3,4-Diaminotoluene neutralizes 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.
Flash point data for 3,4-Diaminotoluene are not available. 3,4-Diaminotoluene is probably combustible.
