Properties and Observations

White powder with pungent odour. Reacts with acids, evolving chlorine, an irritating, corrosive and toxic gas. Reacts fiercely with cyanides when heated or by friction. May form explosive mixtures with combustible material, powdered metals or ammonium compounds. These mixtures are sensitive to friction and are liable to ignite. When involved in a fire, may cause an explosion. Toxic if swallowed, by skin contact or by dust inhalation. Dust irritates mucous membranes. Contact with eyes will cause serious injury to the cornea (blindness) if not treated immediately by using copious amounts of water followed by medical attention.
