Material Safety Data Sheet D-(+)-Galactose Anhydrous ACC# 10265 Section 1 - Chemical Product and Company Identification MSDS Name: D-(+)-Galactose Anhydrous Catalog Numbers: S80022, BP656-500, G1-100 Synonyms: D-Galactopyranose Company Identification: Fisher Scientific 1 Reagent Lane Fair Lawn, NJ 07410 For information, call: 201-796-7100 Emergency Number: 201-796-7100 For CHEMTREC assistance, call: 800-424-9300 For International CHEMTREC assistance, call: 703-527-3887 Section 2 - Composition, Information on Ingredients CAS# Chemical Name Percent EINECS/ELINCS 59-23-4 D-Galactose ca. 100% 200-416-4 Section 3 - Hazards Identification EMERGENCY OVERVIEW Appearance: white. Caution! May cause eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation. This is expected to be a low hazard for usual industrial handling. Target Organs: None. Potential Health Effects Eye: May cause eye irritation. Dust may cause mechanical irritation. Skin: May cause skin irritation. Low hazard for usual industrial handling. Ingestion: May cause gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Low hazard for usual industrial handling. Inhalation: May cause respiratory tract irritation. Low hazard for usual industrialhandling. Chronic: No information found. Section 4 - First Aid Measures Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. If irritation develops, get medi cal aid. Skin: Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash clothing before reuse. Ingestion: If victim is conscious and alert, give 2-4 cupfuls of milk or water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Get medical aid. Inhalation: Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical aid if cough or other symptoms appear. Notes to Physician: Treat symptomatically. Section 5 - Fire Fighting Measures General Information: As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Dusts at sufficient concentrations can form explosive mixtures with air. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas. Extinguishing Media: Use agent most appropriate to extinguish fire. Use water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam. Flash Point: Not applicable. Autoignition Temperature: Not applicable. Explosion Limits, Lower:Not available. Upper: Not available. NFPA Rating: (estimated) Health: 1; Flammability: 0; Instability: 0 Section 6 - Accidental Release Measures General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8. Spills/Leaks: Vacuum or sweep up material and place into a suitable disposal container. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Avoid generating dusty conditions. Provide ventilation.Section 7 - Handling and Storage Handling: Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Storage: Store in a tightly closed container. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Section 8 - Exposure Controls, Personal Protection Engineering Controls: Use adequate ventilation to keep airborne concentrations low. Exposure Limits Chemical Name ACGIH NIOSH OSHA - Final PELs D-Galactose none listed none listed none listed OSHA Vacated PELs: D-Galactose: No OSHA Vacated PELs are listed for this chemical. Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: Wear appropriate protective eyeglasses or chemical safety goggles as described by OSHA's eye and face protection regulations in 29 CFR 1910.133 or European Standard EN166. Skin: Wear appropriate protective gloves to prevent skin exposure. Clothing: Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure. Respirators: Follow the OSHA respirator regulations found in 29 CFR 1910.134 or European Standard EN 149. Use a NIOSH/MSHA or European Standard EN 149 approved respirator if exposure limits are exceeded or if irritation or other symptoms are experienced. Section 9 - Physical and Chemical Properties Physical State: Solid Appearance: white Odor: odorless pH: Not available. Vapor Pressure: Negligible. Vapor Density: 6.2Evaporation Rate:Negligible. Viscosity: Not available. Boiling Point: Not available. Freezing/Melting Point:167 deg C Decomposition Temperature:Not available. Solubility: 680 g/l (25 C) in water. Specific Gravity/Density:Not available. Molecular Formula:C6H12O6 Molecular Weight:180.0804 Section 10 - Stability and Reactivity Chemical Stability: Stable under normal temperatures and pressures. Conditions to Avoid: Incompatible materials, dust generation, excess heat. Incompatibilities with Other Materials: Oxidizing agents. Hazardous Decomposition Products: Carbon monoxide, irritating and toxic fumes and gases, carbon dioxide. Hazardous Polymerization: Has not been reported. Section 11 - Toxicological Information RTECS#: CAS# 59-23-4: LW5490000 LD50/LC50: Not available. Carcinogenicity: CAS# 59-23-4: Not listed by ACGIH, IARC, NTP, or CA Prop 65. Epidemiology: No information available. Teratogenicity: Effects on Newborn: Germ cell effects, oral-rat TDLo=1000g/kg; Growth Statistics, oral-rat TDLo=440g/kg; Live birth index, oral-mouse TDLo=165g/kg. Embryo or fetus, oral-rat TDLo=240g/kg. Reproductive Effects: Fertility: Abortion, oral-mouse TDLo=1260g/kg. Mutagenicity: No information available. Neurotoxicity: No information available. Other Studies: Section 12 - Ecological Information No information available.Section 13 - Disposal Considerations Chemical waste generators must determine whether a discarded chemical is classified as a hazardous waste. US EPA guidelines for the classification determination are listed in 40 CFR Parts 261.3. Additionally, waste generators must consult state and local
