Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
Trioctyl trimellitate is probably combustible.
Trioctyl trimellitate is an ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides.
Trioctyl Trimellitate is a plasticizer that was evaluated for endocrine disrupting activities through estrogen receptor alpha binding assay.
