Fire may produce irritating and/or toxic gases. Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Runoff from fire control may cause pollution.
Isosorbide 5-mononitrate is a crystalline solid. Isosorbide 5-mononitrate is very flammable and may be toxic by ingestion.
The dinitrate, a heart drug, can detonate when dry, but is non explosive with 30% of water [J. Haz.. Mater., 1992, 32(1), 87]. The mononitrate would be expected to be less reactive.
