General Description
A grayish green to bluish green powder. The primary hazard is the threat to the environment. Immediate steps should be taken to limit its spread to the environment. It is used in tanning and in textile dyeing.

The Hazard fields include special hazard alerts, air and water reactions, fire hazards, health hazards, a reactivity profile, and details about reactive groups assignments and potentially incompatible absorbents. The information in CAMEO Chemicals comes from a variety of data sources.
Reactivity Alerts
none
Air & Water Reactions
Water soluble.
Fire Hazard
No information available.
Health Hazard
INHALATION: Irritating. It can produce ulcerations in the respiratory system, perforation of the nasal septum, pneumonitis and bronchial carcinoma. EYES: Irritation. SKIN: May cause dermatitis to exposed skin. Can produce ulcerations and sensitizing reactions. (USCG, 1999)
Reactivity Profile
CHROMIC ACETATE gives aqueous solutions that are basic (neutralize acids). These neutralizations generate only a little heat. Neither a strong reducing agent nor oxidizing agent, but can serve as both.
Belongs to the Following Reactive Group(s)
Potentially Incompatible Absorbents
