Looking to buy nitroethane


Looking for nitroethane for a synth of aminomethyl propanol, but amateur chemistry gods have to make my life hard living in the US. Anyone have some they have no use for? Thanks!

It's in Canada, so might be expensive shipping to the states... especially being a restricted chemical.

Hope this helps.

Hey I actually U2U’d him about a week ago, but thanks a lot for the help!

Then I don't know... Sorry. Depending on how much you need, it can be made. (But i'm almost sure it's cheaper to buy it somehow, the yields suck.)

Yeah the yields suck and none are even OTC, was hoping for a better solution.

ACRIFIX 1S0117 or 1S0116 (Google it), if you can figure out a way of separating the nitroethane.

Oooh! Nice find. You'll want the 117 stuff (pure solvent, the 116 is 'thickened', probably with dissolved acrylic.) Shouldn't be too hard to separate (fractional distillation, perhaps followed by a water wash should give a good enough product for most purposes.)

Search Klotz Nitro.

Yes, I’m sorry.

Kiara Sky on eBay sells 15ml for $8.45 as a brush saver.

I've never sat down to price out one of the "reasonable" syntheses of nitroethane (sodium ethylsulfate procedure, I guess) but is it any cheaper/more expensive than $8.45/15ml?

Why fractional distillation? Nitroethane has more than 25*c difference in BP to the other compounds except n-butanol. It might be easier to do simple distillation and deal with the tiny butanol impurity if necessary.

No azeotropes to worry about either.

^^^ Referring to 0116 product.

be sure its the good one,
the quick set use nitromethane that has a lower boiling point so it set faster.

I say distill off the nitroethane / butanol azeotrope (bp of 117.8c) and add potassium acetate to lower the volatility of the alcohol? Other than that can’t find much literature on n-butanol forming an azeotrope with either benzene or methanol (both don’t form one with nitroethane) which could have been useful.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but none of the other components of this stuff would seem to impede a nitroaldol reaction. Huh.

I think you’re right, but all but n-butanol are easy to separate, and the alcohol definitely wouldn’t be an issue.

Maybe try e-mailing them? They could probably work out something cheaper than $500. It's not like you live in Borneo -- there's no reason it should be that expensive.

Sample bottle size shipping to Pennsylvania cost me 20$, it isn't cheap unfortunately. But yes 500$ is ridiculous!
