NFPA 704

Diamond Hazard Value Description
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)

Propionyl chloride Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

clear liquid


Chemical intermediate.

General Description

A colorless liquid with a pungent odor. Flash point of 50°F. Corrosive and very irritating to skin and eyes. Used to make other chemicals.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Vigorously reacts with water to form propionic acid and hydrochloric acid [Merck 11th ed. 1989].

Reactivity Profile

Acid halides, such as Propionyl chloride, are water reactive; some are violently reactive. They are incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, alcohols, amines, and alkali. May react vigorously or explosively if mixed with diisopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts [J. Haz. Mat., 1981, 4, 291].


Strong irritant to skin.

Health Hazard

May cause toxic effects if inhaled or ingested/swallowed. Contact with substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Fire will produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.

Fire Hazard

Flammable/combustible material. May be 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.

Safety Profile

A corrosive irritant to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame; can react vigorously with oxidizing materials. Reacts with water or steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes. Exothermic reaction with diisopropyl ether produces much gas. The reaction may be dangerous if confmed. To fight fire, use CO2, dry chemical; do not use water. When heated to decomposition it emits lughly toxic fumes of Cl-. See also HYDROCHLORIC ACID.
