Reactivity Data
Stability: Very stable.
Conditions to avoid:
in the event of breakage of the quartz containing cells, use the same
precautions as with water spillage.

Hazardous Polymerization Occurrence:
Conditions to Avoid (Polymerization):

Health Hazard Data
Route of Entry - Inhalation: no (sealed cells).
Route of Entry - Skin:
no (sealed cells).
Route of Entry - Ingestion:
no (sealed cells).
Health Hazard, acute and chronic:
Due to the small size and volume of the sealed cell and the
complete sealing of the material in quartz cell the only contact that can be made to the benzene is
through the breakage of the cell. In that case the hazard due to the chemicals is the same as with
water. The quartz shards would be more hazardous and must be handled as with any glass breakage. Carcinogenicity: none reported for the concentration and quantity of Materials.
Signs and symptoms of exposure:
Medical Conditions aggravated by exposure:
Emergency and First Aid Procedures:
In the event of breakage of any of cells, wash with water
and safely dispose of the quartz pieces.

Precautions for Safe Handling and Use
Steps if material Released/Spill: In the event of breakage of any of cells, wash with water and safely
dispose of the quartz pieces.
Waste disposable method:
The only waste generated by the breakage would be the quartz container.
Dispose of the quartz pieces as you would for any broken laboratory glassware.
Precautions to be taken in Handling and Storing:
do not break the quartz cells.
Other Precautions:
Use the same handling precautions that you would for any fine optical component.
This includes not dropping or scratching the optical surfaces.

Control Measures
Respiratory Protection: At the volumes and concentrations of the materials in this set there are no
none required.
Protective Gloves:
Chemical resistant gloves.
Eye Protection:
Chemical resistant goggles.
Other protective equipment:
Have immediate availability of eye wash.
