Excerpt from ERG Guide 129 [Flammable Liquids (Water-Miscible / Noxious)]: HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Those substances designated with a (P) may polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water. (ERG, 2016)

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50 Pimephales promelas (fathead minnows) 4.48 g/l/96 hr (95% confidence limit 4.10-4.88 g/l); age 30 days old, water hardness 47.0 mg/l (CaCO3), temp 27.7°C, pH 7.40, dissolved oxygen 5.4 mg/l, alkalinity 43.0 mg/l (CaCO3), tank vol: 1.0 l, additions: 36 vol/day (flow-through bioassay)
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: n-Propanol is readily degraded in laboratory tests using activated sludges, sewage seeds, and wastewater inocula(1-4). In 1 day test using 500 mg/l n-propanol and activated sludge at 20°C, a 37% theoretical oxygen demand (ThOD) was obtained(1). Biodegradation of 3, 7, and 10 mg/l with filtered sewage seed in fresh water resulted in a 64% ThOD in 5 days and 75% ThOD in 20 days(2). n-Propanol was 99% removed using acclimated activated sludge at 20°C (71 mg COD/g-hr rate)(3). Biodegradation of n-propanol in fresh water, using a domestic and synthetic waste water seed, resulted in a 93% ThOD and 97% ThOD (in 5 day tests), respectively(4). Biodegradation of 3, 7, and 10 mg/l with filtered sewage seed in salt water resulted in a 43% ThOD in 5 days and 73% ThOD in 20 days(2).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 3 was calculated for n-propanol(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.25(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of n-propanol is estimated as 33(SRC), using a measured log Kow of 0.25(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that n-propanol is expected to have very high mobility in soil(SRC).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

Highly flammable. Risk of serious damage to eyes. Vapours may cause drowsiness and dizziness.Hygroscopic (absorbs moisture from the air).
Potential Health Effects
Eye:
May cause moderate eye irritation. May result in corneal injury.
Skin:
May cause moderate skin irritation. Prolonged and/or repeated contact may cause defatting of the skin and dermatitis.

Chronic:
Prolonged or repeated skin contact may cause defatting and dermatitis. Chronic exposure may cause liver damage.

Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
  Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid.
Skin:
Get medical aid. Flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes.
Ingestion:

Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
  General Information:
Containers can build up pressure if exposed to heat and/or fire. As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Combustion generates toxic fumes. During a fire, irritating and highly toxic gases may be generated by thermal decomposition or combustion. Flammable Liquid. Can release vapors that form explosive mixtures at temperatures above the flashpoint.
Vapors may be heavier than air. They can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
Extinguishing Media:
Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers. Use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or alcohol-resistant foam. Do NOT use straight streams of water.

Section 6 - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
  General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment as indicated in Section 8.
Spills/Leaks:
Absorb spill with inert material (e.g. vermiculite, sand or earth), then place in suitable container. Avoid runoff into storm sewers and ditches which lead to waterways. Clean up spills immediately, observing precautions in the Protective Equipment section. Use water spray to disperse the gas/vapor. Remove all sources of ignition.
Provide ventilation.

Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
  Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Remove contaminated clothing and wash before reuse. Use with adequate ventilation. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Do not get on skin or in eyes. Do not ingest or inhale. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Storage:
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Do not store near combustible materials. Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Flammables-area.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
  Engineering Controls:
Facilities storing or utilizing this material should be equipped with an eyewash facility and a safety shower. Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
