oxidopamine Chemical Properties,Usage,Production
ChEBI: A benzenetriol that is phenethylamine in which the hydrogens at positions 2, 4, and 5 on the phenyl ring are replaced by hydroxy groups. It occurs naturally in human urine, but is also produced as a metabolite of the drug DOPA (used for the treatment of Pa kinson's disease).
Solid. Used as a pharmacological agent.
Amines are chemical bases. They neutralize acids to form salts plus water. These acid-base reactions are exothermic. The amount of heat that is evolved per mole of amine in a neutralization is largely independent of the strength of the amine as a base. Amines may be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen is generated by amines in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
SYMPTOMS: Symptoms of exposure to oxidopamine may include a prolonged decomposition in catecholamine content of the heart (shown to be due to the destruction of sympathetic nerve endings).
Flash point data for oxidopamine are not available. oxidopamine is probably combustible.
