First-aid measures

Inhalation: Move to fresh air. Treat symptomatically. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.
Eyes: Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out immediately with water. If easy to do, remove contact lenses. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. In case of irritation from airborne exposure, move to fresh air. Get medical attention if symptoms persist.
Skin: Wash with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash contaminated clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.
Ingestion: Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Extinguishing Media: water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, foam
Special Fire-Fighting Procedures: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective clothing. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. USE WATER WITH CAUTION. Material will float and may ignite on surface of water. Water may be ineffective in fighting the fire.
Hazardous Combustion Products: carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide
Unusual Fire and Explosion Hazards: Combustible.

Accidental release measures

Use personal protective equipment. Eliminate all ignition sources. Absorb spill with vermiculite or other inert material, then place in a container for chemical waste.
For Large Spills: Use water spray to disperse vapors and flush spill area. Prevent runoff from entering drains, sewers, or streams. Dike for later disposal.

Handling and storage

Personal Precautionary Measures: Avoid breathing high vapor concentrations. Avoid prolonged or repeated contact with skin. Use only with adequate ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling.
Prevention of Fire and Explosion: Keep away from heat and flame. Use only with adequate ventilation. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials.
Storage: Keep container tightly closed and in a well-ventilated place.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Country specific exposure limits have not been established or are not applicable unless listed below.
HEPTAN-2-ONE
EU. Indicative Exposure and Directives relating to the protection of risks related to work exposure to chemical, physical, and biological agents.
Time Weighted Average (TWA): 50 ppm, 238 mg/m3
EU. Indicative Exposure and Directives relating to the protection of risks related to work exposure to chemical, physical, and biological agents.
Short Term Exposure Limit (STEL): 100 ppm, 475 mg/m3
EU. Indicative Exposure and Directives relating to the protection of risks related to work exposure to chemical, physical, and biological agents.
Skin designation: Can be absorbed through the skin.
Ventilation: Good general ventilation (typically 10 air changes per hour) should be used. Ventilation rates should be matched to conditions. If applicable, use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to maintain airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If exposure limits have not been established, maintain airborne levels to an acceptable level.
Respiratory Protection: If engineering controls do not maintain airborne concentrations below recommended exposure limits (where applicable) or to an acceptable level (in countries where exposure limits have not been established), an approved respirator must be worn. In the United States of America, if respirators are used, a program should be instituted to assure compliance with OSHA Standard 63 FR 1152, January 8, 1998. Respirator type: Air-purifying respirator with an appropriate, government approved (where applicable), air-purifying filter, cartridge or canister. Contact health and safety professional or manufacturer for specific information.
Eye Protection: It is a good industrial hygiene practice to minimize eye contact.
Skin Protection: For operations where prolonged or repeated skin contact may occur, chemical-resistant gloves should be worn. Contact health and safety professional or manufacturer for specific information.
Recommended Decontamination Facilities: eye bath, washing facilities, safety shower

Stability and reactivity

Stability:
Stable; however, material can decompose at elevated temperatures.
Incompatibility:
Material reacts violently with strong oxidizing agents
Hazardous Polymerization:
Will not occur.

Disposal considerations

Discharge, treatment, or disposal may be subject to national, state, or local laws. Incinerate. Since emptied containers retain product residue, follow label warnings even after container is emptied.
