PINDONE Usage And Synthesis
Pindone is a bright yellow crystalline solid or powder. May turn yellow-brown on contact with air. Nearly odorless.
Yellow solid or powder.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
Ketones, such as PINDONE, are reactive with many acids and bases liberating heat and flammable gases (e.g., H2). The amount of heat may be sufficient to start a fire in the unreacted portion of the ketone. Ketones react with reducing agents such as hydrides, alkali metals, and nitrides to produce flammable gas (H2) and heat. Ketones are incompatible with isocyanates, aldehydes, cyanides, peroxides, and anhydrides. They react violently with aldehydes, HNO3, HNO3 + H2O2, and HClO4.
Flash point data for PINDONE are not available, but PINDONE is probably combustible.
Poison by ingestion, intravenous, and parenteral routes. Causes reduced blood clotting, which leads to hemorrhaging. Used as an anticoagulant and rodenticide. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also WARFARIN.

UN2811 Toxic solids, organic, n.o.s., Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required. UN2588 Pesticides, solid, toxic, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required.
Ketone substances are incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides, nitrated amines; azo, diazo, azido compounds, carbamates, organic cyanates.
Use a licensed professional waste disposal service to dispose of this material. Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed. In accordance with 40CFR165, follow recommendations for the disposal of pesticides and pesticide containers. Must be disposed properly by following package label directions or by contacting your local or federal environmental control agency, or by contacting your regional EPA office.
