DOT Emergency Guidelines
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Fire or Explosion: These substances will accelerate burning when involved in a fire. Some may decompose explosively when heated or involved in a fire. May explode from heat or contamination. Some will react explosively with hydrocarbons (fuels). May ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may create fire or explosion hazard. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Health: Inhalation, ingestion or contact (skin, eyes) with vapors or substance may cause severe injury, burns or death. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Public Safety: CALL Emergency Response Telephone Number ... . As an immediate precautionary measure, isolate spill or leak area in all directions for at least 50 meters (150 feet) for liquids and at least 25 meters (75 feet) for solids. Keep unauthorized personnel away. Stay upwind. Keep out of low areas. Ventilate closed spaces before entering. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Protective Clothing: Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Wear chemical protective clothing that is specifically recommended by the manufacturer. It may provide little or no thermal protection. Structural firefighters' protective clothing will only provide limited protection. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Evacuation: Large spill: Consider initial downwind evacuation for at least 100 meters (330 feet). Fire: If tank, rail car or tank truck is involved in a fire, ISOLATE for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions; also, consider initial evacuation for 800 meters (1/2 mile) in all directions. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Fire: Small fires: Use water. Do not use dry chemicals or foams. CO2, or Halon may provide limited control. Large fires: Flood fire area with water from a distance. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk. Do not move cargo or vehicle if cargo has been exposed to heat. Fight fire from maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. ALWAYS stay away from tanks engulfed in fire. For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles; if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ Spill or Leak: Keep combustibles (wood, paper, oil, etc.) away from spilled material. Do not touch damaged containers or spilled material unless wearing appropriate protective clothing. Stop leak if you can do it without risk. Do not get water inside containers. Small dry spills: With clean shovel place material into clean, dry container and cover loosely; move containers from spill area. Small liquid spills: Use a non-combustible material like vermiculite or sand to soak up the product and place into a container for later disposal. Large spills: Dike far ahead of liquid spill for later disposal. Following product recovery, flush area with water. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
/GUIDE 140: OXIDIZERS/ First Aid: Move victim to fresh air. Call 911 or emergency medical service. Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes. Contaminated clothing may be a fire risk when dry. In case of contact with substance, immediately flush skin or eyes with running water for at least 20 minutes. Keep victim warm and quiet. Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves. /Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solid; Magnesium chloride and Chlorate mixture, solution/
Exposure Standards and Regulations
Substance added directly to human food affirmed as generally recognized as safe (GRAS).
The Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations List identifies currently marketed prescription drug products, incl magnesium chloride, approved on the basis of safety and effectiveness by FDA under sections 505 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
Reactivities and Incompatibilities
Furan-2-peroxycarboxylic acid ... explodes when heated to 30-40 deg C, or at room temp upon addition of organic or inorganic materials such as ... magnesium chloride.
A large steel evaporator used for magnesium chloride soln was shut down for maintenance. During maintenance operations a fatality occurred from atmospheric oxygen deficiency inside the evaporator. It was found later that the oxygen content in the evaporator fell from the nomral 21% to about 1% in under 24 hr, & this was confirmed in lab tests. This was attributed to very rapid rusting of the steel under warm humid conditions in the presence of traces of magnesium chloride. Further work shows that ... presence of scale is a contributory factor. Magnetite scale (Fe3O4) on mild steel increases the depletion rate by a factor of 10, while the rust formed during the corrosion has little effect.
In humid environments it causes steel to rust very rapidly.

no data available

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

Absorption, Distribution and Excretion

...Three mature ewes each received by intrarumenal infusion a supplement of 0, 1, 2 and 3 g Mg/d in sequence over four 10-day periods. Net Mg absorption distal to the pylorus took place down its electrochemical gradient, although the quantity absorbed remained small during the control and first infusion periods. The bulk of Mg absorption occurred before the pylorus and, during the control and first infusion periods, took place against its electrochemical gradient. The net Mg absorption proximal to the pylorus rose with declining efficiency as Mg intake was increased. It is suggested that saturation of the absorption process at this site was occurring.
