Pyridine, an organic compound, C5H5N, is a six-member heterocyclic compound containing a nitrogen heteroatom. It can be regarded as a benzene molecule (CH) replaced by N compound, so it is also called nitrobenzene, colorless or slightly yellow liquid, has a foul smell. Pyridine and its homologues are found in bone tar, coal tar, gas, shale oil, and petroleum. Pyridine is used industrially as a denaturing agent, as a dye aid, and as a raw material for the synthesis of a range of products, including pharmaceuticals, disinfectants, dyes, etc.
200KG/Drum, or as customized package
Warehouse ventilation and low temperature drying; separate from oxidants and acids.
1 Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media
Small (incipient) fires must be extinguished with alcohol resistant foam, dry chemical powder or carbon dioxide. Large amounts of water are ineffective. Cool containers with large amounts of water.
2 Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Carbon oxides, Nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Pay attention to flashback.
Vapors are heavier than air and may spread along floors.
Development of hazardous combustion gases or vapours possible in the event of fire.
Forms explosive mixtures with air at ambient temperatures.
3 Advice for firefighters
Stay in danger area only with self-contained breathing apparatus. Prevent skin contact by keeping a safe distance or by wearing suitable protective clothing.
Remove container from danger zone and cool with water. Suppress (knock down) gases/vapors/mists with a water spray jet. Prevent fire extinguishing water from contaminating surface water or the ground water system.
