UN Class or Division /  Subsidiary Risks

BIS(CHLOROMETHYL)ETHER
542-88-1

The vapour mixes well with air, explosive mixtures are easily formed

The substance decomposes on heating and on contact with water, producing toxic and corrosive fumes of hydrogen chloride, formaldehyde • Attacks many metals, resins and plastics

6.1

CHLOROMETHYL METHYL ETHER
107-30-2

The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible

On combustion, forms toxic gases and vapours (phosgene and hydrogen chloride) • The substance decomposes on contact with water producing hydrogen chloride and formaldehyde • Attacks many metals in presence of water

6.1/ 3

DICHLOROETHYL ETHER
111-44-4

6.1

DICHLOROISOPROPYL ETHER
108-60-1

6.1

For UN Class: 1.5 = very insensitive substances which have a mass explosion hazard; 2.1 = flammable gas; 2.3 = toxic gas; 3 = flammable liquid; 4.1 = flammable solid; 4.2 = substance liable to spontaneous combustion; 4.3 = substance which in contact with water emits flammable gases; 5.1 = oxidizing substance; 6.1 = toxic; 7 = radioactive; 8 = corrosive substance
