Quinoline Specification

1. Introduction of Quinoline
Quinoline is also named as 1-Azanaphthalene ; 1-Benzazine ; 2,3-Benzopyridine ; AI3-01241 ; B-500 ; Benzo(b)pyridine ; Benzopyridine ; Benzopyridine (VAN) ; Chinoleine; Chinolin; Chinolin [Czech]; Chinoline; Leucol ; Leukol ; Quinolin ; USAF EK-218. Quinoline is colourless to brown liquid with a peculiar odor. It is soluble in water. Contact may irritate to skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. It may be toxic by ingestion. Quinoline is hygroscopic. It absorbs as much as 22% water. Quinoline is sensitive to light and moisture. Quinoline darkens on storage. It is a weak base. A potentially explosive reaction may occur with hydrogen peroxide. Quinoline reacts violently with dinitrogen tetraoxide. It also reacts violently with perchromates. It is incompatible with (linseed oil + thionyl chloride) and maleic anhydride. Quinoline is also incompatible with strong oxidizers and strong acids. Quinoline can be unpredictably violent. Quinoline dissolves sulfur, phosphorus and arsenic trioxide. Quinoline may attack some forms of plastics. It is a preparative hazard. Vapors are irritating to nose and throat and may cause headaches, dizziness, and nausea if inhaled. Ingestion causes irritation of mouth and stomach; vomiting may occur.

5. Safety Information of Quinoline
Poison by ingestion, subcutaneous, and intraperitoneal routes. Moderately toxic by skin contact. A skin and severe eye irritant. Mutation data reported. Questionable carcinogen with experimental neoplastigenic and tumorigenic data. It can cause retinitis similar to that caused by naphthalene but without causing opacity of the lens. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. Its preparation has caused many industrial explosions. Potentially explosive reaction with hydrogen peroxide. Violent reaction with dinitrogen tetraoxide, perchromates. Incompatible with linseed oil + thionyl chloride, maleic anhydride. Unpredictably violent. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.
