AdvanSix Allylamine (MALA)

AdvanSix Allylamine (MALA) is a colorless liquid characterized by a pungent ammonia-like odor. It possesses excellent solubility in water, ethanol, benzene, and ethyl acetate. While Allylamine remains stable under recommended storage conditions, it is important to note that it is highly flammable. Allylamine finds versatile applications as a solvent and in organic synthesis. It plays a vital role in the synthesis of various products, including rubber, mercurial diuretics, sedatives, and antiseptics. Furthermore, it contributes to the production of ion-exchange resins, underlining its significance in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Storage & Handling

Handling Recommendations
  • Keep containers closed when not in use.
  • Open containers slowly to allow any excess pressure to vent.
  • Keep away from heat, sparks, flame, or other sources of ignition.
  • Protect small containers from physical damage.
  • Use proper electrical grounding and bonding procedures when loading, unloading, and transferring.
  • Use spark-resistant tools.
  • Electrical equipment and circuits in all storage and handling areas must conform to requirements of national electrical code (Articles 500 and 501) for hazardous location.
