Diisopropanolamine

CAS#: 110-97-4

Synonyms: DIPA; 1,1′-iminobis-2-propenol; Dipropyl-2,2′-Dihydroxyamine; Bis(2-hydroxypropyl) Amine

Uses: Emulsifying agents for polishes, textile specialties, leather compounds, insecticides, cutting oils and water paints.

Hazard:  Vapor concentrations too low to irritate unless exposure is prolonged.  Liquid will burn eyes and skin.  DIISOPROPANOLAMINE is an aminoalcohol. Amines are chemical bases.  They neutralize acids to form salts plus water.  These acid-base reactions are exothermic.  The amount of heat that is evolved per mole of amine in a neutralization is largely independent of the strength of the amine as a base.  Amines may be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides.  Flammable gaseous hydrogen is generated by amines in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.  This compound may be sensitive to light and air.  This compound will react with oxidizing materials.
