General Description
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Clear colorless or faintly yellow slightly viscous liquid. Faint pleasant odor. (NTP, 1992)


The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts, air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
Air & Water Reactions
This chemical is sensitive to prolonged exposure to moisture. Insoluble in water.
Fire Hazard
This chemical is combustible. (NTP, 1992)
Health Hazard
SYMPTOMS: Symptoms of exposure to this compound may include eye and mucous membrane irritation. It can cause contact dermatitis, conjunctivitis, exacerbation of seborrhea and acne vulgaris. Eye contact may result in a smarting sensation. Ingestion of this material can cause central nervous system disturbances. Symptoms resulting from exposure to this compound include disorientation, staggering gait, slurred speech, crying out, episodes consisting of stiffening into a sitting position, extending of extremities, flexing of the fingers and dorsiflexing the toes. It may also cause jaundice, aplastic anemia, bleeding, convulsive seizure or death. It may irritate tender areas of the skin. It may also cause severe eye injury. Other symptoms are desquamation about the nose, dryness of face, a slight tingling sensation and a bullous eruption in the antecubital fossae. Irritation of the gastro-intestinal tract and coma are possible. It may cause purpuric or ecchymotic areas.

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: This compound is irritating to the skin, eyes and mucous membranes. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides. It may be harmful by inhalation or ingestion. (NTP, 1992)
Reactivity Profile
N,N-DIETHYL-M-TOLUAMIDE is incompatible with strong acids, strong bases and strong oxidizing agents. It hydrolyzes slowly in the presence of water. It has a solvent effect on most plastics, paints, and varnishes. It is also incompatible with rayon, acetate or dynel clothing. (NTP, 1992)
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
Potentially Incompatible Absorbents

No information available.

Response Recommendations

The Response Recommendation fields include isolation and evacuation distances, as well as recommendations for firefighting, non-fire response, protective clothing, and first aid. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Isolation and Evacuation
No information available.
Fires involving this material can be controlled with a dry chemical, carbon dioxide or Halon extinguisher. A water spray may also be used. (NTP, 1992)
Non-Fire Response
SMALL SPILLS AND LEAKAGE: If you spill this chemical, FIRST REMOVE ALL SOURCES OF IGNITION. Then, use absorbent paper to pick up all liquid spill material. Your contaminated clothing and absorbent paper should be sealed in a vapor-tight plastic bag for eventual disposal. Solvent wash all contaminated surfaces with 60-70% ethanol followed by washing with a soap and water solution. Do not reenter the contaminated area until the Safety Officer (or other responsible person) has verified that the area has been properly cleaned.

STORAGE PRECAUTIONS: You should store this chemical under ambient temperatures and protect it from moisture. Keep it away from oxidizing materials. If possible, it would be prudent to store this compound under inert atmosphere. (NTP, 1992)
Protective Clothing
RECOMMENDED RESPIRATOR: Where the neat test chemical is weighed and diluted, wear a NIOSH-approved half face respirator equipped with an organic vapor/acid gas cartridge (specific for organic vapors, HCl, acid gas and SO2) with a dust/mist filter. (NTP, 1992)
DuPont Tychem® Suit Fabrics

First Aid
EYES: First check the victim for contact lenses and remove if present. Flush victim's eyes with water or normal saline solution for 20 to 30 minutes while simultaneously calling a hospital or poison control center. Do not put any ointments, oils, or medication in the victim's eyes without specific instructions from a physician. IMMEDIATELY transport the victim after flushing eyes to a hospital even if no symptoms (such as redness or irritation) develop.

SKIN: IMMEDIATELY flood affected skin with water while removing and isolating all contaminated clothing. Gently wash all affected skin areas thoroughly with soap and water. If symptoms such as redness or irritation develop, IMMEDIATELY call a physician and be prepared to transport the victim to a hospital for treatment.

INHALATION: IMMEDIATELY leave the contaminated area; take deep breaths of fresh air. If symptoms (such as wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, or burning in the mouth, throat, or chest) develop, call a physician and be prepared to transport the victim to a hospital. Provide proper respiratory protection to rescuers entering an unknown atmosphere. Whenever possible, Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) should be used; if not available, use a level of protection greater than or equal to that advised under Protective Clothing.

INGESTION: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. If the victim is conscious and not convulsing, give 1 or 2 glasses of water to dilute the chemical and IMMEDIATELY call a hospital or poison control center. Be prepared to transport the victim to a hospital if advised by a physician. If the victim is convulsing or unconscious, do not give anything by mouth, ensure that the victim's airway is open and lay the victim on his/her side with the head lower than the body. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. IMMEDIATELY transport the victim to a hospital. (NTP, 1992)
