Propyl chloroformate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

Propyl chloroformate is a colorless liquid.


Organic synthesis, military poison gas (lachry- mator).

General Description

A colorless liquid. May be decomposed by water. Severely irritates skin and eyes. Very toxic by ingestion, inhalation or skin absorption. Denser than water and vapors heavier than air. Flash point 50°F. Used to make other chemicals.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Water (moisture in air or soil) reacts with generation of heat and hydrochloric acid.

Reactivity Profile

Unstable, decomposes spontaneously to form hydrochloric acid and other products. Avoid moist air. [EPA, 1998]. 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].


Toxic by inhalation and ingestion, strong irritant to eyes.

Health Hazard

Strongly irritating to eyes and mucous membranes. Poisonous; may be fatal if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through skin.

Fire Hazard

When heated to decomposition, Propyl chloroformate emits toxic fumes of chlorine containing compounds. Propyl chloroformate is a flammable/combustible material; Propyl chloroformate may be ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may travel to a source of ignition and flash back. Container may explode in heat or fire. Vapor explosion and poison hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution. Gradually decomposed by water and alcohol. Unstable, decomposes spontaneously to form hydrochloric acid and other products. Avoid moist air.

Safety Profile

Poison by skin contact. Moderately toxic by ingestion and inhalation. A corrosive irritant to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Flammable when exposed to heat or flame, can react vigorously with oxidizing materials. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl-. Used as a reactive intermediate to polymerization initiators.

Potential Exposure

Propyl chloroformate is used in organic synthesis; as an intermediate for polymerization initiators; may have been used as a military poison gas.

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, includ- ing 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 medi- cal attention. If victim is conscious, administer water, or milk. Do not induce vomiting. Keep victim quiet and main- tain normal body temperature. Effects may be delayed; keep victim under observation.


UN2740 n-Propyl chloroformate, Hazard class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poison Inhalation Hazard, 3-Flammable liquid, 8-Corrosive material. Inhalation Hazard Zone B


Propyl chloroformate forms explosive mixture with air. Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explo- sions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides, water and alcohols. Reaction with water forms heat and hydrochloric acid. Attacks some metals and coating in the presence of moisture.
