Isopropyl chloroformate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesClear colorless solution
  • UsesChemical intermediate for free-radical polymerization initiators, organic synthesis.
  • Production MethodsPrepared by the reaction of liquid anhydrous isopropyl alcohol with molar excess of dry, chlorine-free phosgene at low temperature.
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless volatile liquid with a pungent irritating odor. About the same density as water and insoluble in water. Floats on water Flash point 75°F. Very irritating to skin and eyes and very toxic by inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption. Used to make other chemicals.
  • Air & Water ReactionsHighly flammable. Gives off HCl fumes in moist air. Insoluble in water. Decomposes slowly in water forming isopropyl alcohol, HCl, and CO2.
  • Reactivity ProfileIsopropyl chloroformate is water reactive. A sample stored in a refrigerator exploded [Wischmeyer 1973]. Attacks many metals especially in humid atmosphere [Handling Chemicals Safely, 1980. p. 476]. May react vigorously or explosively if mixed with diisopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts [J. Haz. Mat., 1981, 4, 291].
  • HazardToxic by inhalation.
  • Health HazardAcute: highly toxic by inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption. Delayed: can produce delayed pulmonary edema (2-24 hours after exposure) similar to that produced by phosgene. Inhalation of material may cause death or permanent injury.
  • Fire HazardExtremely dangerous; Isopropyl chloroformate has exploded while stored in refrigerator. Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Like other chlorides, when heated to decomposition or on contact with acids or acrid fumes, they evolve highly toxic chloride fumes. Reacts violently with phosgene. Unstable, avoid phosgene
