Safety Information
1,6-HEXANEDIAMINE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesWhite to cream solid
  • Chemical PropertiesHMDA is a hygroscopic, colorless solid (pellets or flakes). Weak, fishy odor.
  • UsesFormation of high polymers, e.g., nylon 66.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A C6 alkane-alpha,omega-diamine.
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless liquid. Burns although some effort is required to ignite. Soluble in water. Corrosive to metals and tissue. Produces toxic oxides of nitrogen during combustion. Used to make nylon.
  • Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble.
  • Reactivity ProfileHEXAMETHYLENEDIAMINE is hygroscopic. Can react with strong oxidizing materials. Incompatible with acids, acid chlorides and acid anhydrides. Also incompatible with ketones, aldehydes, nitrates, phenols, isocyanates, monomers and chlorinated compounds .
  • HazardToxic by ingestion, strong irritant to tissue. Combustible.
  • Health HazardTOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
  • Fire HazardCombustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosion hazards. Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. Substance may be transported in a molten form.
  • Contact allergensHexamethylenediamine is used with adipic acid in the synthesis of polyamide plastics.
  • Potential ExposureHMDA is used as a textile intermedi ate; a raw material for nylon fiber and plastics; in wet strength resins; in the manufacture of oil-modified and moisture-area types of urethane coatings; in the manufac ture of polyamides for printing inks, dimer acids, and tex tiles; and as an oil and lubricant additive (probably as a corrosion inhibitor); as boiler feed water additives; also used in paints and as a curing agent for epoxy resins; mak ing adhesives.
  • ShippingUN2280 Hexamethylenediamine, solid, Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material. UN1783 Hexamethylenediamine, solution, Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material.
  • Purification MethodsCrystallise it in a stream of nitrogen. It sublimes in a vacuum. [Beilstein 4 IV 1320.]
  • IncompatibilitiesMay form explosive mixture with air. The aqueous solution is a strong base and a strong reducing agent. Reacts violently with oxidizers, acids, acid chlorides; acid anhydrides; carbon dioxide acids. Reacts on contact with water forming carbon dioxide. Polymermizes in temperatures >195℃.Reacts with ethylene dichloride, organic anhy drides, isocyanates, vinyl acetate, acrylates, substituted allyls, alkylene oxides, epichlorohydrin, ketones, aldehydes, alco hols, glycols, phenols, cresols, caprolactum solution. Attacks aluminum, copper, lead, tin, zinc and alloys. Absorbs carbon dioxide and water from air. Store under Nitrogen.
  • Waste DisposalIncineration; incinerator equipped with a scrubber or thermal unit to reduce nitrogen oxides emissions.
