SECTION 2. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION

Emergency Overview
OSHA Hazards
No known OSHA hazards
HMIS Classification

Exclamation Mark - GHS07

Health Hazard: 2
Flammability: 0
Physical hazards: 0
NFPA Rating
Health Hazard: 2
Fire: 0
Reactivity Hazard: 0
Potential Health Effects
Eye Contact: May cause irritation or conjunctivitis by dissolving to form germanic acid, a weak acid.
Skin contact: May cause contact dermatitis.
Inhalation: Inhalation of particulates of will irritate the respiratory tract. Overexposure may produce coughing, headache and nausea.
Oral Toxicity: No data available
Chronic Toxicity: No specific information has been reported for this compound. Inhalation- Animal
studies of germanium compounds indicate morphological changes of the respiratory tract such as thickening of the alveolar partitions and hyperplasia of the lymphatic vessels around the bronchi and blood vessels. Ingestion- Rats fed 100ppm for 14 weeks showed stimulated growth. Those fed 1000ppm showed depressed growth and suffered 50% mortality. Kidney damage has been
reported in humans and animals. For selenium compounds, pallor, nervousness, depression and death have been reported for chronic exposure.
