Cautions A

Acetonitrile

Acetonitrile is very volatile and extremely flammable. It is an irritant and a chemical asphyxiant that can exert its effects by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Treat cases of severe exposure as cyanide poisoning. Wear appropriate gloves and safety glasses. Use only in a chemical fume hood. Keep away from heat, sparks, and open flame.

PMSF

PMSF (Phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride) C7H7FO2S or C6H5CH2SO2F is a highly toxic cholinesterase inhibitor. It is extremely destructive to the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract, eyes, and skin. It may be fatal by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Wear appropriate gloves and safety glasses. Always use in a chemical fume hood. In case of contact, immediately flush eyes or skin with copious amounts of water and discard contaminated clothing.

SDS (Sodium dodecyl sulfate) is toxic, an irritant, and poses a risk of severe damage to the eyes. It may be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Wear appropriate gloves and safety goggles. Do not breathe the dust.

Sodium fluoride

Sodium fluoride NaF is highly toxic and causes severe irritation. It may be fatal by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Wear appropriate gloves and safety glasses. Use only in a chemical fume hood.

TFA (Trifluoroacetic acid; concentrated) may be harmful by inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Concentrated acids must be handled with great care. Decomposition causes toxic fumes. Wear appropriate gloves and a face mask. Use in a chemical fume hood.
