Chemical formula: (CH2) 6N4
hexamethylenetetramine, aminoform methenamine, hexamin, urizol, methenamin.
Has the appearance of crystal powder of white color received at condensation of formaldehyde with ammonia.
In the industry urotropin is received evaporation in vacuum of mix of formaldehyde and ammonia.
Technical the MK brands receive urotropin from ST brand urotropin by crushing to particles of the necessary size.
Let's dissolve in water, forms monohydrate, it is steady at temperatures below 14 °C. soluble in chloroform, methanol, ethanol. Let's badly dissolve in benzene, air, four-chloride carbon.
At nitration of urotropin smokes nitric acid in the presence of nitrate of ammonium and acetic anhydride hexogen is formed.
Urotropin only in dry warehouse remains.
During the work with urotropin it is important to observe safety measures. Urotropin technical is the combustible substance belonging to the 3rd class of danger on extent of impact on a human body. Urotropin dust is flammable too.
During the work with urotropin, obkhodimo to use breath means of protection, special clothes, footwear and gloves.
Urotropin technical is used in production of plastic, rubber and a varnish film, in the medical and food industry, used in analytical chemistry for the purpose of mikrokristalloskopichesky ions, for preparation of buffer solutions. Also urotropin is actively used in pyrotechnics.
