anisidine Chemical Properties
- EPA Substance Registry SystemAnisidine (29191-52-4)
anisidine Usage And Synthesis
- Chemical PropertiesAnisidine exists as ortho-, meta-, and paraisomers. They have characteristic amine (fishy) odors.
- General DescriptionA fused crystalline solid or a reddish to yellowish oily liquid. More dense than water and insoluble in water. Very irritating to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Toxic by ingestion and skin contact. Used to make dyes.
- Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
- Reactivity ProfileAn amine. Amines are chemical bases. They neutralize acids to form salts plus water. These acid-base reactions are exothermic. The amount of heat that is evolved per mole of amine in a neutralization is largely independent of the strength of the amine as a base. Amines may be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen is generated by amines in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
- Health HazardTOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
- Fire HazardCombustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosion hazards. Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. Substance may be transported in a molten form.
- Potential ExposureAnisidines are used in the manufacture of azo dyes; pharmaceuticals; textile-processing chemicals Incompatibilities: 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. Attacks some coatings and some forms of plastic and rubber.
