Safety Information
Benzotrifluoride Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesClear colourless to light yellow liquid
  • UsesAn alternative solvent to dichloromethane
  • UsesIn dye chemistry; in the manufacture of substituted benzotrifluorides contg an ethylenic group, used in high polymer chemistry; in dielectric fluids, such as transformer oils.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A fluorohydrocarbon that is fluoroform in which the hydrogen is substituted by a phenyl group.
  • Synthesis Reference(s)Synthesis, p. 932, 1980 DOI: 10.1055/s-1980-29276
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless liquid with an aromatic odor. Flash point of 54°F. Vapors are heavier than air. Insoluble in water and slightly denser than water. May be toxic by inhalation.
  • Air & Water ReactionsHighly flammable. Insoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileBenzotrifluoride may react with oxidizing materials, strong bases and reducing agents.
  • HazardHighly toxic by inhalation. Flammable, dangerous fire risk.
  • Health HazardInhalation or contact with material may irritate or burn skin and eyes. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control may cause pollution.
  • Fire HazardHIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by intraperitoneal route.Moderately toxic by subcutaneous route. Dangerous fire hazard. To fight fire, usewater, foam, CO2, spray mist, dry chemical. When heatedto decomposition it emits toxic fumes of F??. Incompatiblewith oxidizing materials
  • Purification MethodsPurify benzotrifluoride by repeated treatment with boiling aqueous Na2CO3 (until no test for chloride ion is obtained), dry it with K2CO3, then with P2O5, and fractionally distil it. [Beilstein 5 IV 802.]
