Storage method

1. This product is a first-class flammable liquid. Packed in iron drums. The container should be sealed and stored in a cool and ventilated place. Fireworks are strictly prohibited. It should be isolated from oxidizing agents during storage. In the event of a fire, use carbon dioxide, sand, dry chemical powder or mist water to extinguish the fire.

2. Storage precautions [25] Stored in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The storage temperature should not exceed 29°C. Keep container tightly sealed. They should be stored separately from oxidants, acids, etc., and avoid mixed storage. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities. It is prohibited to use mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to sparks. The storage area should be equipped with emergency release equipment and suitable containment materials.

Synthesis method

There are two main methods for producing isopropylamine in industry:

1. Acetone hydrogenation and amination method. The raw material acetone is fed into a reactor with copper-nickel-clay as a catalyst. Under normal pressure At a temperature of 150-220°C, hydrogen and ammonia are introduced to react, and the reaction product is purified by distillation to obtain monoisopropylamine, and diisopropylamine is also generated. The conversion rate of acetone reaches 98%, and the total yield of mono- and diisopropylamine reaches more than 90%. Raw material consumption quota: acetone 1390kg/t, liquid ammonia 450kg/t.

2. Isopropyl alcohol hydrogenation amination method Isopropyl alcohol reacts with ammonia and hydrogen at 195°C and 1.72MPa through a porous nickel-aluminum catalyst activated by barium hydroxide to generate monoisopropylamine and diisopropylamine. The total reaction conversion rate can reach 86%, and the product yield (based on isopropyl alcohol) reaches 96%, which contains 37% monoisopropylamine, 33% diisopropylamine, 12% isopropyl alcohol, and 18% water.

Refining method: Isopropylamine is used It is produced by reacting isopropane bromide with an alcoholic solution of ammonia, or by reacting acetone with ammonia and hydrogen under the catalysis of nickel-copper-clay. Therefore, it may contain impurities such as acetone, isopropyl bromide, isopropyl alcohol and various other propylamines. It can be refined by distillation. To obtain high-purity isopropylamine, add anhydrous barium oxide and let it sit for several days, then distill it in the presence of sodium, collect the fraction at 31.4°C under 131.961Pa, and distill it again.
