Dichloromethane:acetic acid solution
Dichloromethane – also known as methylene dichloride – is an organic compound with a sweet aroma, commonly used as a solvent in many different industrial processes. In this case, it’s sold mixed with acetic acid, forming a colourless solution with a strong penetrating odour. Due to the presence of Dichloromethane, it’s considered a dangerous solution and must always be handled with care.
Symptoms caused by exposure to high concentration of vapours released from this solution – by inhalation, ingestion or absorption through the skin – may lead to headaches, nausea and vomiting, or even renal and liver failure in extreme cases.
Safe handling procedures include the use of protective clothing, safety goggles and PVA gloves in a well ventilated area. In terms of storage, this solution is stable at room temperature, but contact with several metals, alcohols and glycols must be avoided, to prevent the formation of hazardous decomposition products, including hydrogen chloride (HCl) and phosgene (COCl2). In addition, this solution must be disposed of safely, as it may affect the acidity levels in water sources, with potential risks to aquatic life.
