The carbonate ion is a polyatomic anion with the empirical formula CO32- and a molecular mass of 60.01 daltons; it consists of one central carbon atom surrounded by three identical oxygen atoms in a trigonal planar arrangement. The carbonate ion carries a negative two formal charge and is the conjugate base of the hydrogen carbonate ion, HCO3-, which is the conjugate base of H2CO3, carbonic acid.
Isolate spill area, provide ventilation and extinguish sources of ignition. Vacuum up spill using a high efficiency particulate absolute (HEPA) air filter and place in a closed container for proper disposal. Take care not to raise dust. Use non- sparkin g tools.
|Inhalation: ||Chronic Exposure: |
|Excessive concentrations of a nuisance dust may cause nuisance condition such as coughing, sneezing, and nasal irritation. ||Excessive oral doses of calcium carbonate may produce alkalosis and hypercalcemia. |
