ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: Irritant.
Colorless mobile liquid with a mild pleasant odor.
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.
Halogenated aliphatic compounds, such as 1,4-Dichlorobutane, are moderately or very reactive. Reactivity generally decreases with increased degree of substitution of halogen for hydrogen atoms. Materials in this group may be incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents. Also, they may be incompatible with many amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals, and epoxides. 1,4-Dichlorobutane can react vigorously with oxidizing materials.
