Fluorobenzene Usage And Synthesis

Description

Fluorobenzene is a colourless, highly flammable liquid, stable and incompatible with oxidising agents. It is not compatible with oxidising agents such as perchlorates, peroxides, permanganates, chlorates, nitrates, chlorine, bromine and fluorine, ammonium nitrate, chromic acid, halogens, and nitric acid. It is used as an insecticide and as a reagent for plastic and resin polymers.

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

Fluorobenzene is a colorless liquid.

Uses

Insecticide and larvicide intermediate, identification reagent for plastic or resin polymers.

Definition

ChEBI: The simplest member of the class of monofluorobenzenes that is benzene carrying a single fluoro substituent.

General Description

A clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic aromatic odor. About the same density as water. Flash point 5°F. Vapors heavier than air. May irritate the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Used as an insecticide, larvacide and as a reagent for plastic or resin polymers.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Slightly soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.

Hazard

Flammable, dangerous fire risk. Irritant.

Health Hazard

Irritating to skin, eyes and mucous membranes. Repeated exposure of skin may cause dermatitis due to defatting action. Chronic inhalation of vapors or mist may result to damage to lungs, liver and kidneys. Acute vapor exposures can cause symptoms ranging from coughing to transient anesthesia and central nervous system depression.

Safety Profile

: Mddly toxic by ingestion and inhalation. A very dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizers. To fight fire, use water spray, mist, foam, dry chemical, CO2. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of F-

Potential Exposure

Fluorobenzene is used as an insecti cide and as a reagent for plastic or resin polymers.

Shipping

UN2387 Fluorobenzene, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.

Purification Methods

Dry fluorobenzene for several days with P2O5, then fractionally distil it. [Beilstein 5 H 198, 5 IV 632.]

Incompatibilities

Vapor may form explosive mixture with air. Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, perox ides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluo rine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides.
