Diamond Hazard Value Description
1 0
HEALTH   1 Exposure would cause irritation with only minor residual injury (e.g. acetone, sodium bromate, potassium chloride)
FIRE  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)
REACT   0 Normally stable, even under fire exposure conditions, and is not reactive with water (e.g. helium,N2)

1-Hexene Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid



ChEBI: An alkene that is hexane carrying a double bond at position 1.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with a petroleum like odor. Flash point -9°F. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Vapors heavier than air. Used as a solvent, paint thinner, and chemical reaction medium.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

1--HEXENE may react vigorously with strong oxidizing agents. May react exothermically with reducing agents to release hydrogen gas.


Irritant. Highly flammable, dangerous fire risk.

Health Hazard

Inhalation may cause giddiness or incoordination similar to that from gasoline vapor. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations may induce loss of consciousness or death.

Fire Hazard

Flash Point (°F): -15 ℃; Flammable Limits in Air (%): 1.2 (LEL); Fire Extinguishing Agents: Foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide; Fire Extinguishing Agents Not To Be Used: Water may be ineffective; Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Not pertinent; Behavior in Fire: Not pertinent; Ignition Temperature (°F): 521; Electrical Hazard: Not pertinent; Burning Rate: 8.1 mm/min.

Chemical Reactivity

Reactivity with Water No reaction; Reactivity with Common Materials: No reactions; Stability During Transport: Stable; Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not pertinent; Polymerization: Not pertinent; Inhibitor of Polymerization: Not pertinent.

Purification Methods

Purify it by stirring over Na/K alloy for at least 6hours, then fractionally distil it from sodium under nitrogen. [Beilstein 1 IV 828.]
