Urethane Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionEthyl carbamate occurs as colourless or white columnar crystals or granular powder. It is very soluble in water. With heat, ethyl carbamate undergoes decomposition and emits toxic fumes of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen oxides. Ethyl carbamate is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of a number of chemical products, for example, pharmaceuticals, in biochemical research and medicine, and as a solubiliser and co-solvent for pesticides and fumigants. Prior to World War II, ethyl carbamate saw relatively heavy use in the treatment of multiple myeloma before it was found to be toxic, carcinogenic, and largely ineffective. However, due to U.S. FDA regulations, ethyl carbamate has been withdrawn from pharmaceutical use. However, small quantities of ethyl carbamate are also used in laboratories as an anaesthetic for animals.
Chemical PropertiesColorless crystals or white powder; odorless, saltpeter-like taste. Solutions neutral to litmus. Soluble in water, alcohol, ether, glycerol, and chloroform; slightly soluble in olive oil. Combustible.
UsesNaturally occurring contaminant in fermented foods, particularly wine, stone-fruit brandies, and bread. This substance is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.
UsesIntermediate in organic synthesis. In the preparation and modification of amino resins. As solvent, solubilizer and cosolvent for various organic materials. Animal anesthetic in laboratory procedures.
General DescriptionOdorless colorless crystals or white powder. Sublimes readily at 217°F and 54 mm Hg. Cooling saline taste.
Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble. Aqueous solutions are neutral to litmus .
Reactivity ProfileUrethane is incompatible with alkalis, acids, chloral hydrate, camphor, menthol and thymol. Also incompatible with antipyrine and salol. May react with strong oxidizing agents. Liquefies with benzoic acid, resorcinol and salicylic acid. Reacts with phosphorus pentachloride to form an explosive product .
HazardToxic by ingestion.
Purification MethodsUrethane is best purified by fractional distillation, but it can be 20 25 1.4144. sublimed at ~103o/~50mm. It has also been recrystallised from *benzene. Its solubilitiy at room temperature is 2g/mL in H2O, 1.25g/mL in EtOH, 1.1g/mL in CHCl3, 0.67g/mL in Et2O and 0.03g/mL in olive oil. It is a suspected human carcinogen.[Beilstein 3 H 22, 3 IV 40.]
