Appearance: colorless liquid. Flash Point: 12 deg C.
Warning! May cause central nervous system
depression. May form explosive peroxides. Flammable liquid
and vapor. Hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the
air). Causes respiratory tract irritation. Aspiration hazard if
swallowed. Can enter lungs and cause damage. This material has been
reported to be susceptible to autoxidation and therefore should be
classified as peroxidizable. Causes eye irritation. Breathing vapors
may cause drowsiness and dizziness. Prolonged or repeated contact
causes defatting of the skin with irritation, dryness, and cracking.
Target Organs: Central nervous system,
respiratory system, eyes, skin.
Potential Health Effects
Produces irritation, characterized by a burning sensation, redness,
tearing, inflammation, and possible corneal injury. May cause
transient corneal injury.
In the eyes of a rabbit, 0.1 ml of 70% isopropyl alcohol caused conjun
ctivitis, iritis, and corneal opacity.
May cause irritation with pain and stinging, especially if the skin
is abraded. Isopropanol has a low potential to cause allergic skin
reactions; however, rare cases of allergic contact dermatitis have
been reported. May be absorbed through intact skin.
Dermal absorption has been considered toxicologically insignificant. T
he cases of deep coma associated with skin contact are thought to be a
consequence of gross isopropanol vapor inhalation in rooms with inade
quate ventilation, rather than being attributable to percutaneous abso
rption of isopropanol per se.
Causes gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and
diarrhea. May cause kidney damage. May cause central nervous system
depression, characterized by excitement, followed by headache,
dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea. Advanced stages may cause
collapse, unconsciousness, coma and possible death due to
respiratory failure. Aspiration of material into the lungs may cause
chemical pneumonitis, which may be fatal.
The probable oral lethal dose in humans is 240 ml (2696 mg/kg), but in
gestion of only 20 ml (224 mg/kg) has caused poisoning.
Inhalation of high concentrations may cause central nervous system
effects characterized by nausea, headache, dizziness, unconsciousness
and coma. May cause narcotic effects in high concentration. Causes
upper respiratory tract irritation. Inhalation of vapors may cause
drowsiness and dizziness.
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause defatting and
