Description

1-Hexanol is an organic alcohol with a six-carbon chain and a condensed structural formula of CH3(CH2)5OH. This colorless liquid is slightly soluble in water, but miscible with diethyl ether and ethanol. Two additional straight chain isomers of 1-hexanol, 2-hexanol and 3-hexanol, exist, both of which differing by the location of the hydroxyl group. Many isomeric alcohols have the formula C6H13OH. It is used in the perfume industry.

5.Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Use carbon dioxide, dry chemical or "alcohol" foam extinguisher. Water is ineffective to fire fighting, but is effective to keep fire-exposed containers cool.

5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Excerpt from ERG Guide 129 [Flammable Liquids (Water-Miscible / Noxious)]: HIGHLY FLAMMABLE: Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks or flames. Vapors may form explosive mixtures with air. Vapors may travel to source of ignition and flash back. Most vapors are heavier than air. They will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks). Vapor explosion hazard indoors, outdoors or in sewers. Those substances designated with a (P) may polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Runoff to sewer may create fire or explosion hazard. Containers may explode when heated. Many liquids are lighter than water. (ERG, 2016)

5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

6.Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust. For personal protection see section 8.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in covered containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Absorb on paper. Evaporate on a glass or iron dish in hood. Burn the paper.

7.Handling and storage

7.1 Precautions for safe handling

Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Avoid exposure - obtain special instructions before use.Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. For precautions see section 2.2.

10.1 Reactivity

no data available

10.2 Chemical stability

Stable under recommended storage conditions.

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

Flammable liquid when exposed to heat, sparks or flame.HEXANOL is an alcohol. Flammable and/or toxic gases are generated by the combination of alcohols with alkali metals, nitrides, and strong reducing agents. They react with oxoacids and carboxylic acids to form esters plus water. Oxidizing agents convert them to aldehydes or ketones. Alcohols exhibit both weak acid and weak base behavior. They may initiate the polymerization of isocyanates and epoxides.

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50 Pimephales promelas (Fathead minnow, weight 0.12 g) 97.5 mg/L 96 hr flow-through bioassay, water hardness 45.5 mg/L CaCO3, temp: 25 +/- 1°C, pH 7.5, dissolved oxygen >60% of saturation.
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: LC50 Daphnia magna (Water flea) 240 mg/L/24 hr; static /formulated product
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: 5-Day theoretical BODs of 28%(1), 53% (initial concn of 100 ppm)(2) and 83.6% (initial concn of 2,000 ppm)(3) were observed for 1-hexanol in aerobic screening tests using a sewage inocula. An aerobic biodegradation rate constant of 7.99X10-2 1/hr(4), which corresponds to a half-life of 0.36 days(SRC), was determined in an aerobic screening test at pH 7 and 25°C using an activated sludge inocula. In a similar screening test, the rate constant was measured to be 1.7X10-2 1/hr(5), which corresponds to a biodegradation half-life of 1.7 days(SRC).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 21 was calculated for 1-hexanol(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.03(1) and regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

A Koc of 10.2 was determined for 1-hexanol on a Hagerstown silt loam soil(1). According to a suggested classification scheme(2), this Koc value suggests that 1-hexanol is expected to have very high mobility in soil.

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.
