Fluoranthene Chemical Properties,Usage,Production

Chemical Properties

Fluoranthene is a polycyclic hydrocarbon and a colorless crystalline solid.

Uses

Fluoranthene is a component of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, also known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and is usually bound to small particulate matter present in urban air, industrial and natural combustion emissions, and cigarette smoke.

Definition

ChEBI: An ortho- and peri-fused polycyclic arene consisting of a naphthalene and benzene unit connected by a five-membered ring.

Synthesis Reference(s)

Journal of the American Chemical Society, 72, p. 4786, 1950 DOI: 10.1021/ja01166a124
Tetrahedron Letters, 33, p. 1675, 1992 DOI: 10.1016/S0040-4039(00)91703-9

General Description

Light yellow fine crystals.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Vigorous reactions, sometimes amounting to explosions, can result from the contact between aromatic hydrocarbons, such as Fluoranthene, and strong oxidizing agents. They can react exothermically with bases and with diazo compounds. Substitution at the benzene nucleus occurs by halogenation (acid catalyst), nitration, sulfonation, and the Friedel-Crafts reaction.

Hazard

Questionable carcinogen.

Health Hazard

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: When heated to decomposition Fluoranthene emits acrid smoke and fumes.

Health Hazard

Fluoranthene exhibited mild oral and dermaltoxicity in animals. The acute toxicity is lowerthan that of phenanthrene. An oral LD50 valuein rats is reported as 2000 mg/kg. It may causeskin tumor at the site of application. However,any carcinogenic action from this compoundin animals is unknown..

Fire Hazard

Flash point data for Fluoranthene are not available. Fluoranthene is probably combustible.

Safety Profile

Poison by intravenous route. Moderately toxic by ingestion and skin contact. Questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. Human mutation data reported. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.

Potential Exposure

Fluoranthene, a PAH, is produced from the pyrolytic processing of organic raw materials, such as coal and petroleum at high temperatures. It is also known to occur naturally as a product of plant biosynthesis. Fluoranthene is ubiquitous in the environment and has been detected in United States air; in foreign and domestic drink ing waters and in food-stuffs. It is also contained in ciga rette smoke. Individuals living in areas which are heavily industrialized; and in which large amounts of fossil fuels are burned, would be expected to have greatest exposure from ambient sources of fluoranthene. In addition, certain occupations e.g., coke oven workers, steelworkers, roofers, automobile mechanics) would also be expected to have elevated levels of exposure relative to the general popula tion. Exposure to fluoranthene will be considerably increased among tobacco smokers or those who are exposed to smokers in closed environments (i.e., indoors).

Source

Detected in 8 diesel fuels at concentrations ranging from 0.060 to 13 mg/L with a mean value of 0.113 mg/L (Westerholm and Li, 1994); in a distilled water-soluble fraction of used motor oil at a concentration range of 1.3 to 1.5 μg/L (Chen et al., 1994). Lee et al. (1992) reported concentration ranges 1.50-125 mg/L and ND-0.5 μg/L in diesel fuel and the corresponding aqueous phase (distilled water), respectively (Lee et al., 1992). Schauer et al. (1999) reported fluoranthene in a diesel-powered medium-duty truck exhaust at an emission rate of 53.0 μg/km. Identified in Kuwait and South Louisiana crude oils at concentrations of 2.9 and 5.0 ppm, respectively (Pancirov and Brown, 1975).
California Phase II reformulated gasoline contained fluoranthene at a concentration of 1.15 g/kg. Gas-phase tailpipe emission rates from gasoline-powered automobiles with and without catalytic converters were approximately 4.25 and 160 μg/km, respectively (Schauer et al., 2002).
Detected in groundwater beneath a former coal gasification plant in Seattle, WA at a concentration of 50 μg/L (ASTR, 1995). The concentration of fluoranthene in coal tar and the maximum concentration reported in groundwater at a mid-Atlantic coal tar site were 6,500 and 0.015 mg/L, respectively (Mackay and Gschwend, 2001). Based on laboratory analysis of 7 coal tar samples, fluoranthene concentrations ranged from 1,500 to 13,000 ppm (EPRI, 1990).Lehmann et al. (1984) reported fluoranthene concentrations of 64.7 mg/g in a commercial anthracene oil and 17,400 to 30,900 mg/kg in three high-temperature coal tars. Identified in hightemperature coal tar pitches used in roofing operations at concentrations ranging from 5,200 to 38,800 mg/kg (Arrendale and Rogers, 1981).
Fluoranthene was detected in soot generated from underventilated combustion of natural gas doped with toluene (3 mole %) (Tolocka and Miller, 1995). Fluoranthene was also detected in 9 commercially available creosote samples at concentrations ranging from 55,000 to 120,000 mg/kg (Kohler et al., 2000).
Detected in asphalt fumes at an average concentration of 20.48 ng/m3 (Wang et al., 2001). An impurity in commercial available pyrene (Marciniak, 2002).
Schauer et al. (2001) measured organic compound emission rates for volatile organic compounds, gas-phase semi-volatile organic compounds, and particle-phase organic compounds from the residential (fireplace) combustion of pine, oak, and eucalyptus. The respective gas-phase and particle-phase emission rates of fluoranthene were 3.05 and 3.95 mg/kg of pine burned, 3.61 and 1.20 mg/kg of oak burned, and 3.75 and 0.509 mg/kg of eucalyptus burned.

Incompatibilities

Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explo sions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides. Compound can react exo thermically with bases and with diazo compounds. Substitution at the benzene nucleus occurs by halogenation (acid catalyst), nitration, sulfonation, and the Friedel Crafts reaction.

Waste Disposal

Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinera tor equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed. Consult with environmental regulatory agencies for guidance on acceptable disposal practices. Generators of waste containing this contaminant (≥100 kg/mo) must con form with EPA regulations governing storage, transportation, treatment, and waste disposal.
