Safety Information
Bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless oily liquid
  • DefinitionChEBI: A diester resulting from the formal condensation of the carboxy groups of adipic acid with 2-ethylhexan-1-ol. It is used as a plasticiser in the preparation of various polymers.
  • General DescriptionColorless to straw-colored liquid with a mild odor. Floats on water.
  • Air & Water ReactionsBis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate slowly hydrolyzes. Insoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileBis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate is an 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. Can generate electrostatic charges. [Handling Chemicals Safely 1980. p. 250]. Bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate is incompatible with oxidizing materials and water. Bis(2-ethylhexyl) adipate is also incompatible with nitrates.
  • Health HazardLiquid may cause mild eye irritation. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may cause irritation.
  • Fire HazardBehavior in Fire: Use water spray to cool exposed containers.
  • Safety ProfileModerately toxic by intravenous route. Mildly toxic by ingestion. Experimental reproductive effects. Mutation data reported. An eye and skin irritant. Questionable carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic data. See also ESTERS. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
