TOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
2-Ethylaniline neutralizes acids in exothermic reactions to form salts plus water. May react with acids to release toxic fumes of aniline and oxides of nitrogen. Reacts violently with oxidizing materials. 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.
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosion hazards. Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. Substance may be transported in a molten form.
clear yellow to red-brownish liquid
A brown liquid. Insoluble in water and less dense than water. Hence floats on water. Flash point 185°F. May irritate skin, eyes and mucous membranes. Toxic by ingestion, inhalation or skin absorption.
