Mixed picoline is a member of the compound class of picoline. Picoline is an organic compound containing a pyridine ring substituted by a methyl group at one or more positions. Mixed picoline is soluble in water (in water) and is a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Mixed methyl pyridines can be found in sweet oranges and teas, which makes mixed methyl pyridines a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Mixed picoline is an organic compound, it is one of the three positional isomers of picoline, and its structure changes according to where the methyl group is attached around the pyridine ring. This colorless liquid is the precursor of pyridine derivatives and can be used in the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries. Mixed picoline, like pyridine, is a colorless liquid with a strong odor and a weak base.
Mixed methylpyridine is flammable and releases irritating or toxic smoke (or gas) in a fire. Above 38°C an explosive vapor/air mixture may be formed. Therefore, open flames, sparks and smoking are prohibited. Use closed systems, ventilation and explosion-proof electrical equipment above 38°C. In case of emergencies, water spray, powder, alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide can be used. Measures to deal with fire: spray water to cool down. Therefore, it should be noted that the mixed methyl pyridine should be stored separately from strong oxidants.
After inhaling mixed picoline, cough, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, nausea, etc. will occur; redness and burning sensation after contact with the skin; redness and pain in the eyes and severe deep burns. After ingesting, I have abdominal pain, burning sensation, and diarrhea. Therefore, workers should use ventilation, local exhaust or respiratory protection devices in the work area, including protective gloves, protective clothing, wear masks or goggles and combined with respiratory protection. Do not eat, drink or smoke during work. And qualified chemical intermediates manufacturers should equip personal protective equipment.
If you encounter an emergency of mixed picoline, you need to breathe fresh air, rest, and refer to a doctor. Take off contaminated clothes, rinse your skin with plenty of water or shower, and seek medical attention immediately. First rinse with plenty of water for a few minutes, then seek medical attention. Rinse your mouth and don't induce vomiting. Personal protection must be done: chemical protective clothing, including self-contained breathing apparatus. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as much as possible. Soak up the remaining liquid with sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of in accordance with local regulations.
