Butyl methacrylate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

clear colourless liquid with an ester-like odour

Chemical Properties

Butyl methacrylate is a flammable, colorless liquid with a mild odor.


Monomer for resins, solvent coatings, adhe- sives, oil additives; emulsions for textiles, leather, and paper finishing.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid. Flash point 130°F. Less dense (7.5 lb / gal) than water and insoluble in water. Hence floats on water. Vapors heavier than air. Used to make resins adhesives, and oil additives.

Air & Water Reactions

Flammable. Sensitive to moisture. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Butyl methacrylate reacts exothermically with acids. Reacts with oxidizing agents. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is generated with caustic solutions. Generates flammable hydrogen with alkali metals and hydrides. Polymerizes easily .


Toxic by ingestion. Moderate fire risk.

Health Hazard

Inhalation may cause nausea because of offensive odor. Contact with liquid causes irritation of eyes and mild irritation of skin. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach.

Fire Hazard

Behavior in Fire: Containers may explode due to polymerization.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by intraperitoneal route. Mddly toxic by ingestion, inhalation, and skin contact. An experimental teratogen. Experimental reproductive effects. A skin irritant. Flammable liquid when exposed to heat or flame. Explosive in the form of vapor when exposed to heat or flame. Violent polymerization can be caused by heat, moisture, oxidizers. To fight fire, use foam, dry chemical, CO2. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Potential Exposure

Forms an explosive mixture with air. Unless inhibitor is maintained at the proper level, oxidizers, heat, ultraviolet light, contamination, or moisture may cause polymerization. May accumulate static electrical charges and cause ignition of its vapors.

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, gemedical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit. Medical observation is recommended for 24 to 48 hours after breathing overexposure, as pulmonary edema may be delayed. As first aid for pulmonary edema, a doctor or authorized paramedic may consider administering a drug or other inhalation therapy


UN2227 Butyl methacrylate, stabilized, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3—Flammable liquid.

Purification Methods

Purify as for butyl acrylate. [Beilstein 2 IV 1525.]


Forms an explosive mixture with air. Unless inhibitor is maintained at the proper level, oxidizers, heat, ultraviolet light, contamination, or moisture may cause polymerization. May accumulate static electrical charges and cause ignition of its vapors

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.
