DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE Usage And Synthesis
Chemical Properties clear colorless to pale yellow liquid
General Description DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE is a colorless, nonflammable liquid. DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE may cause illness from ingestion and may be irritating to skin. If exposed to high temperatures DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE may emit toxic fumes. The primary hazard is the threat to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit its spread to the environment. Since DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE is a liquid DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE can easily penetrate the soil and contaminate groundwater and nearby streams. DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE is used as a fire extinguishing agent.
Reactivity Profile DIBROMODIFLUOROMETHANE is incompatible with the following: Chemically-active metals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, powdered aluminum, zinc & magnesium .
Health Hazard Inhalation of material may be harmful. Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes. Inhalation of Asbestos dust may have a damaging effect on the lungs. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Some liquids produce vapors that may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control may cause pollution.
Fire Hazard Some may burn but none ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated. Some may be transported hot.
