Properties and stability

1. Avoid contact with strong oxidants, strong alkali, strong reducing agents and air.

2. Found in flue-cured tobacco leaves.

Storage method

Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The storage temperature should not exceed 10℃. The packaging must be sealed and must not come into contact with air. They should be stored separately from oxidants, reducing agents, alkalis, 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

1. It is formed by the condensation of diethylmethanol and anhydrous oxalic acid or sulfuric acid.
2. The new method is obtained by reacting a-Z, alkenyl crotonal with iron filings and acetic acid.

3. Tobacco: FC, 40.


Used in organic synthesis, mixed with triethylaluminum and used as a two-component igniter in rocket propulsion systems.
