Safety Information
Hexylamine Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
  • Chemical PropertiesColorless to yellow liquid; fishy aroma.
  • Chemical Propertiesn-Hexylamine is a colorless, flammable liquid, slightly soluble in water and soluble in alcohol and ether.
  • Usesn-Hexylamine is used in organic syntheses.
  • UsesToxic by ingestion, inhalation, and skin absorption. Flammable, moderate fire risk.
  • Uses1-Hexylamine is used as corrosion inhibitors, emulsifiers and surfactants. It is used in dyes, rubber and pharmaceutical industries. It is also used to study the modification of alkanethlol monolayers in gas-phase surface reactions. It acts as an initiator in the ring opening polymerization of N-carboxyanhydride.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A 6-carbon primary aliphatic amine.
  • Aroma threshold valuesHigh strength odor; fishy type, recommend smelling in a 0.10% solution or less
  • Synthesis Reference(s)The Journal of Organic Chemistry, 55, p. 2271, 1990 DOI: 10.1021/jo00295a002
    Synthesis, p. 605, 1981
  • General DescriptionA water-white liquid with an amine-like odor. Flash point 85°F. Boiling point 132°F. Less dense than water and poorly soluble in swater. Hence floats on water. May be toxic by inhalation, ingestion or skin absorption.
  • Air & Water ReactionsHighly flammable. Slightly soluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileHEXYLAMINE neutralize acids in exothermic reactions to form salts plus water. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen may be generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
  • 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 or dilution water may cause pollution.
  • Purification MethodsDry with, and fractionally distil the hexylamine from, KOH or CaH2. Store away from CO2. [Beilstein 4 IV 709.]
