Isopropyl nitrate Safety Profile

Mildly toxic by inhalation. Flammable liquid and dangerous fire hazard when exposed to heat, spark, or flames. Ignites spontaneously when compressed. The pure vapor ignites spontaneously at very low temperatures and pressures. An explosive of low sensitivity. It can be used as a rocket monopropellant. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx. Incompatible with Lewis acids. See also Nitrates.

Isopropyl nitrate Standards and Recommendations

DOT Classification:  3; Label: Flammable Liquid

Isopropyl nitrate Specification

  Isopropyl nitrate , with CAS number of 1712-64-7, can be called Isopropylester kyseliny dusicne ; nitric acid, 1-methylethyl ester ; propan-2-yl nitrate . It is a colourless liquid with a pleasant odor, Isopropyl nitrate (CAS NO.1712-64-7) ranges from slight to strong oxidizing agents. If mixed with reducing agents, including hydrides, sulfides and nitrides, they may begin a vigorous reaction that culminates in a detonation. Nitroalkanes are milder oxidizing agents, but still react violently with reducing agents at higher temperature and pressures. Nitroalkanes react with inorganic bases to form explosive salts. The presence of metal oxides increases the thermal sensitivity of nitroalkanes. Nitroalkanes with more than one nitro group are generally explosive. Contact with either strong oxidizers or with combustibles may cause fires and explosions.
