Tetradecane Chemical Properties,Uses,Production


Tetradecane is an alkane hydrocarbon containing 14 carbon atoms. It is majorly used for the organic synthesis, and used as a kind of organic solvent. Its binary mixtures with hexadecane can be used as phase change materials (PCMs) for cool storage in district cooling systems for refrigeration and air-conditioning. It can also be used as a standard analysis agent in chromatography analysis. In the determination of silicate ion, tetradecane can be used as an internal standard for calibration.

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid


Organic synthesis, solvent standardized hydrocarbon, distillation chaser.

General Description

Colorless liquid. Must be preheated before ignition can occur.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Saturated aliphatic hydrocarbons, such as Tetradecane, may be incompatible with strong oxidizing agents like nitric acid. Charring of the hydrocarbon may occur followed by ignition of unreacted hydrocarbon and other nearby combustibles. In other settings, aliphatic saturated hydrocarbons are mostly unreactive. They are not affected by aqueous solutions of acids, alkalis, most oxidizing agents, and most reducing agents. When heated sufficiently or when ignited in the presence of air, oxygen or strong oxidizing agents, they burn exothermically to produce carbon dioxide and water.


A fire hazard. Lower flammable limit in air 0.5%.

Health Hazard

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: Explosion hazard: Moderate, in the form of vapor when exposed.

Purification Methods

Wash it successively with 4M H2SO4 and water. Dry it over MgSO4 and distil it several times under reduced pressure [Po. et al. J Am Chem Soc 108 5459 1986]. It is used as a standard in gas chromatography. [Beilstein 1 H 171, 1 IV 520.]
