SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES

Inhalation: Call a poison center or doctor if you feel unwell. Effects of exposure (inhalation) to substance may be
delayed. Inhalation of vapors or contact with substance will result in contamination and potential harmful
effects. Move victim to fresh air. Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if
breathing is difficult. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that
medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Skin contact: Call a poison center or doctor if you feel unwell. Effects of exposure (skin contact) to substance may be
delayed. Remove and wash contaminated clothing before re-use. Remove and isolate contaminated
clothing and shoes. In case of contact with substance, immediately flush skin with running water for at
least 20 minutes. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the
material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Eye contact: IMMEDIATELY flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes, keeping eyelids open. Contact with
material may irritate or burn eyes. Call emergency medical service. Move victim to fresh air. Check for and
remove any contact lenses. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat symptomatically and supportively. Effects of
exposure to substance may be delayed. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s)
involved and take precautions to protect themselves.
Ingestion: Harmful if swallowed. Do not induce vomiting with out medical advice. Effects of exposure (ingestion) to
substance may be delayed. Call a physician or Poison Control Center immediately. Do not use mouth-tomouth
method if victim ingested the substance; give artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask
equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. Loosen tight clothing such as a
collar, tie, belt or waistband. If a person vomits place them in the recovery position so that vomit will not
reenter the mouth and throat. Rinse mouth. Keep victim warm and quiet. Treat symptomatically and
supportively. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to
protect themselves.
Symptoms/effects:
Acute: Redness.
Delayed: May have effects on the respiratory tract.
Immediate medical attention: WARNING: It might be hazardous to the person providing aid to give mouth-to-mouth respiration, because
the inhaled material is harmful. If breathing has stopped, perform artificial respiration. Use first aid
treatment according to the nature of the injury. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s)
involved and take precautions to protect themselves.


SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING MEASURES

Suitable extinguishing media: Dry chemical, CO2 , water spray, or alcohol-resistant foam. Consult with local fire authorities before
attempting large scale fire fighting operations.
Hazardous combustion products: These products include: Halogenated compounds
Other specific hazards: Closed containers may explode from heat of a fire.
Special precautions for fire-fighters:
Use water spray or fog; do not use straight streams. Dike fire-control water for later disposal; do not scatter the material. CAUTION: All these products
have a very low flash point: Use of water spray when fighting fire may be inefficient. Do not use straight streams. Runoff to sewer may create fire or
explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk.
Special protective equipment for fire-fighters:
Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Structural fire fighters' protective clothing provides limited protection in fire situations
ONLY; it may not be effective in spill situations. Wear chemical protective clothing which is specifically recommended by the manufacturer. It may
provide little or no thermal protection.


SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions: Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Keep people away from and upwind of spill/leak. Use sparkproof
tools and explosion-proof equipment. Remove all sources of ignition. Do not touch damaged
containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing (Section 8). Warn
unnecessary personnel to move away. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Ensure adequate ventilation.
Isolate the hazard area and deny entry to unnecessary and unprotected personnel.
Personal protective equipment: Wear eye protection (splash goggles) and face protection (full length face shield). Lab coat. Vapor
respirator. Be sure to use a MSHA/NIOSH approved respirator or equivalent. Wear protective gloves
(nitrile).
Emergency procedures: Isolate area until gas has dispersed. Do not clean-up or dispose except under supervision of a specialist.
In case of a spill and/or a leak, always shut off any sources of ignition, ventilate the area, and excercise
caution. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective
clothing. Warn personnel to move away. Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if
needed.
Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up:
ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks, or flames in immediate area). All equipment used when handling the product must be
grounded. Stop leak if without risk. Ventilate the area. Absorb with an inert material and put the spilled material in an appropriate waste disposal
container. Use clean non-sparking tools to collect absorbed material.
Environmental precautions:
Keep away from living quarters. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Water runoff can cause environmental damage. Prevent entry into
sewers, basements or confined areas; dike if needed.


SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling: Do NOT breath gas, fumes, vapor, or spray. Do not ingest. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Keep away
from heat and sources of ignition. Use explosion-proof equipment. Use only non-sparking hand tool when
handling this product. Ground all equipment containing material. Take measures to prevent build up of
electrostatic charge. Good general ventilation should be sufficient to control airborne levels. Keep
container dry. Handle and open container with care. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face
protection. When using do not eat, drink, or smoke. Keep away from sources of ignition.
Conditions for safe storage: Store locked up. Keep containers tightly closed in a cool, well-ventilated place. Keep away from sources of
ignition. Store and use away from heat, sparks, open flame, or any other ignition source. Keep away from
incompatibles. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent
leakage. Avoid prolonged storage periods. Store under inert gas (e.g. Argon). Moisture sensitive.
Storage incompatibilities: Combustible substances, Store away from oxidizing agents


SECTION 8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

The number of electrons in each of Iodine's shells is 2, 8, 18, 18, 7 and its electron configuration is [Kr] 4d10 5s2 5p5. The iodine atom has a radius of 140 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 198 pm. In its elemental form, iodine has a lustrous metallic gray appearance as a solid and a violet appearance as a gas or liquid solution. Elemental IodineIodine forms compounds with many elements, but is less active than the other halogens. It dissolves readily in chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, or carbon disulfide. Iodine compounds are important in organic chemistry and very useful in the field of medicine. Iodine was discovered and first isolated by Bernard Courtois in 1811. The name Iodine is derived from the Greek word "iodes" meaning violet.

Elemental Samarium PictureSamarium is not found as free element in nature. It is found in the minerals cerite, gadolinite, samarskite, monazite and bastnäsite. Samarium is classified as a rare earth element and is the 40th most abundant element in the Earth's crust. Samarium was discovered and first isolated by Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1879. It is named after the mineral samarskite, the mineral from which it was isolated.
