4-Nitrobenzyl chloride Usage And Synthesis
Chemical Propertieswhite to light yellow crystal powde
Chemical PropertiesBenzene, 1-(chloromethyl)-4-nitro-, is a crystalline solid.
DefinitionChEBI: A C-nitro compound that is nitrobenzene in which the hydrogen at position 4 is replaced by a chloromethyl group.
General DescriptionSolid.
Air & Water ReactionsMay react slowly with water.
Reactivity ProfileIncompatible with sodium hydroxide. [EPA, 1998]. A halogenated aromatic nitro compound. Aromatic nitro compounds range from slight to strong oxidizing agents. If mixed with reducing agents, including hydrides, sulfides and nitrides, they may begin a vigorous reaction that culminates in a detonation. The aromatic nitro compounds may explode in the presence of a base such as sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide even in the presence of water or organic solvents. The explosive tendencies of aromatic nitro compounds are increased by the presence of multiple nitro groups.
Health HazardPoisonous if swallowed or dust is inhaled.
Fire HazardIncompatible with sodium hydroxide.
Potential ExposureA chloronitrobenzene compound, used in organic synthesis.
ShippingUN3261 Corrosive solid, acidic, organic, n.o.s., Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8—Corrosive material, Technical Name Required. UN1578 Chloronitrobenzenes, solid or liquid, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1—Poisonous materials.
Purification MethodsCrystallise the chloride from CCl4, dry diethyl ether, or n-heptane, and dry it under vacuum. IRRITANT.[Beilstein 5 IV 856.]
IncompatibilitiesCan react with sulfuric acid. Keep away from oxidizers, amines, bases: sodium hydroxide, and potassium hydroxide; may cause fire and explosions. Incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents such as hydrides, certain amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals (potassium), and epoxides. Corrodes steel, some plastics and human tissue.
