Physical and chemical properties: Appearance and properties: colorless liquid with ether-like odor, turning yellow to black in the air or under sunlight. Melting point (°C): -88.7, boiling point (°C): 63.7~66, relative density (water=1): 0.9130, relative vapor density (air=1): 2.8, saturated vapor pressure (kpa): 18.5 (20°C) .
This product has anesthesia effect, which can make blood circulation, intestine, stomach and liver function abnormal. Irritating to eyes. Experimental data reported that it has a mutagenic effect. When heated, it releases corrosive fumes. Its vapor and air can form an explosive mixture, which can easily burn and explode when exposed to open fire and high heat. Reacts violently in contact with oxidants. Potentially explosive peroxides can be formed on contact with air or in light. Its vapor is heavier than air, and can spread to a considerable distance at a lower place. In case of high heat, the internal pressure of the container will increase, and there is a danger of cracking and explosion.
Storage: Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. Protect from direct sunlight. The storage temperature should not exceed 30℃. Keep container tightly closed. It should be stored separately from oxidants, acids, alkalis, and edible chemicals, and should not be stored together. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities. Prohibit the use of mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to sparks. Storage areas should be equipped with emergency release equipment and suitable containment materials.
Packaging and Storage: Packed in iron drums. Store in a cool dark place, pay attention to fire prevention.
Uses: It can be used as a solvent in solution polymerization. It can be used to synthesize pentadiene, pentanediol, acetylpropanol, ketones and 2-methyltetrahydrofuran. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used to synthesize vitamin B1, chloroquine phosphate and primaquine phosphate.
