Hexamethylenetetramine is hygroscopic. Hexamethylenetetramine is sensitive to exposure to heat. Hexamethylenetetramine is incompatible with oxidizing agents. Hexamethylenetetramine is also incompatible with acids. Hexamethylenetetramine reacts violently with sodium peroxide. Hexamethylenetetramine reacts explosively with 1-bromopentaborane(9) at temperatures above 194° F. The complex with iodine deflagrates at 280° F. The 1:1 addition complex with iodoform has exploded at 352° F. Hexamethylenetetramine is corrosive to some metals, such as aluminum and zinc . Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Formaldehyde gas and ammonia may be given off when hot [USCG, 1999].
