Scope of Application: ?  
Major Applications: 燚icyclopentadiene is reactive. It can be used as high energy fuel. Through different reaction, it can produce metal derivative, epoxy resin, polymer, compounds like norbornene, adamantane, glutaraldehyde, perfume, medicine and other fine chemicals. 
Process Method: ?  
Packing: Bulk or 200L drum.  
Packing Size: ?  
Storage: Kept away from heat source, open fire, direct sunlight with good ventilation, package should be tight sealed, no touch with air. It is better to store/transport it at low temperature. It is not suitable to store it in great quantity or for very long time. It should be stored separately from oxidizer or acid.  
Transportation: As hazardous matters class I, the bulk can be handled by tank truck.  
Safety Precautions: 1. The product is inflammable with vapour flash point 32℃(open) or 26℃(closed). It belongs to class I inflammables in respect of fire hazard classification (GBJ16), and its depolymerized product-cyclopentadiene belongs to category .3.1 in respect of harard classification (GB944). Therefore, it should be kept away from heat/fire sources and not in touch with nitric acid, sulfuric acid and chlorosulfonic acid.
2. Fire due to dicyclopentadiene can be extinguished with foam, dry powder, CO2 or sand/earth but no water.
3. Truck for product transportation shall have hazardous material mark and necessary safety protection.
4. The product is toxic with stimulus action like numb and itching. Personnel who are exposed often to it will have some symptom like panasthenia, excitation, anhypnia and anorexia. It has also the stimulus action to skin and eyes resulting in poisoning. Its max. concentration in air is 5 mg/m3. Therefore the working place shall be kept at a good condition with ventilation and equipped with shower. If a person feels discomfort evidently, immediately leaves the site to get fresh air; if breath becomes difficult, oxygen shall be given. If breath stops, artificial breathing shall be made. If the discomfort continues long time or becomes severe, immediately go to hospital.
