Methyl 2-chloropropionate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear colorless liquid
  • General DescriptionA colorless liquid. Flash point 101°F. Density 8.9 lb / gal. Insoluble in water. Irritating and narcotic in high concentrations. Used as a solvent and for making other chemicals and dyes.
  • Air & Water ReactionsFlammable. Insoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileMETHYL CHLOROPROPIONATE is a halogenated ester. Reacts 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. Reacts exothermically with bases. Flammable hydrogen is generated with alkali metals and hydrides.
  • Health HazardMay cause toxic effects if inhaled or absorbed through skin. Inhalation or contact with material may irritate or burn skin and eyes. Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
  • Fire HazardHIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by intraperitoneal route. See also ESTERS. A flammable liquid when exposed to heat or flame. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl-.
