Tributylamine (C12H27N) is a a pale yellow liquid with an ammonia-like odor. The chemical is less dense than water and very irritating to skin, mucous membranes, and eyes. May be toxic by skin absorption and/or low toxicity. Used as an inhibitor in hydraulic fluids. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Tributylamine.

Tributylamine Storing Details

  • Flammable Details: Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosio
  • Storage Details: Keep separated from incompatible substances, such as oxidizers. Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Store in compliant, approved flammables storage buildings, separated from oxidizers and sources of ignition.
  • Compatible Details: Tributylamine can react with oxidizing materials . Neutralizes acids in exothermic reactions to form salts plus water. May be incompatible with isocyanates, halogenated organics, peroxides, phenols (acidic), epoxides, anhydrides, and acid halides. Flammable gaseous hydrogen may be generated in combination with strong reducing agents, such as hydrides.
  • Description: Tributylamine (TBA) is an organic compound with the molecular formula C12H27N. It is a colorless to yellow, hygroscopic liquid with an amine-like odor which is very poorly soluble in water.
  • Classification: CLASS 8
  • Brand Name: n/a
