3. HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
Hydrogen tetrabromoaurate is acidic in nature and will be corosive to the
eyes and mucous membranes. Skin contact will produce a purple stain and
will cause damage and possible corrosion to the epidermis.
If heated this material will decompose, producing Bromine and Hydrogen
bromide 聽

4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Over-exposure may produce the following symptoms -
First Aid
Inhalation - irritating to the eyes, nose, throat and respiratory tract, producing
coughing.
Ingestion - nausea and vomiting.
Eye contact - redness, irritation, blurred vision and pain.
Skin - redness and irritation with possible tissue damage. 聽 聽

remove from exposure and allow to rest in fresh air. Seek medical advice. 聽
First Aid - Inhalation
First Aid - Ingestion rinse mouth with clean water and give water or milk to drink. Seek medical
attention.
irrigate with water or isotonic saline solution for 15 minutes. Seek medical

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
This material is supplied in a stable condition. Caution should be excercised if
this material comes into contact with Ammonia or ammonium salts as Gold
fulminate which, is a heat, friction or impact sensitive explosive may be
formed.
If exposed to air, this material will absorb moisture and may coalesce into a
hard lump.

11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
There is no specific toxicological data available for this material. The data
available for similar halogeno-gold compounds indicate that the oral toxicity is
expected to be within the range 500 - 2000 mg/kg, i.e. Harmful.
Users should note that the chloro analogue is reported as causing mutagenic
effects in bacteria.
