Ethyl methacrylate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid with an unpleasant odour


Polymers, chemical intermediates.

General Description

A colorless moderately toxic liquid with an acrid odor. Flash point of 70°F. Boiling point 278°F. Vapors irritate the eyes and respiratory system. Less dense than water. Not soluble in water. Used to make polymers and other chemicals.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. A very dangerous fire and explosion hazard. Not soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

May polymerize if heated for prolonged periods or accidentally contaminated. If polymerization takes place inside a container, the container may violently rupture. Can react with oxidizing materials. When heated to decomposition Ethyl methacrylate emits irritating fumes and acrid smoke [Sax, 9th ed., 1996, p. 1576].


Flammable, dangerous fire and explosion hazard. An irritant.

Health Hazard

Inhalation may cause irritation of the mucous membrane. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Contact with liquid irritates eyes and skin.

Fire Hazard

Behavior in Fire: Sealed containers may rupture explosively if hot. Heat can cause a violent polymerization reaction with rapid release of energy. Vapors are heavier than air and can travel to a source of ignition and flash back.

Fire Hazard

Flash Point (°F): 85 ℃; 80 ℃; Flammable Limits in Air (%): 1.8 (LFL); Fire Extinguishing Agents: Foam, dry chemical, carbon dioxide; Fire Extinguishing Agents Not To Be Used: Water may be ineffective; Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Data not available; Behavior in Fire: Sealed container may rupture explosively if hot. Heat can cause a violent polymerization reaction with rapid release of energy. Vapors are heavier than air and can travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back; Ignition Temperature (°F): 740; Electrical Hazard: Data not available; Burning Rate: 4.56 mm/min.

Chemical Reactivity

Reactivity with Water No reaction; Reactivity with Common Materials: No reaction; Stability During Transport: Stable; Neutralizing Agents for Acids and Caustics: Not pertinent; Polymerization: If proper concentration of inhibitor is not present or when material is hot, a violent polymerization reaction may occur; Inhibitor of Polymerization: Oxygen in the air inhibits polymerization.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. Mildly toxic by inhalation. Experimental teratogenic and reproductive effects. A skin irritant. A very dangerous fire and explosion hazard when exposed to heat, sparks, or flame; can react with oxidzing materials. To fight fire, use CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Purification Methods

Wash the ester successively with 5% aqueous NaNO2, 5% NaHSO3, 5% NaOH, then water. Dry it over MgSO4, add 0.2% (w/w) of phenyl-.-naphthylamine, and distil it through a short Vigreux column (p 11) [Schultz J Am Chem Soc 80 1854 1958]. [Beilstein 2 IV 1523.]
