2-Octyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one is probably combustible.
This isothiazolinone, contained in relatively few products
compared to other isothiazolinones, is used in
cleaning and polishing agents, latex paints, stains,
adhesives, wood and leather preservatives, metalworking
fluids (cutting oils), and plastic manufacture.
2-Octyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one reacts as an isothiocyanate. Isothiocyanates are incompatible with many classes of compounds, reacting exothermically to release toxic gases. Reactions with amines, aldehydes, alcohols, alkali metals, ketones, mercaptans, strong oxidizers, hydrides, phenols, and peroxides can cause vigorous releases of heat.
Fungicide. Biocide in cooling-tower water, paints, cutting oils, cosmetics and shampoo; for leather preservation.
Fungicide. Antimicrobial agent
Clear dark amber liquid. Used as a fungicide.
