Methacrylic acid Usage And Synthesis
Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid or crystals with an unpleasant odour.
Chemical PropertiesMethacrylic acid is a colorless liquid.
UsesMonomer for large-volume resins and polymers, organic synthesis. Many of the polymers are based on esters of the acid, as the methyl, butyl, or isobutyl esters.
DefinitionChEBI: An alpha,beta-unsaturated monocarboxylic acid that is acrylic acid in which the hydrogen at position 2 is substituted by a methyl group.
General DescriptionA clear colorless liquid (or low-melting solid) with a pungent odor. Corrosive to metals and tissue. Flash point 170°F. Melting point 61°F. May polymerize exothermically if heated or contaminated. If the polymerization takes place inside a container, the container may rupture violently. Less dense than water. Vapors heavier than air. Used to make plastics.
Air & Water ReactionsSoluble in water.
Reactivity ProfileMethacrylic acid reacts with strong oxidizing agents. Presents a storage hazard: violent exothermic polymerizations leading to explosion can occur spontaneously, particularly at low inhibitor or stabilizer concentrations [Anon., CISHC Chem. Safety Summ., 1979, 50, p. 34; Bond, J., Loss Prev. Bull., 1991, 101, p. 1].
HazardToxic material. Strong irritant to eyes and skin. Questionable carcinogen.
Health HazardINHALATION: Severe irritation to respiratory tract. EYES: Short contact can cause severe damage. SKIN: Causes severe irritation and burns. Ingestion: High hazard - may cause death or permanent injury on short exposure to small quantities. OTHER: May affect blood pressure temporarily.
Safety ProfilePoison by intraperitoneal route. Moderately toxic by ingestion and skin contact. Corrosive to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Mutation data reported. Flammable when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizers. A storage hazard; exothermic polymerization may occur spontaneously. To fight fire, use alcohol foam, spray, mist, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
Potential ExposureMethacrylic acid is used in preparation of methacrylates and carboxylated polymers; in the production of the material or its alkyl esters, as monomers or comonomers for synthetic resins for the production of plastic sheets, moldings, and fibers.
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. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. If victim is conscious, administer water or milk. 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.
ShippingUN2531 Methacrylic acid, stabilized, Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material.
Purification MethodsAqueous methacrylic acid (90%) is saturated with NaCl (to remove the bulk of the water), then the organic phase is dried with CaCl2 and distilled under vacuum. Polymerisation inhibitors should be added to the distillate and include 0.25% p-methoxyphenol, 0.1% hydroquinone, or 0.05% N,N'-diphenyl-p-phenylenediamine. [Beilstein 2 IV 1518.]
IncompatibilitiesVapor may form explosive mixture with air. A reducing agent; incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Aqueous solution is strongly acidic: incompatible with strong acids; caustics, ammonia, amines, isocyanates, alkylene oxides; epichlorohydrin. Will polymerize readily from heating above 59F/15C, or due to the presence of light, oxidizers (e.g., peroxides); or in the presence of traces of hydrochloric acid, with fire or explosion hazard. Attacks metals. Note: Typically contains 100 ppm of monomethyl ether hydroquinone (150-76-5) as an inhibitor to prevent polymerization
Waste DisposalDissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
