[Chemical Properties]

Colorless to light yellow liqui
[Uses]

2-Aminophenol is an isomer of 4-Aminophenol (A618920) and is used as a reagent for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds and dyes.
[Definition]

ChEBI: The aminophenol which has the single amino substituent located ortho to the phenolic -OH group.
[General Description]

Off-white crystals or beige powder.
[Reactivity Profile]

O-AMINOPHENOL(95-55-6) can react with oxidizing agents. THF forms explosive products with 2-aminophenol [Lewis 3227].
[Air & Water Reactions]

Protect from air and light. Insoluble in water.
[Potential Exposure]

Workers may be exposed to oAminophenol during its use as a chemical intermediate; in the manufacture of azo and sulfur dyes; and in the photographic industry. There is potential for consumer exposure to o-Aminophenol because of its use in dyeing hair, fur, and leather. The compound is a constituent of 75 registered cosmetic products suggesting the potential for widespread consumer exposure. p-Aminophenol is used mainly as a dye, dye intermediate and as a photographic developer; and in small quantities in analgesic drug preparation. Consumer exposure to p-aminophenol may occur from use as a hairdye or as a component in cosmetic preparations. mAminophenol is used mainly as a dye intermediate
[First aid]

If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit.
[Fire Hazard]

Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. Substance may be transported in a molten form.
[Shipping]

UN2512 Aminophenols (o-; m-; p-), Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials
[Incompatibilities]

These phenol/cresol materials can react with oxidizers; reaction may be violent. Incompatible with strong reducing substances such as alkali metals, hydrides, nitrides, and sulfides. Flammable gas (H2) may be generated, and the heat of the reaction may cause the gas to ignite and explode. Heat may be generated by the acidbase reaction with bases; such heating may initiate polymerization of the organic compound. Reacts with boranes, alkalies, aliphatic amines, amides, nitric acid, sulfuric acid. Phenols are sulfonated very readily (e.g., by concentrated sulfuric acid at room temperature). These reactions generate heat. Phenols are also nitrated very rapidly, even by dilute nitric acid and can explode when heated. Many phenols form metal salts that may be detonated by mild shock.
[Description]

o-Aminophenol is contained in hair dyes and can cause contact dermatitis in hairdressers.
[Waste Disposal]

Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
[Synthesis Reference(s)]

Synthetic Communications, 13, p. 495, 1983 DOI: 10.1080/00397918308081828
[Purification Methods]

Purify it by dissolving it in hot water, decolorising with activated charcoal, filtering and cooling to induce crystallisation. Maintain an atmosphere of N2 over the hot phenol solution to prevent its oxidation [Charles & Freiser J Am Chem Soc 74 1385 1952]. It can also be crystallised from EtOH using the same precautions. [Beilstein 13 IV 805.]
