Ingredient Name CAS RegistryNumber Typical Wt. % OSHA
n-Dodecyl mercaptan 112-55-0 99.5% Y
The substance(s) marked with a "Y" in the OSHA column, are identified as hazardous chemicals according to the
criteria of the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200)

This material is classified as hazardous under Federal OSHA regulation.

The components of this product are all on the TSCA Inventory list.


3 HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Emergency Overview
Colorless liquid; heavy offensive mercaptan odor.
DANGER!
CAUSES EYE BURNS. MAY CAUSE BLINDNESS.
MAY CAUSE NAUSEA, HEADACHE OR DIZZINESS.


Potential Health Effects

Inhalation and skin contact are expected to be the primary routes of occupational exposure to this material. Based on
single exposure animal tests, it is considered to be slightly toxic to practically non-toxic if swallowed or inhaled, no more
than slightly toxic if absorbed through skin, corrosive to eyes and non-irritating to skin. This material has a strong
objectionable odor that may cause nausea, headache, or dizziness. Vapor or aerosol can be severely irritating to the
respiratory tract leading to lung injury. Medical conditions which may be aggravated by overexposure to this material
include lung disease or limited respiratory capacity.

4 FIRST AID MEASURES

IF IN EYES, immediately flush with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.

IF ON SKIN, immediately wash with soap and plenty of water. Remove contaminated clothing and shoes.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur. Wash clothing before reuse. Thoroughly clean shoes before reuse.

IF SWALLOWED, do NOT induce vomiting. Give water to drink. Get medical attention immediately. NEVER
GIVE ANYTHING BY MOUTH TO AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON.

IF INHALED, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give
oxygen. Get medical attention.


5 FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Fire and Explosive Properties
Auto-Ignition Temperature NE
Flash Point >200F Flash Point Method TCC
Flammable Limits- Upper NE
NE
Lower
Extinguishing Media
Use water spray, carbon dioxide, foam or dry chemical.

Fire Fighting Instructions
Use water spray to cool containers exposed to fire. Contain run-off from fire. Fire fighters and others who may
be exposed to products of combustion should wear full fire fighting turn out gear (full Bunker Gear) and self-
contained breathing apparatus (pressure demand NIOSH approved or equivalent). Fire fighting equipment
should be thoroughly decontaminated after use
Fire and Explosion Hazards
When burned, the following hazardous products of combustion can occur:
Oxides of carbon
Sulfur oxides
Hydrogen sulfide

6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

In Case of Spill or Leak
Ventilate the area. Contain spill by building a dike using absorbent material. Consult with environmental
engineer or professional to determine if neutralization is appropriate and for handling procedures for residual
materials. Do not use solid bleach for neutralization, as fire or violent reaction can occur. Collect the liquid
and solid absorbent into a drum approved for waste disposal. Flush area with water. Consult a regulatory
specialist to determine appropriate state or local reporting requirements, for assistance in waste
characterization and/or hazardous waste disposal and other requirements listed in pertinent environmental
permits.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Handling
Do not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing.
Keep container closed.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Use only with adequate ventilation.
Wash thoroughly after handling.



Emptied container retains vapor and product residue. Observe all labeled safeguards until container is
cleaned, reconditioned or destroyed.

Storage
This material is not hazardous under normal storage conditions; however, material should be stored in
closed containers, in a secure area to prevent container damage and subsequent spillage.


8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION

Engineering Controls
Investigate engineering techniques to reduce exposures. Provide ventilation if necessary to minimize
exposure. Dilution ventilation is acceptable, but local mechanical exhaust ventilation preferred, if practical, at
sources of air contamination such as open process equipment.

Eye / Face Protection
Where there is potential for eye contact, wear a face shield, chemical goggles, and have eye flushing
equipment immediately available.

Skin Protection
Wear appropriate chemical resistant protective clothing and chemical resistant gloves to prevent skin
contact. Consult glove manufacturer to determine appropriate type glove material for given application.
Wear chemical goggles, a face shield, and chemical resistant clothing such as a rubber apron when
splashing may occur. Rinse immediately if skin is contaminated. Remove contaminated clothing promptly
and wash before reuse. Clean protective equipment before reuse. Provide a safety shower at any location
where skin contact can occur. Wash skin thoroughly after handling.

Respiratory Protection
Avoid breathing vapor or mist. Where airborne exposure is likely, use NIOSH approved respiratory
protection equipment appropriate to the material and/or its components. Full facepiece equipment is
recommended and, if used, replaces need for face shield and/or chemical goggles. If exposures cannot be
kept at a minimum with engineering controls, consult respirator manufacturer to determine appropriate type
equipment for given application. Observe respirator use limitations specified by NIOSH or the manufacturer.
For emergency and other conditions where there may be a potential for significant exposure, use an
approved full face positive-pressure, self-contained breathing apparatus or positive-pressure airline with
auxiliary self-contained air supply. Respiratory protection programs must comply with 29 CFR 搂 1910.134.

11 TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION


Skin allergy was observed in guinea pigs following repeated exposure in some tests, but not others. A potential
for irritation and allergic reactions in humans has been reported. Following repeated inhalation exposures, rats
and mice exhibited eye, nasal and respiratory tract irritation and breathing difficulties, followed by death which
was associated with lung damage. A repeated inhalation exposure study in mice produced microscopic liver
changes. Following a longer-term inhalation exposure study, rats showed reduced growth, reduced liver and
adrenal function, general congestion of the internal organs and microscopic changes in lungs, liver, kidney,
heart and brain. No birth defects were observed in the offspring of rats exposed by inhalation during pregnancy,
even at amounts which produced significant adverse effects on the mothers. No genetic changes were
observed in tests using bacteria or animal cells.
