First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air, or supply oxygen. Seek immediate
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate with water or isotonic saline solution for at least
15 minutes. Seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with
soap and water. If irritation occurs, seek medical
attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention immediately.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, CO2, powder or foam.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and ruthenium oxides
and chlorine containing compounds). However, there is no
experimental evidence to support the anticipated combustion
products.

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: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.


Avoid dust formation by damping down with water. Absorb
spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material (eg
sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original containers.


Clean the spillage area with water and detergent.


Waste material from the process will be removed to a
precious metal recovery refinery for reclamation.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used under
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166


When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be
used. e.g. a dust mask conforming to EN149 FFP1.


The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a
minimum.

Storage: Store at room temperature in a dry well-ventilated area,
under conditions of darkness.


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Contained within a plastic container, overpacked into UN
specification fibreboard cartons.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be negligible. Recovery
from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not
economically or technically feasible, and such waste
material will be disposed of by incineration, after precious
metal recovery. In principle, it may be possible to recover
larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent
use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None reported.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg sand or soil) should be returned to the
manufacturer for precious metal reclamation. The material
may also be disposed of by incineration in accordance with
local regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and
ruthenium oxides and chlorine containing compounds) could be
formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance would not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment.

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