Diisopropylamine, commonly called DIPA as used by analyzers running sodium, hydrazine

Our item D3057-1L, sold only as CS/6X1L(D3057-6L)

For very good reason, it's packaged heavy duty: a very heavy walled borosilicate glass meant to withstand repeated autoclaving is coated with PVC. This package can't be beat when it comes to personnel safety.(read below) A drop could shatter the glass, but the PVC contains it; thereby preventing a serious spill (worst case is generally a very slow leak if the glass should puncture the PVC).

Here's our MSDS for DIPA D3057-6LMSDS.pdf

The Swan Analytical Soditrace, SOLO and AMI sodium analyzers use diisopropylamine (DIPA) to adjust the sample to >11 pH before measuring to eliminate interferences.  Without sufficient buffering sodium ion values will increase. 

This same product fits the Swan hydrazine analyzer(s).

Diisopropylamine [IUPAC name | N-isopropylpropan-2-amine] is a colorless, flammable, volatile liquid [19.4O F flash point] with an odor like that of ammonia. Flash point is the lowest temperature at which a liquid can form an ignitable mixture in air near the surface of the liquid. The lower the flash point, the easier it is to ignite the material.[for example, gasoline has a flash point of approximately -40 degrees C (-40 F)].  A closely related and less common term is fire point, the temperature at which the flame becomes self-sustained so as to continue burning the liquid (at the flash point, the flame does not need to be sustained). The fire point is usually a few degrees above the flash point.

The air odor threshold concentration for DIPA is 1.8 parts per million (ppm) parts of air. Vapor pressure at 20 degrees C (68 degrees F): 60 mm Hg.  It is corrosive as well as flammable. The point being...It is a personnel hazard, as well as a fire hazard.

Diisopropylamine is a severe eye irritant, and exposure to high concentrations is expected to cause pulmonary irritation and edema. Workers exposed to concentrations ranging from 20 to 50 ppm reported haziness of vision.

Another good run-down more from NFPA slant on the  characteristics of diisopropylamine.


 Change-out is the goal here.  Decanting should only be performed in a negative pressure vented hood, explosion proof fitted.
