o-Anisidine Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

Anisidine exists as ortho-, meta-, and paraisomers. They have characteristic amine (fishy) odors.
o-Anisidine (or o-methoxyaniline) is an aromatic amine with a methoxyl group ortho to the amino group of aniline. It is a colorless to yellowish, pink, or reddish liquid.o-Anisidine is soluble in water and mineral oils, and miscible with alcohol, benzene, acetone, and diethylether. o-Anisidine hydrochloride, a salt of o-anisidine, is a grayish crystalline solid or powder at room temperature and is soluble in water (NTP, 2011).

Physical properties

Colorless, yellow to reddish liquid with an amine-like odor. Becomes brown on exposure to air.

Uses

Similar to other aromatic amines, o-anisidine may cause methemglobinemia and cancer in humans. It is used mainly as an intermediate for the production of azo dyes and pigments. Other industrial uses of o-anisidine include synthesis of other dyes and pharmaceuticals, as a corrosion inhibitor for steel, and as an antioxidant for polymercaptan resins (IARC, 1999; HSDB, 2012).
Intermediate for azo dyes and for guaiacol.

General Description

Clear, yellowish to reddish or brown liquid with an amine (fishy) odor.

Air & Water Reactions

o-Anisidine darkens on exposure to air. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

o-Anisidine is sensitive to heat. o-Anisidine is also sensitive to exposure to light. o-Anisidine is incompatible with strong oxidizers. o-Anisidine is also incompatible with acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides and chloroformates. o-Anisidine will attack some forms of plastics, rubber and coatings. .

Hazard

Strong irritant. Toxic when absorbed through the skin. Possible carcinogen.

Fire Hazard

o-Anisidine is combustible.

Safety Profile

Confirmed carcinogen. Moderately toxic by ingestion. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.

Potential Exposure

Anisidines are used in the manufacture of azo dyes; pharmaceuticals; textile-processing chemicals Incompatibilities: Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine,bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides. Attacks some coatings and some forms of plastic and rubber.

Carcinogenicity

o-Anisidine is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen based on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals.

Environmental Fate

Biological. o-Anisidine should be biodegradable according to OECD guidelines (Brown and Labouerer (1983). Chemical/Physical. At influent concentrations (pH 3.0) of 10, 1.0, 0.1, and 0.01 mg/L, the GAC adsorption capacities were 52, 20, 7.8, and 3.0 mg/g, respectively. At pHs 7 and 9, the GAC adsorption capacities were 110, 50, 23, and 10 mg/g at influent concentrations of 10, 1.0, 0.1, and 0.01 mg/L, respectively (Dobbs and Cohen, 1980).

Shipping

UN2431 Anisidines, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials

Purification Methods

It is separated from the m-and p-isomers by steam distillation. It is also separated from its usual synthetic precursor o-nitroanisole by dissolving it in dilute HCl (pH <2.0) extracting the nitro impurity with Et2O, adjusting the pH to ~8.0 with NaOH, extracting the amine into Et2O or steam distilling. Extract the distillate with Et2O, dry the extract (Na2SO4), filter, evaporate and fractionate the residual oil. Protect the almost colourless oil from light which turns it yellow in color. [Biggs & Robinson J Chem Soc 3881961, Nodzu et al. Yakugaku Zasshi (J Pharm Soc Japan) 71 713, 715 1951, Beilstein 13 IV 806.]

Waste Disposal

Dissolve in combustible solvent (alcohols, benzene, etc.) and spray solution into furnace equipped with afterburner and scrubber, or burn spill residue on sand and soda ash absorbent in a furnace.
