Isopropyl ether

CAS No. 108-20-3

Formula: C6H14O
Basic Info

Diisopropyl ether is secondary ether that is used as a solvent. It is a colorless liquid that is slightly soluble in water, but miscible with organic solvents. It is used as an extractant and an oxygenate gasoline additive. It is obtained industrially as a byproduct in the production of isopropanol by hydration of propene. Diisopropyl ether is sometimes represented by the abbreviation "DIPE".

10.Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity

no data available

10.2 Chemical stability

Keeping ethers from becoming anhydrous plus the addition of antioxidants will help reduce this explosion hazard.

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

FLAMMABLE LIQUID.The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible. As a result of flow, agitation, etc., electrostatic charges can be generated.Ethers, such as DIISOPROPYL ETHER, can act as bases. They form salts with strong acids and addition complexes with Lewis acids. The complex between diethyl ether and boron trifluoride is an example. Ethers may react violently with strong oxidizing agents. In other reactions, which typically involve the breaking of the carbon-oxygen bond, ethers are relatively inert. Mixing diisopropyl ether 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, [NFPA 1991].

10.4 Conditions to avoid

no data available

10.5 Incompatible materials

Mixing diisopropyl ether and chlorosulfonic acid in a closed container caused the temp and pressure to incr. Mixing diisopropyl ether and 70% nitric acid in a closed container caused the temp and pressure to increase.

10.6 Hazardous decomposition products

When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes.

12.Ecological information

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50 Pimephales promelas (fathead minnow) 91.7 mg/l 96 hr flow-through bioassay, wt 0.12 g, water hardness 45.5 mg/l CaCO3, temp: 25 + or - 1°C, pH 7.5, dissolved oxygen greater than 60% of saturation
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

No data concerning the biodegradation of isopropyl ether in environmental media were located. An activated sludge aqueous screening study found that the compound was biodegraded slowly after a 15 day lag period with a 25% theoretical biological oxygen demand being measured after 25 days incubation(1). A screening test study utilizing a sewage inoculum also indicated slow biodegradation as indicated by the 7% theoretical biological oxygen demand which was measured after 5 days(2). These screening test results suggest that isopropyl ether may be resistent to biodegradation in the environment(SRC). Many ethers are known to be resistant to biodegradation(3).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 8 was calculated for isopropyl ether(SRC), using a log Kow of 1.52(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).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of isopropyl ether is estimated as approximately 160(SRC), using a log Kow of 1.52(1) and a regression-derived equation(2,SRC). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that isopropyl ether is expected to have high mobility in soil(SRC).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Notes to Physician:

Section 5 - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
  General Information:
Containers can build up pressure if exposed to heat and/or fire. As in any fire, wear a self-contained breathing apparatus in pressure-demand, MSHA/NIOSH (approved or equivalent), and full protective gear. Use water spray to keep fire-exposed containers cool. Water may be ineffective. Material is lighter than water and a fire may be spread by the use of water. Forms peroxides of unknown stability. Extremely flammable liquid and vapor. Vapor may cause flash fire. 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.

Section 7 - HANDLING and STORAGE
  Handling:
Wash thoroughly after handling. Ground and bond containers when transferring material. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment. Loosen closure cautiously before opening. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Empty containers retain product residue, (liquid and/or vapor), and can be dangerous. If peroxide formation is suspected, do not open or move container. Do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose empty containers to heat, sparks or open flames. Use only with adequate ventilation. Avoid breathing vapor.
Storage:
Keep away from sources of ignition. Store in a tightly closed container. Keep under a nitrogen blanket. Keep from contact with oxidizing materials. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances. Keep away from strong acids. Store protected from light. Containers should be dated when opened and tested periodically for the presence of peroxides. Test for peroxide levels in unpreserved product upon expiration. Products with excessive peroxide must be disposed of promptly and properly.

Section 8 - EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION
  Engineering Controls:
Use adequate general or local exhaust ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below the permissible exposure limits.
