Flash point data for LDAO are not available. LDAO is probably nonflammable.
Clear yellow Liquid
LDAO is less basic than the tertiary amine from which LDAO is derived, but still reacts with strong acids in exothermic reactions to form salts plus water. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen may be generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
