Precautions for Propionyl Chloride Precautions for Propionyl Chloride

The following points should be noted when using propionyl chloride in China


1. Overview of hazards

Health hazard: its vapor has a strong irritation to respiratory tract and eyes, and causes cough and dyspnea after inhalation. It can also cause skin burns.


Flammability hazard: this product is flammable, poisonous and highly irritating.


2. First aid measures

Skin contact: Immediately take off contaminated clothing and rinse with plenty of running water for at least 15 minutes. Go to a doctor.


Eye contact: Lift the eyelid immediately and rinse thoroughly with plenty of running water or normal saline for at least 15 minutes. Go to a doctor.


Inhalation: Quickly leave the scene to fresh air. Maintain airway patency. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If breathing stops, give artificial respiration immediately. Seek medical advice.


Ingestion: Rinse mouth with water and drink milk or egg white. Seek medical advice.

3. Fire control measures

Dangerous characteristics: the vapor of propionyl chloride cas no and air can form an explosive mixture, which is easy to burn  and explode when exposed  to open flames or high heat. It reacts violently with an oxidizer.It will release highly toxic phosgene when decomposed by heat.It reacts with water and water vapor and emits toxic corrosive gas. Its vapor is heavier than air and can diffuse at a lower place to a considerable distance, and will ignite and strile back in case of fire. In case of high heat, the pressure in the container will increase and there is a risk of cracking and explosion.

 

Hazardous combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride, phosgene.

 

Fire fighting method: Firemen must wear filtered gas mask (full face masks) or isolated respirators, wear full body fire and gas suit, and put out the fire upwind. Remove the container from the fire as much as possible into an open area. Evacuate immediately if the container in the fire has changed color or produced sound from the safety relief device.


Extinguishing agent: dry powder, carbon dioxide, sandy soil. Do not use water or foam to extinguish fire.
