  • Chemical Propertiesoff-white crystalline solid
  • UsesUsed in prevention and treatment of vitamin E deficiencies.
  • General DescriptionOdorless off-white crystals. Darkens at 401° F.
  • Air & Water ReactionsD-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate may be sensitive to prolonged exposure to light and air. . Insoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileAn 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.
  • Fire HazardFlash point data for D-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate are not available. D-alpha-Tocopheryl acetate is probably combustible.
  • Contact allergensTocopherol and tocopheryl acetate are used mainly as antioxidants. Tocopheryl acetate, an ester of tocopherol (vitamin E), can induce allergic contact dermatitis.
  • Safety ProfileWhen heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
