavity and throat as well as danger of perforation of the digestive tract and stomach.

Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
Treatment: Treat symptomatically. For specialist advice physicians should contact the Poisons Information Service.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Dry extinguishing media based on NaCl or pulverized limestone.
Unsuitable extinguishing media: Water, Carbon dioxide (CO2), Foam

Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Specific hazards during firefighting: Dust can form an explosive mixture in air. Hazardous decomposition products formed under fire conditions. Nitrogen oxides (NOx)

Advice for firefighters
Special protective equipment for firefighters: Wear full protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus.
Further information: Use water spray to cool unopened containers. Be aware of a dangerous reaction with water, if the container is ruptured. Collect contaminated fire extinguishing water separately. This must not be discharged into drains. Fire residues and contaminated fire extinguishing water must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.

Accidental release measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
Remove all sources of ignition. Ensure adequate ventilation. Wear personal protective equipment. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak.

Environmental precautions
Do not flush into surface water or sanitary sewer system. Should not be released into the environment.

Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up
Methods for cleaning up: Never allow contact with water. Cover spilled material with limestone powder. Avoid dust formation. Pick up and transfer to properly labelled containers. Adequate disposal.

Handling and storage

Precautions for safe handling
Advice on safe handling: Handle under inert gas. Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Never allow water to come into contact with the product. Avoid dust formation. Wear personal protective equipment. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. In general, emissions are controlled and prevented by implementing an appropriate management system, including regular informing and training workers.

Advice on protection against fire and explosion: Keep away from sources of ignition - No smoking. Take precautions against dust explosion. Use explosion-proof equipment. Take precautionary measures against static discharges.

Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities
Requirements for storage areas and containers: Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Protect from humidity and water. Keep away from heat. Protect from direct sunlight.
Advice on common storage: Never allow product to get in contact with water during storage; Acids, Carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen halides, Alcohols, other protic substances.

Storage temperature : -10 - 40 °C

Specific end use(s)
Specific use(s): Reagent for organic synthesis.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures
Provide sufficient air exchange and/or exhaust in work rooms. Take precautionary measures against static discharges. Electrical equipment should be protected to the appropriate standard.

2. Organisational protection measures
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and safety shower. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice.

3. Hand protection
Glove material: Wear suitable gloves complying with EN 374 and flame retardant gloves complying with EN 659.
The choice of an appropriate glove does not only depend on its material but also on other quality features and is different from one producer to the other. The exact break through time can be obtained from the protective glove producer and this has to be observed. Protective gloves have to be replaced at the first sign of deterioration.

5. Body protection
Flame retardant, antistatic and chemical resistant protective clothing

6. Eye protection
Tightly fitting safety goggles (EN 166)

7. Hygiene measures
Take off contaminated clothing and shoes immediately. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Keep away from food, drink and animal feeding stuffs. Smoking, eating and drinking should be prohibited in the application area. Wash hands before breaks and at the end of workday. Do not breathe dust.

Stability and reactivity

Reactivity
Risk of violent reaction.

Chemical stability
Decomposes on heating, Sensitive to air, Decomposition under influence of moisture is highly accelerated by heating.

Possibility of hazardous reactions
Reacts violently with water. Contact with water liberates toxic gas. Dust can form an explosive mixture in air.

Conditions to avoid
Keep away from open flames, hot surfaces and sources of ignition. Keep away from heat. Protect from direct sunlight. Protect from moisture. Static discharge. Avoid contact with air/oxygen.

Incompatible materials
Materials to avoid: Water, Acids, Carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen halides, Alcohols
Other protic substances.

Hazardous decomposition products
Risk of decomposition: Decomposes on contact with water producing ammonia and lithium hydroxide.
Thermal decomposition: To avoid thermal decomposition, do not overheat.

Disposal considerations

Waste treatment methods
Product: Dispose of as hazardous waste in compliance with local and national regulations.
Contaminated packaging: Refer to manufacturer/supplier for information on recovery/recycling.
Waste Code: Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities.
