6-tert-Butyl-m-cresol Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

clear colorless viscous liquid

Synthesis Reference(s)

Tetrahedron Letters, 31, p. 6977, 1990 DOI: 10.1016/S0040-4039(00)97220-4

General Description

A clear colorless liquid. Flash point 116°F. Melting point 74°F. Less dense than water and insoluble in water. Used as a disinfectant, to make rubber, as a lubricating oil additive, and for many other uses.

Air & Water Reactions

Flammable. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Phenols, such as 6-tert-Butyl-m-cresol, do not behave as organic alcohols, as one might guess from the presence of a hydroxyl (-OH) group in their structure. Instead, they react as weak organic acids. Phenols and cresols are much weaker as acids than common carboxylic acids (phenol has Ka = 1.3 x 10^[-10]). These materials are incompatible with strong reducing substances such as hydrides, nitrides, alkali metals, and sulfides. Flammable gas (H2) is often generated, and the heat of the reaction may ignite the gas. Heat is also generated by the acid-base reaction between phenols and bases. Such heating may initiate polymerization of the organic compound. Phenols are sulfonated very readily (for example, by concentrated sulfuric acid at room temperature). The reactions generate heat. Phenols are also nitrated very rapidly, even by dilute nitric acid.

Health Hazard

Inhalation or contact with material may irritate or burn skin and eyes. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Vapors may cause dizziness or suffocation. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may cause pollution.
