Amyl Nitrate (C5H11NO3) is a a clear colorless liquid with an ether-like odor, flash point 11°f, about the same density as water and insoluble in water, vapors heavier than air, produces toxic oxides of nitrogen during combustion, used as an additive for diesel fuels. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Amyl Nitrate. Please review our fire rated products: Fire-rated, FIRELoc, SUPERLoc
