Safety Information
Isobutyl methacrylate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
  • Chemical PropertiesIsobutyl methacrylate is a colorless and moderately flammable liquid.
  • UsesMonomer for acrylic resins.
  • UsesIsobutyl methacrylate is primarily used as a monomer for acrylic resins .
  • Production MethodsIsobutyl methacrylate is produced by the esterification or transesterification of isobutyl alcohol with either methacrylic acid or methyl methacrylate .
  • General DescriptionIsobutyl methacrylate is a colorless liquid with a flash point of 120°F. When heated to high temperatures Isobutyl methacrylate may release acrid smoke and fumes. If Isobutyl methacrylate is subjected to heat for prolonged periods or becomes contaminated, Isobutyl methacrylate is subject to polymerization. If the polymerization takes place inside a container, the container may violently rupture. The vapors are heavier than air. Isobutyl methacrylate may be irritating to skin and eyes and produce a narcotic effect. Isobutyl methacrylate is used in making acrylic resins.
  • Air & Water ReactionsFlammable. Isobutyl methacrylate is sensitive to heat, air and light.
  • Reactivity ProfileIsobutyl methacrylate is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides. Isobutyl methacrylate polymerizes readily.
  • HazardModerate fire risk.
  • Health HazardMay be harmful if inhaled; may cause dizziness or suffocation. Irritating to skin and eyes. Harmful if swallowed.
