Safety and Handling
Hazard Codes
CNS stimulant, a poison. Possession is illegal in U.S.
Risk Statements
Safety Statements

A human poison by ingestion and possibly other routes. Poison experimentally by ingestion, intraperitoneal, intravenous, subcutaneous, and parenteral routes. Human central nervous system effects by ingestion and possibly other routes: general anesthesia, hallucinations or distorted perceptions, and convulsions. An eye irritant. A widely abused, controlled substance. Abuse leads to habituation or addiction. In medicine, it is used as a local narcotic anesthetic applied topically to mucous membranes. The free base is soluble in fats and thus is used for ointments and oily solutions. For water-soluble applications, the sulfate or hydrochloride is used. When heated to decomposition it emits highly toxic fumes.
Hazard Codes: ToxicT

Exposure Standards and Regulations
Schedules of controlled substances are established by section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812). Schedule II includes cocaine, DEA Code #9041; Drug class: Substances, vegetable origin or chemical synthesis.
Other Preventative Measures
SRP: The scientific literature for the use of contact lenses in industry is conflicting. The benefit or detrimental effects of wearing contact lenses depend not only upon the substance, but also on factors including the form of the substance, characteristics and duration of the exposure, the uses of other eye protection equipment, and the hygiene of the lenses. However, there may be individual substances whose irritating or corrosive properties are such that the wearing of contact lenses would be harmful to the eye. In those specific cases, contact lenses should not be worn. In any event, the usual eye protection equipment should be worn even when contact lenses are in place.
Protective Equipment and Clothing
An eye irritant.

4.First-aid measures

4.1 Description of necessary first-aid measures

General advice

Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled

If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.

In case of skin contact

Wash off with soap and plenty of water. Consult a physician.

In case of eye contact

Rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.

If swallowed

Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.

4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

no data available

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

Emergency and supportive measures: Maintain an open airway and assist ventilation if necessary. Treat coma, agitation, seizures, hyperthermia, arrhythmias, and hypotension if they occur. benzodiazepines are a good choice for initial management of hypertension and tachycardia associated with agitation.Angina pectoris may be treated with benzodiazepines, aspirin, nitrates, or calcium channel blockers. For acute myocardial infarction, thrombolysis has been recommended but is controversial. Supporting its use is the high prevalence of acute thrombosis, often superimposed on coronary spasm. Against its use are the excellent prognosis for patients with cocaine induced infarction, even without thrombolysis, and concerns about increased risk of bleeding caused by intracranial hemorrhage or aortic dissections. Monitor vital signs and ECF for several hours. Patients with suspected coronary artery spasm should be admitted to a coronary care unit, and because of reports of persistent or recurrent coronary spasm up to several days after initial exposure, consider the sue of an oral calcium antagonist and/or cardiac nitrates for 2-4 weeks after discharge.

12.Ecological information

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: no data available
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

PURE CULTURE: Cocaine was biodegraded using an enriched culture containing Pseudomonas fluorescens MBER and Comamonas acidovorans MBLF; metabolic products were identified as ecgonine methyl ester and benzoic acid, ecgonine, and pseudoecgonine(1).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 3 was calculated in fish for Cocaine(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.30(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using an agricultural soil from Correstown, County Dublin Ireland, a Kd in soil of 22 L/kg with a log Koc of 2.78 has been reported(1), corresponding to a Koc of 602(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this Koc value suggests that cocaine is expected to have low mobility in soil. The pKa of cocaine is 8.61(3), indicating that this compound will partially exist in the cation form in the environment and cations generally do adsorb more strongly to soils containing organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts(4).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods


The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
