monoxide and carbon dioxide.

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

Basic treatment: Establish a patent airway (oropharyngeal or nasopharyngeal airway, if needed). Suction if necessary. Watch for signs of

respiratory insufficiency and assist ventilations if necessary. Administer oxygen by nonrebreather mask at 10 to 15 L/min. Monitor for pulmonary

edema and treat if necessary ... . Monitor for shock and treat if necessary ... . Anticipate seizures and treat if necessary ... . For eye contamination,

flush eyes immediately with water. Irrigate each eye continuously with 0.9% saline (NS) during transport ... . Do not use emetics. For ingestion,

rinse mouth and administer 5 ml/kg up to 200 ml of water for dilution if the patient can swallow, has a strong gag reflex, and does not drool.

12.1 Toxicity

Toxicity to fish: no data available

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: An aerobic biodegradation study using gram-negative asporogenous rod bacterium isolated from soil by enrichment on triethylene

glycol exhibited borderline growth (scarcely detectable growth, not reproducible) with diethylene glycol diethyl ether(1). In a screening study using

a sewage seed, diethylene glycol diethyl ether (concentration not specified) had a 10 day BOD of 0.10 g/g (4.2% theoretical BOD) at 20°C(2).

Diethylene glycol diethyl ether had a 21.7% COD removal at 30°C from a starting concentration of 600 mg COD/L (time period not given)

indicating little degradation compared to 95% degradation of ethylene glycol monophenyl ether(3).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 3 was calculated in fish for diethylene glycol diethyl ether(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.39(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 diethylene glycol diethyl ether is estimated as 39(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.39(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According

to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that diethylene glycol diethyl ether is expected to have very high mobility in soil.

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods


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.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it

unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible

packaging materials.
