Safety Information
BROMOACETONE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesColorless liquid when pure, rapidly becomes violet even in absence of air. Soluble in ace- tone, alcohol, benzene, and ether; slightly soluble in water.
  • UsesChemical war gas.
  • DefinitionChEBI: An alpha-bromoketone that is acetone in which one of the hydrogens is replaced by a bromine atom. A poweful lachrymator, it was formerly used as a chemical weapon.
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless liquid turning violet on standing, even in the absence of air, and decomposing to a black resinous mass on long standing. Denser than water and poorly soluble in water. Hence sinks in water. A violent lachrymator--low concentrations are very irritating to the eyes; high concentrations or prolonged exposure at lower concentrations may have adverse health effects. Very toxic by inhalation. Contact with the liquid causes painful burns. Used as a chemical war gas.
  • Air & Water ReactionsHighly flammable. Soluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileBROMOACETONE decomposes on standing.
  • HazardToxic by inhalation and skin contact. A lachrymator gas, strong irritant.
  • Health HazardVery powerful lachrymator and upper respiratory tract irritant. Intensely irritating to the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Corrosive to the skin.
  • Fire HazardSpecial Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic fumes of Bromine
  • Safety ProfileA poisonous gas. Moderately toxic to humans by inhalation. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Br-. See also BROMIDES.
  • Purification MethodsStand bromoacetone over anhydrous CaCO3, filter, distil it under low vacuum, and store it with CaCO3 in the dark at 0o. [Levene Org Synth Coll Vol II 88 1943.] Violently LACHRYMATORY and skin IRRITANT.
