Administrative data

First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove patient to fresh air. Seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Eyes: Wash the eyes with clean water or isotonic saline for at

least 10 minutes. If irritation occurs seek medical


Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing, wash skin thoroughly with soap

and water. If irritation occurs seek medical attention.

Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, carbon dioxide, foam and dry powder may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon and


Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing

apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1).

Avoid dust formation. Absorb spillages of solutions with a

suitable inert material (eg sand or soil). Carefully

transfer the spillage to labelled waste containers, or use a

sealed industrial vacuum machine. Dispose of waste material

by recovering the metal at a precious metal refinery in

accordance with local regulations. Wash the spill area with

water and detergent. Do not allow washings to enter


Handling and storage

Handling: Ensure adequate ventilation. Avoid inhalation and contact

with skin and eyes. Protective clothing, chemical resistant

gloves and goggles should be worn together with an

appropriate filter-type respirator conforming to the

appropriate national standards.

Storage: Store in tightly closed containers in a cool dry

well-ventilated area.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Substance: Store in plastic containers.

Preparation: Acetic acid solution stored in UN 1H1

specification plastic drums.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: The substance decomposes at temperatures in excess of 256

deg C, if involved in a fire. The residue, ash or char left

after a fire may have catalytic properties and could promote

re-ignition of flammable materials or vapours.

Chemical reaction with water: None reported.

Dust explosion: Not anticipated.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: All residues and spilt material should be recovered and

returned to a precious metal refinery for iridium recovery.


Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended. The substance should not be discharged

directly to the sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: The substance, preparations of the substance, contaminated

containers or spillages of solutions mixed with inert

material (eg sand or soil) should be disposed of by recovery

of the metal at a precious metal refinery.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
