Understanding The Basic Elements Of The Organoiodine Compound Diiodomethane

Diiodomethane is a chemical that are used in several industries. This is also called as methylene iodide. To know in detail you can learn about the compound which is organoiodine in it. The properties of this are that it is colourless and it is soluble in organic solvents more easily when compared to water. The refractive index of this is 1.741, from the value one can know how high it is. Similarly the surface tension of Diiodomethane is 0.0508 N m−1. One of the usages of it is seen in understanding the density of the mineral. This is also used as optical contact liquid. The refractive index of gemstones can be understood when this is used with the gemmological refractometer. It is also known that this is a colourless liquid which when exposed to light or air or moisture becomes dark. Some of its chemical properties which include its melting point, boiling point are 6 and 182. The vapour pressure is 141 degree centigrade and vapour density is 9.25. These are some of the Diiodomethane msds. The basic information about the physical and chemical properties of it helps to understand the chemical in a better way.

Immediate Need Of Medical Help In Case Of Ingestion And Inhalation

There are certain measures which a person should be aware of while working with this chemical. In case of any ingestion it is essential to follow certain essential check points. Firstly the person should not forcibly try to vomit. If the person become unconscious it is essential to immediately look for medical help and if the person is conscious then he/she should be given two to four cups of milk or water in case of ingestion. Similarly in case of inhalation it is essential to get the person to fresh air. If the case is adverse where the person is not breathing, then it is essential to arrange for some artificial respiration such as oxygen and should look out for doctor immediately. As the usage of chemical is well known to all, people need to look for several suppliers and decide where to buy based on their requirement.
