Properties and stability

1. Avoid contact with oxidants, acids, and alkalis. It is flammable and can form explosive mixtures with air.

2. Chemical properties: Under the action of acid, alkali or certain metal salts, the substance may polymerize when heated to 200°C.

3. For its toxicity and protection, please refer to ethylene oxide.

4. Exist in tobacco leaves and smoke.

Storage method

Stored in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. Protect from direct sunlight. Keep container sealed and strictly prohibited from contact with air. They should be stored separately from oxidants, acids, and alkalis, and avoid mixed storage. Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire equipment. The storage area should be equipped with emergency release equipment and suitable containment materials.

Stored in a cool, dry, ventilated warehouse, away from fire and heat sources, moisture-proof, sun-proof, and sealed. Store and transport according to general chemical regulations.

Packed in 200kg galvanized iron drum

Synthesis method

1. Mix 42g peroxybenzoic acid, 30g styrene and 400ml chloroform, and keep at 0℃ for 24h. Take a sample to check and there should be a slight excess of peroxybenzoic acid. Wash the reaction product with excess 10% sodium hydroxide solution to remove benzoic acid. Then wash with water to remove alkali, dry over anhydrous sodium sulfate, collect the 188-192°C fraction by distillation, and obtain 24-26g of styrene oxide.

2. Epoxyphenylene oxide is obtained from styrene, sodium bromide, sulfuric acid and liquid caustic soda through halogenation reaction, saponification reaction and distillation.


Used as pharmaceutical and spice intermediates. It is used as an intermediate in the production of benzene glycol and its derivatives, and also as a diluent in the epoxy resin industry.
