Uranyl Zinc Acetate MSDS

Safety (MSDS) data for uranyl zinc acetate





Synonyms: zinc bis(acetato-O)dioxouranate, zinc uranyl acetate


Molecular formula: ZnUO4(CH3COO)2

CAS No: 10138-94-0

EINECS No: 233-390-8


Physical data

Appearance: yellow crystalline solid

Melting point:

Boiling point:

Vapour density:

Vapour pressure:

Density (g cm-3):

Flash point:

Stable. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.


Very toxic if swallowed or inhaled. Danger of cumulative effects –
possible carcinogen, mutagen or teratogen. (Unenriched uranium compounds,
while radioactive, typically have low radioactivity, so their toxicity is
determined principally by their chemical nature.)

Personal protection

Safety glasses, gloves, good ventilation. Treat as a possible carcinogen.

4. First aid measures


EYE CONTACT: Irrigate thoroughly with water for at least 10 minutes. OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.

INHALATION: Remove from exposure, rest and keep warm. In severe cases, or if exposure has been


SKIN CONTACT: Drench the skin thoroughly with water. Remove contaminated clothing and wash

before re-use. Unless contact has been slight, OBTAIN MEDICAL ATTENTION.

INGESTION: Wash out mouth thoroughly with water and give plenty of water to drink. OBTAIN



5. Fire-fighting measures


Special risks:


Not readily combustible.

The following may develop in event of fire: radioactive dust.


Suitable extinguishing media:

Water spray, foam, dry powder or carbon dioxide


6. Accidental release measures


Wear appropriate protective clothing. Inform others to keep at a safe distance.

Mix solids with wet sand and absorb liquids on an inert absorbent, and transfer carefully to sealed

container. Arrange for removal by disposal company. Wash site of spillage thoroughly with water and


For large spillages liquids should be contained with sand or earth and both liquids and solids transferred

to salvage containers. Any residues should be treated as for small spillages.


7. Handling and storage




Observe national regulations.

Wash hands and face thoroughly after working with material.
Contaminated clothing should be removed and washed before re-use.




Observe national regulations.

Store at room temperature (15 to 25°C recommended).

Keep locked up and in metal outer container.


8. Exposure controls/personal protection


Engineering methods to control or prevent exposure are preferred. Methods could include process

enclosure or mechanical ventilation.

Respirator: Self-contained breathing apparatus

Ventilation: Extraction hood

Gloves: Rubber or plastic

Eye Protection: Goggles or face-shield

Other Precautions: Chemical worker’s protective suit, boots.
