Glycidyl phenyl ether Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

Phenyl glycidyl ether is a colorless liquid with an unpleasant sweet odor

Uses

Phenyl glycidyl ether (PGE) is used as anintermediate in organic syntheses.

General Description

Colorless liquid.

Air & Water Reactions

Ethers tend to form unstable peroxides when exposed to oxygen. Ethyl, isobutyl, ethyl tert-butyl, and ethyl tert-pentyl ether are particularly hazardous in this respect. Ether peroxides can sometimes be observed as clear crystals deposited on containers or along the surface of the liquid. Slightly soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Glycidyl phenyl ether, an ether, can act as a base. They form salts with strong acids and addition complexes with Lewis acids. The complex between diethyl ether and boron trifluoride is an example. Ethers may react violently with strong oxidizing agents. In other reactions, which typically involve the breaking of the carbon-oxygen bond, ethers are relatively inert.

Health Hazard

PGE is a toxic compound exhibiting moderate irritant action and carcinogenicity inanimals. Application of 0.25 mg resulted insevere eye irritation in rabbits, while 500 mgcaused moderate skin irritation over a periodof 24 hours. Prolonged or repeated contactcan cause moderate irritation and skin sensitization in humans.
The symptoms of its toxicity in animalswere depression of the central nervous system and paralysis of the respiratory tract.Prolonged exposure caused changes in thekidney, liver, thymus, and testes, and lossof hair in rats. The toxicity of this compound in humans is low and the health hazardcan arise primarily from its skin-sensitizationaction.
LD50 value, oral (mice): 1400 mg/kg
DGE showed carcinogenicity in rats, causingnasal cancer.

Fire Hazard

Glycidyl phenyl ether is probably combustible.

Contact allergens

This monoglycidyl derivative is a reactive diluent in epoxy resins Bisphenol A type. It is a component of epoxy paints, epoxy glues, and epoxy resins. Sensitization has been observed in many professions, such as in construction workers, marble workers, ceramic workers, and shoemakers.

Safety Profile

Confirmed carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic data. Moderately toxic by ingestion, skin contact, and subcutaneous routes. A severe eye and skin irritant. Experimental reproductive effects. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. Used as a chemical intermediate. See also ETHERS

Potential Exposure

PGE is used to increase storage time and stability of halogenated compounds; as a reactive diluent in uncured epoxy resins to reduce the viscosity of the uncured system for ease in casting; adhesive, and laminating applications. NIOSH once estimated that 8000 workers are potentially exposed to PGE.

Shipping

UN2810 Toxic liquids, organic, n.o.s., Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials, Technical Name Required.

Incompatibilities

Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides, amines, and curing agents. PGE can presumably form explosive peroxides

Waste Disposal

Concentrated waste containing no peroxides-discharge liquid at a controlled rate near a pilot flame. Concentrated waste containing peroxidesperforation of a container of the waste from a safe distance followed by open burning.
