NFPA 704

Diamond Hazard Value Description
3 1
Health   3 Short exposure could cause serious temporary or moderate residual injury (e.g. liquid hydrogen, sulfuric acid, calcium hypochlorite, hexafluorosilicic acid)
Flammability   3 Liquids and solids (including finely divided suspended solids) that can be ignited under almost all ambient temperature conditions . Liquids having a flash point below 22.8 °C (73 °F) and having a boiling point at or above 37.8 °C (100 °F) or having a flash point between 22.8 and 37.8 °C (73 and 100 °F). (e.g. gasoline, acetone)
Instability   1 Normally stable, but can become unstable at elevated temperatures and pressures (e.g. propene)

Benzotrifluoride Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

Clear colourless to light yellow liquid


An alternative solvent to dichloromethane


In dye chemistry; in the manufacture of substituted benzotrifluorides contg an ethylenic group, used in high polymer chemistry; in dielectric fluids, such as transformer oils.


ChEBI: A fluorohydrocarbon that is fluoroform in which the hydrogen is substituted by a phenyl group.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with an aromatic odor. Flash point of 54°F. Vapors are heavier than air. Insoluble in water and slightly denser than water. May be toxic by inhalation.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Benzotrifluoride may react with oxidizing materials, strong bases and reducing agents.


Highly toxic by inhalation. Flammable, dangerous fire risk.

Health Hazard

Inhalation or contact with material may irritate or burn skin and eyes. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control may cause pollution.

Fire Hazard

HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water.

Purification Methods

Purify benzotrifluoride by repeated treatment with boiling aqueous Na2CO3 (until no test for chloride ion is obtained), dry it with K2CO3, then with P2O5, and fractionally distil it. [Beilstein 5 IV 802.]
