Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution. (ERG, 2016)


4.3

Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

Administer oxygen by nonrebreather mask at 10 to 15 l/min. Monitor for pulmonary edema and treat if necessary … Monitor for shock and treat if necessary … Anticipate seizures and treat if necessary … For eye contamination, flush eyes immediately with water. Irrigate each eye continuously with normal saline during transport … Do not use emetics. For ingestion, rinse mouth and administer 5 ml/kg up to 200 ml of water for dilution if the patient can swallow, has a strong gag reflex, and does not drool. Administer activated charcoal … Cover skin bumps with sterile dressings after decontamination … Halogenated aliphatic hydrocarbons and related compounds

SECTION 5: Fire-fighting measures


5.1

Suitable extinguishing media

Excerpt from ERG Guide 151 [Substances – Toxic (Non-combustible)]: SMALL FIRE: Dry chemical, CO2 or water spray. LARGE FIRE: Water spray, fog or regular foam. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk. Dike fire-control water for later disposal; do not scatter the material. Use water spray or fog; do not use straight streams. FIRE INVOLVING TANKS OR CAR/TRAILER LOADS: Fight fire from maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Do not get water inside containers. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank. ALWAYS stay away from tanks engulfed in fire. For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn. (ERG, 2016)


5.2

Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Excerpt from ERG Guide 151 [Substances – Toxic (Non-combustible)]: Non-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. (ERG, 2016)

Persistence and degradability

Based upon the highly halogenated structure of tetrabromomethane, biodegradation is expected to be slow(1).


12.3

Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 86 was calculated for tetrabromomethane(SRC), using a log Kow of 3.42(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is moderate.


12.4

Mobility in soil

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc for tetrabromomethane can be estimated to be about 49(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that tetrabromomethane is expected to have very high mobility in soil.

Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to
a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration

CarbonCarbon (from Latin: carbo “coal”) is a chemical element with the symbol C and atomic number 6.
It is nonmetallic and tetravalent—making four electrons available to form covalent chemical bonds. It belongs to group 14 of the periodic table.
Carbon is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth’s crust, and the fourth most abundant element in the universe by mass after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen.
Carbon’s abundance, its unique diversity of organic compounds, and its unusual ability to form polymers at the temperatures commonly encountered on Earth enables this element to serve as a common element of all known life.

BromineBromine is a chemical element with symbol Br and atomic number 35.
It is the third-lightest halogen, and is a fuming red-brown liquid at room temperature that evaporates readily to form a similarly coloured gas.
Its properties are thus intermediate between those of chlorine and iodine.
Isolated independently by two chemists, Carl Jacob Löwig (in 1825) and Antoine Jérôme Balard (in 1826), its name was derived from the Ancient Greek βρῶμος (“stench”), referencing its sharp and disagreeable smell.
