Pyrolysis of AIBN without a trap for the formed 2-cyanopropyl radicals results in the formation of tetramethylsuccinonitrilewhich is highly toxic. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.


Use adequate general or local explosion-proof ventilation to keep airborne levels to acceptable levels. May cause central nervous system depression, characterized by excitement, followed by headache, dizziness, drowsiness, and nausea.

May cause mzds irritation with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. May cause respiratory tract irritation.

Acetone possible explosive decomposition ; Heptane possible explosion with the mssd of heat Hazardous Decomposition Products: Empty containers must be decontaminated before returning for recycling.


For instance, a mixture of styrene and maleic anhydride in toluene will react if heated, forming the copolymer upon addition of AIBN. Above a given “control temperature” they decompose violently and catch fire. Advanced stages may cause collapse, unconsciousness, coma and possible death due to respiratory failure. AIBN is safer to use than benzoyl peroxide another radical initiator because the risk of explosion is far less.

If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Harmful aibb inhalation and if swallowed. Personal Protective Equipment Eyes: AIBN is produced from acetone cyanohydrin and hydrazinethen followed by oxidation: Potential Health Effects Eye: May cause liver and kidney damage. Risk of explosion by shock, friction, fire or other sources of ignition. A respirator dust mask, protective gloves and safety glasses are recommended.


Get medical aid if irritation develops or persists. Wash thoroughly after handling.

This white powder is soluble in alcohols and common organic solvents but is insoluble in water. Azo compounds Polymer chemistry Reagents for organic chemistry Radical initiators. Use spark-proof tools and explosion proof equipment.


Wear appropriate protective clothing to prevent skin exposure. Material is sensitive to temperature rises. For small fires, use dry chemical, carbon dioxide, water spray or regular foam. May be fatal if swallowed. Water-soluble azo initiators are also available. Repeated exposure may cause liver damage.
