Metals, Organic Compounds
Colorless liquid; [Hawley]
Used as a polymerization catalyst; [HSDB] Organic aluminum compounds are "some of the most important, highest volume, highest value organometallic compounds in production." [Ullmann]
Aluminum alkyl halides release large amounts of HCl when spilled in water; [ERG 2016] Reacts violently with water, liberating extremely flammable gases; Spontaneously flammable in air; A corrosive substance that can cause injury to the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract; Inhalation may result in laryngeal edema and chemical pneumonitis; [MSDSonline] HCl released when spilled in water; [ERG 2016] Organoaluminum compounds are corrosive; Harmful if absorbed through the skin or inhaled; The butyl alkyls and below are pyrophoric; Aluminum alkyls are eye irritants; [HSDB] Organic aluminum compounds can cause irritation or burns, depending upon concentration; [Ullmann] TLV withdrawn for aluminum alkyls because of inadequate toxicological data; [ACGIH] See "Aluminum." See "ORGANOMETALS."
LC50 (rat) = 67 ppm
Not TIH in land-based spills, but TiH substance released when spilled in water; [ERG 2016] The Guide in the Emergency Response Guidebook is for "Aluminum alkyl halides."
