SECTION 2. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
Warning! Causes eye and skin irritation. Causes digestive and respiratory tract irritation. May cause liver and kidney damage.
Target Organs: Kidneys, liver, respiratory system, eyes, skin.
Potential Health Effects
Eye: May cause eye irritation and possible damage.
Skin: Contact with skin causes irritation and possible burns, especially if the skin is wet or moist. Contact with the skin may cause skin lesions which are characterized by cracking of the skin and the development of slow-healing ulcers.
Ingestion: May cause severe gastrointestinal tract irritation with nausea, vomiting and possible burns. May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause central nervous system effects and/or neurological effects. May cause greenish-black tongue discoloration due to deposition of vanadium salts. Ingestion of large amounts may cause an increase in blood pressure.
Inhalation: May cause liver and kidney damage. May cause irritation of the respiratory tract with burning pain in the nose and throat, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and pulmonary edema.
Chronic: Chronic inhalation may cause effects similar to those of acute inhalation. May cause liver and kidney damage. May produce scattered allergy-like eczematous skin lesions symptomatic of vanadium toxicity.

SECTION 4. FIRST AID MEASURES
Eyes: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately.
Skin: Get medical aid immediately. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.
Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting. 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 immediately.
Inhalation: Get medical aid immediately. Remove from exposure and move to fresh air immediately. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Do NOT use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Notes to Physician: Green coloration of the tongue, resulting from the deposition of vanadium salts is an indicator of exposure; however, may be absent even in prolonged exposure..
Antidote: There exists several chelation agents. The determination of there use should be made only by qualified medical personnel.
SECTION 5. FIREFIGHTING 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. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Use extinguishing media appropriate to the surrounding fire. Substance is noncombustible.

Epidemiology: Mutation data has been reported.
Teratogenicity: No information found
Reproductive Effects: No information found
Mutagenicity: At doses of 0.32 to 4.0 æg V/ml, vanadyl sulfate induced increases in the sister chromatid exchange frequency, in Chinese hamster ovary cells, with or without the addition of rat hepatic S9 mix. It also induced chromosomal abberations in the cells at doses close to the TC50, 16 æg V/ml.
Neurotoxicity: No information found
SECTION 12. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
Ecotoxicity: Fish: Bluegill/Sunfish: 6mg/L; 96H; No data available.
Environmental: Vanadium occurs in water in several chemical forms of which the dioxyvanadium cation VO(2+) & the vanadate anion VO(-4) are readily soluble. However, the mobility of those ions in water is probably low because of easy adsorption on clay & precipitation with organic matter. /Dioxyvanadium cation & vanadate anion.
Physical: No data available.
