SRP: The scientific literature for the use of contact lenses in industry is conflicting. The benefit or detrimental effects of wearing contact lenses depend not only upon the substance, but also on factors including the form of the substance, characteristics and duration of the exposure, the uses of other eye protection equipment, and the hygiene of the lenses. However, there may be individual substances whose irritating or corrosive properties are such that the wearing of contact lenses would be harmful to the eye. In those specific cases, contact lenses should not be worn. In any event, the usual eye protection equipment should be worn even when contact lenses are in place.

Safety Statements:
S26
HazardClass:
9.2
Skin, Eye, and Respiratory Irritations:
Dust: Irritating to eyes, nose, and throat. Solid: Irritating to skin and eyes.
Cleanup Methods:
Environmental considerations- land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, or 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.
Cover solids with a plastic sheet to prevent dissolving in rain or fire fighting water.
Environmental considerations- water spill: Use natural deep water pockets, excavated lagoons, or sand bag barriers to trap material at bottom. If dissolved, in region of 10 ppm or greater concentration, apply activated carbon at ten times the spilled amount. Remove trapped material with suction hoses. Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Electrochemical measurements have been made on the system Cu(2+), adipic acid, nitric acid (which models the effluent from adipic acid plants) to investigate the reasons for the observed low current efficiency for copper deposition from such soln. The most probable cause is a cathodic shift in the deposition potential of copper making the reduction of NO3- the preferred process. Depletion experiments have been carried out on real effluent in two three-dimensional cells, a bipolar trickle tower and a porous reticulated carbon bed. Each performs reasonably well and, while the current efficiencies are low (about 20%), the deposition is essentially mass-transfer controlled.
Neutralizing agents for acids and caustics: Rinse with dilute soda ash solution.
Transport:
UN 9077
Fire Fighting Procedures:
Stop discharge if possible, keep people away. Shut off ignition sources. Call fire department. Avoid contact with solid and dust. Isolate and remove discharged material.
If material on fire or involved in fire: Use water in flooding quantities as fog. Solid streams of water may spread fire. Cool all affected containers with flooding quantities of water. Apply water from as far a distance as possible. Use foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide.

Other Preventative Measures:
If material not on fire and not involved in fire: Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Build dikes to contain flow as necessary.
Personnel protection: Avoid breathing vapors or dusts. Do not handle broken packages unless wearing appropriate personal protective equipment. Wash away any material which may have contacted the body with copious amounts of water or soap and water.
Although there are no special precautions in the normal handling of adipic acid, good industrial housekeeping practices, personal hygiene, and avoidance of prolonged and repeated skin or eye contact is indicated.
SRP: Contaminated protective clothing should be segregated in such a manner so that there is no direct personal contact by personnel who handle, dispose, or clean the clothing. Quality assurance to ascertain the completeness of the cleaning procedures should be implemented before the decontaminated protective clothing is returned for reuse by the workers.
SRP: The scientific literature for the use of contact lenses in industry is conflicting. The benefit or detrimental effects of wearing contact lenses depend not only upon the substance, but also on factors including the form of the substance, characteristics and duration of the exposure, the uses of other eye protection equipment, and the hygiene of the lenses. However, there may be individual substances whose irritating or corrosive properties are such that the wearing of contact lenses would be harmful to the eye.

Adipic acid can be prepared from acetylene and acetic acid in the presence of tert-butyl peroxide.
The predominant commercial route to adipic acid is via oxidation of cyclohexane in two processing steps. The first step involves oxidation of cyclohexane with air to form a mixture of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol (termed ketone-alcohol, KA, or ol-one), followed by oxidation of the ketone-alcohol mixture with nitric acid to produce adipic acid. The balance of adipic acid is made from phenol by hydrogenation to cyclohexanol followed by similar nitric acid oxidation.
A patent describes a direct synthesis of adipic acid from butadiene by reaction under pressure with carbon monoxide and water (about 220 deg C) in the presence of a rhodium catalyst.

Environmental Fate and Exposure Potential
Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary:
TERRESTRIAL FATE: Based on a recommended classification scheme(1), an estimated Koc value of 26(SRC), determined from a measured log Kow of 0.08(2) and a recommended regression-derived equation(3), indicates that adipic acid is expected to have very high mobility in soil(SRC). Volatilization of adipic acid is not expected to be important from moist soil surfaces(SRC) given an estimated Henry's Law constant of 4.7X10-12 atm-cu m/mole(SRC) from its extrapolated vapor pressure, 7.4X10-7 at 30 deg C(4), and measured water solubility, 3.0X10+4 mg/l at 30 deg C(5). Adipic acid is not expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces based on its extrapolated vapor pressure(4). Biodegradability screening tests indicate that adipic acid is readily biodegradable(SRC). An 84% conversion of adipic acid's carbon content to carbon dioxide was observed after 30 days aerobic incubation in soil biometer flasks at an initial adipic acid concn of 1 mg/g soil(6).
AQUATIC FATE: Based on a recommended classification scheme(1), an estimated Koc value of 26(SRC), determined from a measured log Kow of 0.08(2) and a recommended regression-derived equation(3), indicates that adipic acid is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment in water(SRC). Adipic acid is not expected to volatilize from water surfaces(3,SRC) based on an estimated Henry's Law constant of 4.7X10-12 atm-cu m/mole(SRC) from its extrapolated vapor pressure, 7.4X10-7 mm Hg at 30 deg C(4), and measured water solubility, 3.0X10+4 mg/l at 30 deg C(5). Adipic acid's pKa's of 4.44 and 5.4(6) indicate that adipic acid will exist predominately in the ionized form under environmental pHs(SRC). Volatilization of the ionized form from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process(SRC). According to a classification scheme(7), an estimated BCF value of 0.68(3,SRC), from a measured log Kow(2), suggests that bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC). Biodegradability screening tests indicate that adipic acid is readily biodegradable(SRC). Adipic acid was rapidly degraded in a river die-away test using Main River (Germany) water; 50% and 90% degradation being achieved in 3.5 and 7 days, respectively, at concn levels of 700 mg/l(8).
ATMOSPHERIC FATE: According to a model of gas/particle partitioning of semivolatile organic compounds in the atmosphere(1), adipic acid, which has an extrapolated vapor pressure of 7.4X10-7 mm Hg at 30 deg C(2), will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase adipic acid is degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals(SRC); the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be about 2.9 days(3,SRC). Particulate-phase adipic acid may be physically removed from the air by wet and dry deposition(SRC).
