Colorless transparent liquid, solidified into ice crystal at low temperature. Has a pungent odor. It is miscible with organic solvents such as water, ethanol, ether and carbon tetrachloride, but insoluble in carbon disulfide. It is flammable, corrosive, and highly irritating, and can cause burns to the human body. It is flammable, and its vapor and air can form an explosive mixture, which can cause combustion and explosion in case of open fire and high heat. Danger of explosion in contact with chromic acid, sodium peroxide, nitric acid or other oxidizing agents.

  • This product is a colorless clear liquid or a colorless crystal block; it has a strong odor.
  • This product can be freely mixed with water, ethanol, glycerin or most volatile oils and fatty oils.


Common analytical reagents. Universal solvent and non-aqueous titration solvent. Used in the manufacture of acetate, cellulose acetate, medicine, pigments, esters, plastics, fragrances, etc.
