Isopropylamine, also called 2-aminopropane, 2-propanamine,
monoisopropylamine, and MIPA, is an organic compound, an amine.
- It is a
base, as typical for amines.
Isopropylamine is a colorless, flammable, low-boiling point liquid.
isopropylamine extremely flammable with flash point at -37 °C.
identification of the genes encoding the enzymes of the isopropylamine
degradation pathway, that was isolated mini- Tn5 transposon insertion
mutants of Pseudomonas.
Isopropylamine can be obtained by aminating isopropyl alcohol with
ammonia in presence of a nickel/copper or similar catalyst.
isopropylamine uses are as the salt component to glyphosate acid for
weed prevention key compenent to Atrazine, a regulating agent for
plastics, intermediate in organic synthesis of coating materials,
plastics, pesticides, rubber chemicals, pharmaceuticals and others, and
as an additive in petroleum industry.
alcohol it is used in some binary chemical weapons, as a mixture called
OPA which in turn mixed with methylphosphonyl difluoride
Isopropylamine is used for the synthesis of herbicides .
Isopropylamine is used in the manufacture of other chemicals at some of
its producing plants.
- Total U.S.
production capacity for isopropylamine was estimated to be 32.5 thousand
short tons, of which 32.2 thousand short tons were available for
shipment to off-site consumers.
- The plant in
Louisiana is estimated to have accounted for over 60 percent of the
total U.S. production.
percent of isopropylamine tonnage went to countries in Latin America or
Asia, and most of this was probably shipped directly from plants
situated in Louisiana and Alabama.
