Dimethoxymethane Chemical Properties,Usage,Production

  • Chemical Properties Methylal is a low-boiling solvent, stable in the presence of alkalis and mild acids, and to high temperatures and pressures. It differs from other ethers in that it forms only minute omounts of peroxides. It will dissolve such synthetic resins as nitrocellulose, cellulose acetate and propionate, ethyl cellulose, vinyl, "Epons" and polystyrene, and also many of the natural gums and waxes. Methylal as a latent solvent is activated by the addition of esters, ketones or alcohols. Its evaporation rate, twice that of acetone, places this ether in a class with such solvents as acetone, methyl acetate and ethyl acetate in resin formulations.
  • Chemical Properties Methylal is a colorless liquid with a pungent odor.
  • Physical properties Colorless liquid with a pungent, chloroform-like odor
  • Uses In perfumery; manufacture of artificial resins; reaction medium for Grignard and Reppe reactions.
  • Uses Methylal is a valuable extraction solvent for pharmaceutical products and a stable, inexpensive solvent for Grignard reactions. Methylal is stable under alkaline and mild acidic conditions.
  • Uses Solvent; fuel; in perfume
  • Definition ChEBI: An acetal that is the dimethyl acetal derivative of formaldehyde.
  • General Description A clear colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Flash point 0°F. Boiling point 42.3°C. Density 0.864 g / cm3 at 68°F (20°C). Vapors heavier than air.
  • Air & Water Reactions Highly flammable. Water soluble.
  • Reactivity Profile Dimethoxymethane, an acetal, is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and acids . Breaks down to formaldehyde and methanol in acidic solutions. A very dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat, flame or oxidizing agents. May ignite or explode if heated with oxygen [Lewis].
  • Hazard Flammable, dangerous fire and explosion risk. Toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Eye irritant and central nervous system impairment.
  • Health Hazard VAPOR: Irritating to eyes, nose and throat. Harmful if inhaled. LIQUID: Irritating to skin and eyes. Harmful if swallowed.
  • Fire Hazard FLAMMABLE. Irritating gases may be produced when heated. Containers may explode in fire. Flashback along vapor trail may occur. Vapor may explode if ignited in an enclosed area. Irritating formaldehyde gas may be present in smoke.
  • Chemical Reactivity Reactivity with Water: No reaction; Reactivity with Common Materials: No reaction; Stability During Transport: Stable; Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not pertinent; Polymerization: Not pertinent; Inhibitor of Polymerization: Not pertinent.
  • Safety Profile Moderately toxic by subcutaneous route. Mildly toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Can cause injury to lungs, liver, kidneys, and the heart. A narcotic and anesthetic in high concentrations. A very dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidzers. Moderately explosive when exposed to heat or flame. May ignite or explode when heated with oxygen. To fight fire, use foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also ETHERS.
  • Potential Exposure Vapors may form explosive mixture with air. Methylal may be able to form unstable and explosive peroxides. Heating may cause explosion. Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides. Hydrolyzes readily in presence of acids to generate aldehydes.
  • Source Methylal is a by-product in the synthesis of trioxane, an intermediate in the manufacture of polyacetal plastics (Albert et al., 2001).
  • Shipping UN1234 Methylal, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid
  • Purification Methods It is a volatile flammable liquid which is soluble in three parts of H2O, and is readily hydrolysed by acids. Purify it by shaking with an equal volume of 20% aqueous NaOH, stand for 20minutes, dry over fused CaCl2, filter and fractionally distil it through an efficient column. Store it over molecular sieves. [Buchler et al. Org Synth Coll Vol III 469 1955, Rambaud & Besserre Bull Soc Chim Fr 45 1955, IR: Wilmshurst Can J Chem 36 285 1958, Beilstein 1 IV 3026.]
  • Incompatibilities If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit
  • Waste Disposal Concentrated waste containing no peroxides: discharge liquid at a controlled rate near a pilot flame. Concentrated waste containing peroxides: perforation of containers of the waste from a safe distance followed by open burning.
