Safety Information
6-Benzylaminopurine Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertieswhite to light yellow crystal powder
  • Chemical PropertiesColorless to off-white or yellow powder. Corrosive.
  • Uses6-Benzylaminopurine can be used as inhibitor of respiratory kinase in plants.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A member of the class of 6-aminopurines that is adenine in which one of the hydrogens of the amino group is replaced by a benzyl group.
  • Health HazardRecommended Personal Protective Equipment: Self-contained breathing apparatus, rubber gloves, acid goggles; Symptoms Following Exposure: Vapor is irritating when breathed at high concentrations. Contact with liquid causes irritation of skin and burning of eyes; General Treatment for Exposure: INHALATION: remove to fresh air; administer artificial respiration or oxygen if indicated; call a physician. SKIN AND EYES: wash with plenty of water; Toxicity by Inhalation (Threshold Limit Value): Data not available; Short-Term Exposure Limits: LD50 100 ppm, 4 hr; Toxicity by Ingestion: Grade 2; LD50 = 0.5 to 5 g/kg (rat); Late Toxicity: Data not available; Vapor (Gas) Irritant Characteristics: Vapors cause a slight smarting of the eyes or respiratory system if present in high concentrations. The effect is temporary; Liquid or Solid Irritant Characteristics: Minimum hazard. If spilled on clothing and allowed to remain, may cause smarting and reddening of the skin; Odor Threshold: Data not available.
  • Fire HazardFlash Point (°F): 118 ℃; Flammable Limits in Air (%): 1.4-9.4; Fire Extinguishing Agents: Dry chemical, foam or carbon dioxide; Fire Extinguishing Agents Not To Be Used: Not pertinent; Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Not pertinent; Behavior in Fire: Not pertinent; Ignition Temperature (°F): 534; Electrical Hazard: Not pertinent; Burning Rate: 4.7 mm/min.
  • Chemical ReactivityReactivity with Water No reaction; Reactivity with Common Materials: No reactions; Stability During Transport: Stable; Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not pertinent; Polymerization: Polymerizes upon exposure to heat; uncontrolled bulk polymerization can be explosive; Inhibitor of Polymerization: Methyl ether of hydroquinone: 15-100 ppm. Store in contact with air.

  • ShippingUN3259 Amines, solid, corrosive, n.o.s, or Polyamines, solid, corrosive, n.o.s., Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8—Corrosive material, Technical Name Required.
  • Purification MethodsIt is purified by recrystallisation from aqueous EtOH. It has at 207 and 270nm (H2O), 268 nm max (pH 6), 274nm (0.1 N HCl) and 275nm (0.1 N NaOH). [Daly J Org Chem 21 1553 1956, Bullock et al. J Am Chem Soc 78 3693 1956, Beilstein 26 III/IV 3575.]
  • IncompatibilitiesMay react with strong oxidizers such as chlorates, peroxides, nitrates, etc. May release heat on contact with water. Solid and corrosive amines are chemical bases. Neutralize acids to form salts plus water in exothermic reactions. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. May generate flammable gaseous hydrogen in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
  • Waste DisposalDissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
