ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Nitromethane is a skin, eye, and mucous membrane irritant. Anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, cough, dizziness, headache, CNS depression and dermatitis may occur. Experimental animals have developed focal necrosis of the liver and kidney, depressed hemoglobin and hematocrit concentrations, decreased weight gain, weakness, ataxia, and seizures.
- Thermal decomposition may release oxides of nitrogen with the potential for serious respiratory tract irritation and pulmonary edema.
- Methemoglobinemia and anuria are rare effects of exposure to both nitromethane and nitrocellulose.
