allyl alcohol

CAS No. 107-18-6

Formula: C3H6O
Basic Info

Allyl alcohol (IUPAC name: 3-propenol) is an organic compound with the structural formula CH2=CHCH2OH. Like many alcohols, it is a water-soluble, colourless liquid, but it is more toxic than typical small alcohols. Allyl alcohol is used as a raw material for the production of glycerol, but is also used as a precursor to many specialized compounds such as flame-resistant materials, drying oils, and plasticizers. Today allyl alcohol can be obtained by many methods. Allyl alcohol is the smallest representative of the allylic alcohols.

Upon storage for several years allyl alcohol polymerizes and a thick syrup is formed (insol in water, sol in chloroform) which on treatment with ether yields a brittle resinoid mass.

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

AT 22 DEG C, LIQUID GIVES OFF FLAMMABLE CONCN OF VAPOR IN AIR.ALLYL ALCOHOL presents a dangerous fire and explosion hazard when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizing agents. Reacts violently or explosively with sulfuric acid, strong bases. Reacts violently with 2,4,6-trichloro-1,3,5-triazine and 2,4,6-tris(bromoamino)-1,3,5-triazine. Reacts with carbon tetrachloride to produce explosively unstable products [Lewis]. Mixing allyl alcohol in equal molar portions with any of the following substances in a closed container caused the temperature and pressure to increase: chlorosulfonic acid, nitric acid, oleum, sulfuric acid [NFPA 491M. 1991].

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50; Species: Pimephales promelas (Fathead Minnow) juvenile, weight 0.2-0.5 g; Conditions: freshwater, static, 20°C, pH 6.5-8.5, dissolved oxygen >40%; Concentration: 320 ug/L for 96 hr /formulation

  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: Allyl alcohol, present at 100 mg/L, reached 86% of its theoretical BOD in 2 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in the Japanese MITI test which classified allyl alcohol as readily biodegradable(1). Following incubation of 20°C with settled sewage seed, 2.5 ppm of allyl alcohol had degraded to 9.1, 55.0, 78.2, and 81.8% of the theoretical BOD after 5, 10, 15, and 20 days, respectively(2). In a 5 day BOD test, 81% of the theoretical oxygen demand was observed following incubation of allyl alcohol at 20°C with a sewage seed(3). Allyl alcohol (25 ppm) was found to degrade 100 and 60% in marine and river water after 3 days at 30°C, respectively(4). Half-lives of 10.2 and 9.5 days at 20°C were found for allyl alcohol with Texas soil (pH 7.8, 3.25% organic matter) and Mississippi soil (pH 4.8, <1% organic matter), respectively(5).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 3 in fish was calculated for allyl alcohol(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.17(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC). The uptake of (14)C-allyl alcohol residues by lettuce and carrots was investigated in the greenhouse(4); uptake of residues was higher by carrots than by lettuce, and higher by lettuce roots than by lettuce tops(4); no bioaccumulation was observed(4).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc for allyl alcohol can be estimated to be 2(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that allyl alcohol is expected to have very high mobility in soil. Leaching of allyl alcohol from soil surface to deeper layers was found to rank in order of sand > sandy loam > humus sand(3). The percent leached after 2 days and 400 mL of water with sand containing 0.51% and 2.89% organic matter were 100 and 83.3%, respectively(3). Freundlich adsorption coefficients for allyl alcohol in Texas soil (pH 7.8, 3.25% organic matter) and Mississippi soil (pH 4.8, <1% organic matter) were 4.5X10-3 and 3.3X10-4, respectively(4).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

Eye:
Causes severe eye irritation. Lachrymator (substance which increases the flow of tears).
Skin:
Causes skin irritation. May be fatal if absorbed through the skin.
Ingestion:
Harmful if swallowed. Causes gastrointestinal irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause central nervous system depression, characterized by excitement, followed by headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea. Advanced stages may cause collapse, unconsciousness, coma and possible death due to respiratory failure.

Section 4 - FIRST AID MEASURES
  Eyes: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. Get medical aid immediately. Do NOT allow victim to rub eyes or keep eyes closed.
Skin:
Get medical aid immediately. Immediately flush skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash clothing before reuse.

Treat symptomatically and supportively.

Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
  General Information:
As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Vapors may form an explosive mixture with air. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Containers may explode in the heat of a fire. Flammable liquid and vapor. Vapors are heavier than air and may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Vapors can spread along the ground and collect in low or confined areas.
Extinguishing Media:
For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or alcohol-resistant foam. For large fires, use water spray, fog, or alcohol-resistant foam. Use water spray to cool fire-exposed containers. Water may be ineffective. Do NOT use straight streams of water.

Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
  Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Wash hands before eating. Use only in a well-ventilated area. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. Keep away from heat, sparks and flame. Do not ingest or inhale. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames.
Storage:
Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Flammables-area.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
  Engineering Controls:
