Uses and Hazards of Bromopropane Uses and Hazards of Bromopropane

There are still many people who are more sensitive to chemical plants and chemical products. It is true that many chemical substances are lively, flammable, explosive and toxic, but the related products produced by using them have been diluted. If they are well preserved, they are also No problem will occur. Bromopropane is a common intermediate that is widely used in industrial, industrial and pharmaceutical industries. So, what are the dangers of bromopropane?

1. What are the hazards of bromopropane?

Bromopropane is a colorless or light yellow transparent liquid, neutral or slightly acidic, can be mixed with alcohol and ether in any proportion, and is slightly soluble in water. Bromopropane, as a raw material for organic synthesis, is used in pesticides to synthesize organophosphorus insecticides and acaricides: thioprophos, prothion, profenofos, etc. It can also be used in medicine, dyes, and perfume industries.

Bromopropane is very flammable and toxic, and water and foam fire extinguishing agents, carbon dioxide, dry chemical fire extinguishing agents, and carbon tetrachloride can be used to extinguish fires. Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The library temperature should not exceed 37℃. Keep container tightly closed. It should be stored separately from oxidants, alkalis, active metal powders, etc. Do not mix storage. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities. The use of mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to sparks is prohibited, and the storage area should be equipped with emergency leakage treatment equipment and suitable containment materials.

For operators, strict pre-job training must be done before taking up the job, and basic protective measures must be taken after passing the job to prohibit direct physical contact. In case of accidental contact and poisoning occurs, be sure to immediately give first aid on the spot, and then send it to a doctor for treatment. In addition, for chemical plants, in addition to strengthening the safety awareness of staff, the repair and maintenance of equipment should not be slack. The equipment should be replaced when it expires, and do not continue to use it to avoid accidents.

2. What are the uses of bromopropane?

Although some people are still more sensitive to the chemical industry, and they are nervous when they see some large tank trucks marked with flammable and explosive labels on the road, in fact, chemical products have fully penetrated into all aspects of our lives without knowing it, and become people's daily life. Indispensable part. Bromopropane is a common intermediate involved in the production of many chemical products. So, what are the uses of bromopropane?

Bromopropane can be obtained from n-propanol and hydrobromic acid, or n-propanol and sodium bromide. It is colorless or light yellow transparent liquid, neutral or slightly acidic, sensitive to light, and toxic when heated or pyrolyzed in contact with flame. bromide gas. Bromopropane is mainly used in the manufacture of medicines, pesticides, dyes, fragrances, etc. It is also used as a raw material for Grignard reagents and an alkylating agent for aromatic compounds, as an intermediate for the drugs propylthiamine, probenecid, and as a solvent, experimental chamber reagents.
