tert-Butylamine Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

Butyl amines are highly flammable, colorless liquids (n-turns yellow on standing) with ammoniacal or fishlike odors. n-isomer:


Intermediate for rubber accelerators, insecti- cides, fungicides, dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals.


ChEBI: A primary aliphatic amine that is ethylamine substituted by two methyl groups at position 1.

General Description

A clear colorless liquid with an ammonia-like odor. Flash point 70°F. Less dense (at 6.2 lb / gal) than water. Vapors heavier than air. Toxic oxides of nitrogen produced during combustion.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. May be sensitive to air . Soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

tert-Butylamine neutralizes acids in exothermic reactions to form salts plus water. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen is generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides. Undergoes highly exothermic reaction with 2,2-dibromo-1,3-dimethylcyclopropanoic acid [J. Chem. Soc., 1, 1979, 2324].


Skin irritant. Flammable, dangerous fire risk.

Health Hazard

Inhalation causes irritation of nose, mouth, and lungs. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Contact with liquid causes severe irritation of eyes and moderate irritation of skin.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic oxides of nitrogen may form in fire.

Fire Hazard

Flash Point (°F): 16 ℃; Flammable Limits in Air (%): 1.7-8.9 (at 212 °F); Fire Extinguishing Agents: Dry chemical, alcohol foam, carbon dioxide; Fire Extinguishing Agents Not To Be Used: Water may be ineffective; Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic oxides of nitrogen may form; Behavior in Fire: No data; Ignition Temperature (°F): 716; Electrical Hazard: No data; Burning Rate: 7 mm/min.

Chemical Reactivity

Reactivity with Water No reaction; Reactivity with Common Materials: Liquid will attack some plastics; Stability During Transport: Stable; Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Flush with water; Polymerization: Not pertinent; Inhibitor of Polymerization: Not pertinent.

Safety Profile

Poison by ingestion. Moderately toxic to humans by inhalation. A corrosive liquid. See also n-BUTYLAMINE and AMINES. Very dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat or flame. Very exothermic reaction with 2,2-dibromo-l,3 dimethylcyclopropanoic acid. To fight fire, use alcohol foam. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.

Potential Exposure

Alert: (n-isomer): Possible risk of forming tumors, suspected of causing genetic defects, suspected reprotoxic hazard, Primary irritant (w/o allergic reaction), (sec-isomer): Drug. n-Butylamine is used in pharmaceuticals; dyestuffs, rubber, chemicals, emulsifying agents; photography, desizing agents for textiles; pesticides, and synthetic agents. sec-Butylamine is used as a fungistate. tert-Butylamine is used as a chemical intermediate in the production of tert-Butylaminoethyl methacrylate (a lube oil additive); as an intermediate in the production of rubber and in rust preventatives and emulsion deterrents in petroleum products. It is used in the manufacture of several drugs

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, get medical attention. Rinse out mouth and do not induce vomiting. 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


UN1125 n-Butylamine, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3—Flammable liquid, 8—Corrosive material. UN2014 Isobutylamine, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3—Flammable liquid, 8—Corrosive material

Purification Methods

Dry it with KOH or LiAlH4, and/or distil it from CaH2 or BaO. [Beilstein 4 IV 657.]


May form explosive mixture with air. May accumulate static electrical charges, and may causeignition of its vapors. n-Butylamine is a weak base; reacts with strong oxidizers and acids, causing fire and explosion hazard. Incompatible with organic anhydrides; isocyanates, vinyl acetate; acrylates, substituted allyls; alkylene oxides; epichlorohydrin, ketones, aldehydes, alcohols, glycols, phenols, cresols, caprolactum solution. Attacks some metals in presence of moisture. The tert-isomer will attack some forms of plastics

Waste Disposal

Use a licensed professional waste disposal service to dispose of this material. Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner andscrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
