4.1 Description of necessary first-aid measures

General advice

Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled

Fresh air, rest.

In case of skin contact

Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap.

In case of eye contact

First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

If swallowed

Rinse mouth.

4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

Inhalation causes irritation of respiratory tract, cough, mild depression, cardiac arrhythmias. Aspiration causes severe lung irritation, coughing, pulmonary edema; excitement followed by depression. Ingestion causes nausea, vomiting, swelling of abdomen, headache, depression. (USCG, 1999)

Excerpt from ERG Guide 128 [Flammable Liquids (Water-Immiscible)]: Inhalation or contact with material may irritate or burn skin and eyes. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution. (ERG, 2016)

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

Immediate first aid: Ensure that adequate decontamination has been carried out. If patient is not breathing, start artificial respiration, preferably with a demand valve resuscitator, bag-valve-mask device, or pocket mask, as trained. Perform CPR if necessary. Immediately flush contaminated eyes with gently flowing water. Do not induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, lean patient forward or place on the left side (head-down position, if possible) to maintain an open airway and prevent aspiration. Keep patient quiet and maintain normal body temperature. Obtain medical attention. /Aliphatic hydrocarbons and related compounds/

5.Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Excerpt from ERG Guide 128 [Flammable Liquids (Water-Immiscible)]: 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. Substance may be transported hot. For hybrid vehicles, ERG Guide 147 (lithium ion batteries) or ERG Guide 138 (sodium batteries) should also be consulted. If molten aluminum is involved, refer to ERG Guide 169. (ERG, 2016)

  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: Indigenous soil microbes will biodegrade petroleum hydrocarbons under aerobic conditions(1). A quarter of the microorganisms isolated from gasoline-contaminated groundwater, most notably of the Nocardia sp., supported growth of 2-methylpentane(2). Generally iso-alkanes are significantly more resistant to microbial attack than n-alkanes(3). However, a soil microorganism, Corynebacterium sp. oxidized 2-methylpentane, at about the same rate as n-pentane, although at a significantly lower rate than n-hexane(3). A mean half-life of 5.9 days was reported for all detectable hydrocarbons in an aerobic biodegradation study of gasoline in water from a domestic sewage treatment plant(4). The biodegradation half-lives of the C6-saturates compound group (n-hexane, 2-methylpentane, 3-methylpentane, methylcylcopentane and cyclohexane), determined from biodegradation tests with water accommodated fractions(WAF) of Statjofrd fresh oil, Aquila fresh oil, and Marine diesel in seawater at 13°C, were 2.8, 1.7, and 3.5 days respectively (without correction for lag phase) (5). The mean half-life from results for all three oils was determined to be 2.7 days for the C6-saturates group(5). 2-Methylpentane, and 10 other components of gasoline were completely degraded in a screening study using an activated sludge inoculum in less than 34 days(6). A mixture containing isopentane, pentane, cyclopentane, 2,3-dimethylbutane, 2-methylpentane, 3-methylpentane, and cyclohexane, showed little degradation over the course of 30 days in a sediment/groundwater obtained from a contaminated jet fuel site in Oscoda, MI(7). 2-Methylpentane, present at 100 mg/L, reached 93% of its theoretical BOD in 4 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in a screening test assessing biodegradation in water(8). Therefore, 2-methylpentane is confirmed to be readily biodegradable according to the standard test of the Japanese Ministry of Industry and Trade (MITI) (8).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 61 was calculated in fish for 2-methylpentane(SRC), using an estimated log Kow of 3.21(1) and a regression-derived equation(1). According to a classification scheme(2), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is moderate(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc of 2-methylpentane can be estimated to be 610(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that 2-methylpentane is expected to have low mobility in soil. A sorption experiment using lignite samples resulted in a log Kd of 2.92 for 2-methylpentane(3).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.
