11.) TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
 
Toxic Dose LD 50
No Data Available
Toxicological Info
To the best of our knowledge the acute and chronic toxicity of this substance is not fully known. ACGIH A4: Not classifiable as a human carcinogen.
Inhalation
No Data Available
Skin
Irritant to skin and mucous membranes.
Eyes
Irritating effect.
Medical Symptoms
Subacute to chronic toxicity: Barium compounds may cause severe gastroenteritis, including abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea, tremors, faintness, paralysis of the arms and legs, and slow or irregular heartbeat. Severe cases may produce collapse and death due to respiratory failure. Soluble barium compounds are more likely to cause these effects than insoluble compounds. Inhalation of fimes may cause sore throat, coughing, labored breathing, and irritation of the respiratory tract as well as the above symptoms. Aluminum may be implicated in Alzheimers disease. Inhalation of aluminum containing dusts may cause pulmonary disease.
