In concentrated form METHYLCYCLOPENTADIENYLMANGANESE TRICARBONYL is highly toxic by all routes of exposure. Approximately 5-15 ml, when spilled on the hand and wrist of a worker, produced toxic effects within 3-5 minutes.
An orange liquid with a pleasant odor. Slightly soluble in water and denser than water. May be toxic by inhalation, ingestion and/or skin absorption.
When heated to decomposition, METHYLCYCLOPENTADIENYLMANGANESE TRICARBONYL emits toxic fumes of carbon monoxide. Hazardous polymerization may not occur.
