ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- Titanium tetrachloride is a colorless, fuming liquid that is decomposed by moisture to hydrochloric acid, titanium dioxide, and heat. The toxicity of this agent is likely due to the release of hydrochloric acid. Titanium tetrachloride is corrosive to tissues.
- Long-term exposure, even at low concentrations results in upper respiratory tract irritation and acute or chronic bronchitis. Cough, bronchoconstriction with wheezing, chemical pneumonitis, or noncardiogenic pulmonary edema may occur following inhalation.
- Direct skin contact can cause irritation or corrosive dermal burns, especially if the material contacts water.
- Even brief, direct eye contact with the liquid material can cause severe eye injury.
- Ingestion of this material can cause mouth, throat, esophageal, and GI tract irritation or burns. Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain may occur. Potential complications include bleeding or perforation and late development of esophageal or gastric strictures.
- Exposure to chloride fumes from the decomposition of titanium tetrachloride in a fire situation would be predicted to cause respiratory tract irritation with chemical pneumonitis or noncardiogenic pulmonary edema.
