Physicochemical properties of salicylic acid

Physical property

Appearance and properties: white acicular crystal or hairy crystalline powder.buy highest salicylic acid - YuanfarChemicals

Solubility: easily soluble in ethanol, ether and chloroform, slightly soluble in water and dissolved in boiling water.

Melting point: 159 ℃

Boiling point: 211 ℃, sublimation at 76 ℃.

Chemical property

Stable at room temperature. It is decomposed into phenol and carbon dioxide by rapid heating. It has the generality of some acids. This product stimulates the skin and mucous membrane. It can react with the protein in the body tissue, so it has corrosive effect. It can make the cornea proliferate and peel off. Its toxicity is weaker than that of phenol, but taking it in large quantities can cause vomiting, diarrhea, headache, sweating, rash, shortness of breath, acidosis and excitement.  

Its aqueous solution is acidic. It has antipyretic and analgesic effects. Used as food preservative, dye disinfectant, medicine, etc. The oral LD50 of mice was 0.48 ~ 1.65 g / kg, and the minimum lethal dose was 60 mg / kg; The oral LD50 of rats was 1.5 ~ 2.0g/kg; It has moderate irritation and low toxicity through skin and mouth. The adult lethal dose is estimated to be about 5 ~ 15g, and some people think it is 20 ~ 30g. Mild poisoning can occur when the blood concentration is 55 ~ 85mg%, moderate poisoning can occur when the blood concentration is 80 ~ 110mg%, severe poisoning can occur when the blood concentration is 125 ~ 145mg%, and poisoning death can occur when the blood concentration is 160 ~ 180mg%.
