Methoxyacetic acid Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

CLEAR COLOURLESS TO VERY SLIGHTLY YELLOW LIQUID

Uses

Synthesis.

Definition

ChEBI: A monocarboxylic acid that is acetic acid in which one of the methyl hydrogens is replaced by a methoxy group.

General Description

Colorless liquid.

Air & Water Reactions

Hygroscopic. Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

Methoxyacetic acid is incompatible with alkalis and metals.

Health Hazard

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: Methoxyacetic acid is corrosive.

Fire Hazard

Methoxyacetic acid is combustible.

Safety Profile

Moderately toxic by ingestion. An experimental teratogen. Experimental reproductive effects. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Purification Methods

Fractionally crystallise the acid by repeated partial freezing, then fractionally distil it under vacuum through a vacuum-jacketed Vigreux column ~20cm long (p 11). [Beilstein 3 IV 574.]
