N-OCTANE Usage And Synthesis
Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
Chemical PropertiesOctane is a colorless liquid with a gasoline-like odor. The odor threshold is 4 ppm and 48 ppm (New Jersey Fact Sheet).
DefinitionChEBI: A straight chain alkane composed of 8 carbon atoms.
General DescriptionColorless liquid with an odor of gasoline. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Hence floats on water. Produces irritating vapor.
Air & Water ReactionsHighly flammable. Insoluble in water.
Reactivity ProfileMay be incompatible with strong oxidizing agents like nitric acid. Charring may occur followed by ignition of unreacted material and other nearby combustibles. In other settings, mostly unreactive. 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, burns exothermically to produce mostly carbon dioxide and water.
Health HazardInhalation of concentrated vapor may cause irritation of respiratory tract, depression, and pulmonary edema. Liquid can cause irritation of eyes and (on prolonged contact) irritation and cracking of skin. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach. Aspiration causes severe lung irritation, rapidly developing pulmonary edema, and central nervous system excitement, followed by depression.
Fire HazardBehavior in Fire: Vapor is heavier than air and may travel a considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back.
Safety ProfilePoison by intravenous route. May act as a simple asphyxiant. See also ARGON for a description of simple asphyxiants. A narcotic in high concentration. Human dermal exposure to undiluted octane for five hours resulted in blister formation but no anesthesia; exposure for one hour caused diffuse burning sensation. A very dangerous fire hazard and severe explosion hazard when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizers. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also ALKANES.
Potential ExposureOctane is used as a solvent; as a fuel; as an intermediate in organic synthesis; and in azeotropicdistillations.
First aidIf 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.
ShippingUN1262 Octanes, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.
Purification MethodsExtract the octane repeatedly with conc H2SO4 or chlorosulfonic acid, then wash it with water, dry and distil it. Alternatively, purify it by azeotropic distillation with EtOH, followed by washing with water to remove the EtOH, drying and distilling it. For further details, see n-heptane. It is also purified by zone melting. [Beilstein 1 H 159, 1 I 60, 1 II 122, 1 III 457, 1 IV 412.]
IncompatibilitiesReacts with strong oxidizers, causing fire and explosion hazard. Attacks some forms of plastics, rubber and coatings.
Waste DisposalDissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an after burner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
