Facts about hydrazine
Hydrazines (H₂NNH₂) are clear, colorless liquids with an ammonia-like odor. Hydrazines are highly reactive and easily catch fire. Workers may be harmed from exposure to hydrazine. The level of harm depends upon the dose, duration, and work being done.
Hydrazine is used in many industries, such as the manufacturing of rocket propellants and fuels for spacecraft. Some examples of workers at risk of being exposed to hydrazine include the following:
- Workers who use it for boiler water treatments to protect against corrosion
- Industrial workers who use it as a chemical reactant
- Researchers who explore cancer treatments
- Agricultural workers who use it in pesticides
