AdvanSix Isopropylamine (ΜΙΡΑ)

AdvanSix Isopropylamine (ΜΙΡΑ) is a colorless, flammable, volatile liquid with an ammonia-like odor. It exhibits low solubility in water and maintains stability when stored under recommended conditions. MIPA serves as a fundamental building block in the production of various herbicides and pesticides, including atrazine, bentazon, glyphosate, imazapyr, ametryne, desmetryn, prometryn, pramitol, dipropetryn, propazine, fenamiphos, and iprodione. Moreover, MIPA functions as a regulating agent in the plastics industry and plays a crucial role as an intermediate in the organic synthesis of coating materials, plastics, pesticides, rubber chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and various other applications. Additionally, it finds utility as an additive within the petroleum industry.

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.
