Allyl Chloride

CAS RN: 107-05-1

Cleanup Methods

Remove all ignition sources. Ventilate area of spill or leak. For small quantities, absorb on paper towels. Evaporate in safe place (such as fume hood). Allow sufficient time for evaporating vapors to completely clear hood ductwork. Burn paper in suitable location...
Large quantites can be reclaimed or collected and atomized in suitable combustion chamber equipped with appropriate effluent gas cleaning device. Allyl chloride should not be allowed to enter confined space, such as sewer, because of possibility of explosion.
Environmental considerations: Land Spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. /SRP: If time permits, pits, ponds, lagoons, soak holes, or holding areas should be sealed with an impermeable flexible membrane liner./ Dike surface flow using soil, sand bags, foamed polyurethane, or foamed concrete. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash, cement powder, or commercial sorbents. Apply "universal" gelling agent to immobilize spill.
Environmental considerations: Water Spill: Use natural barriers or oil spill to control booms to limit spill travel. Use natural active agent (detergent, soaps, alcohol), if approved by EPA. Inject "universal" gelling agent to solidify encircled spill and increase effectiveness of booms. If dissolved, in region of 10 ppm or greater concentrations, apply activated carbon at ten times the spill amount. Remove trapped material with suction hoses. Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Environmental considerations: Air Spill: Apply water spray or mist to knock down vapors. Combustion products include corrosive or toxic vapors.
