Chemical compounds when stored for a prolonged period and later when exposed to air and light undergo slow oxidation and lead to the formation of Peroxide, which can be visualized in the form of Crystals. The Peroxide thus, formed get detonated on combining with other compounds or when disturbed due to fiction or heat resulting in an explosion. This is because of the Chemicals or Chemical compounds having oxidation and reduction center within the same molecule. Thus, such chemical compounds are instable and undergo auto-decomposition even on exposure to Sunlight. The Presence of peroxides can be detected by using Peroxide test strips. The change in the colour of the strips indicates the presence of Peroxide.

peroxide removal from tetrahydrofuran

Peroxide Removal From Tetrahydrofuran

Chemical compounds when stored for a prolonged period and later when exposed to air and light undergo slow oxidation and lead to the formation of Peroxide, which can be visualized in the form of Crystals.

The Peroxide thus, formed get detonated on combining with other compounds or when disturbed due to fiction or heat resulting in an explosion. This is because of the Chemicals or Chemical compounds having oxidation and reduction center within the same molecule.

Thus, such chemical compounds are instable and undergo auto-decomposition even on exposure to Sunlight. The Presence of peroxides can be detected by using Peroxide test strips. The change in the colour of the strips indicates the presence of Peroxide

thf tetra hydro furan peroxide test
THF(Tetra Hydro Furan) Peroxide Test:
  • Presence of Peroxide indicates the formation of Tetrahydrofuran peroxide formation in the solvent, which can be established by performing THF peroxide Test which gives the concentration of peroxide level in THF solvent. In this test Peroxide test strip is placed in the solvent for 1 second, and then removed.
  • If the strip turns deep blue, green or brown it indicates high peroxide levels in the solvent. The gradations on the color scale 0,5,60,250 and 500ppm indicates the concentration of the peroxide level in THF.
  • Therefore, proper handling of THF{Tetra hydro Furan)Mfg is necessary as it stimulates the rate of peroxide formation within a short time. By following the guidelines by EH&S, which are given below not only slows down the rate of peroxide formation but also prevents the peroxide contamination.

Best Guidelines for removal of peroxide from THF
  • Identification: Based on peroxide formation, Identify the Chemical, which are classified into
  • Class A: Severe Peroxide Hazard, which need to be disposed off within 3 months if opened.
  • Class B: Concentration Hazard, need to be disposed off within 6 months if opened.
  • Class C: Shock and Heat Sensitive, need to be disposed off within 6 months if opened.
  • Class D: Potential Peroxide forming Chemicals need to be disposed off only if peroxide crystals are Present.
  • Therefore, THF (Tetra Hydro Furan)Mfg is considered as a Class C, Chemical as it is Shock and Heat Sensitive.

Best Guidelines for removal of peroxide from THF
  • Handling: Handle the peroxide forming chemicals, such as THF (Tetra Hydro Furan)Mfg only when labeled with Date received and Date opened .
  • Storage: Do not store, Peroxide forming Chemicals such as THF (Tetra Hydro Furan)Mfg in direct sunlight as it accelerates peroxide Formation. Store in a tightly closed, air-impermeable, light resistant containers.
  • Disposal: Peroxide forming Chemicals, such as THF (Tetra Hydro Furan)Mfg must be disposed off, even if unopened within a time frame of 1year.
procedures for the removal of peroxides in thf
Procedures for the Removal of Peroxides in THF
  • Removal of peroxides is performed by various methods, in which absorption by Activated Alumina is considered as an efficient process. Removal of Peroxides is possible only if the concentration of peroxide, in parts per million is low, such as-
  • If the concentration of Peroxide level is less than 30ppm, it is considered has Hazardous. Thus formed peroxide is removed either by Distillation Process or by Evaporation process or by Chromatography process.
  • But if the concentration of Peroxide level is greater than 30ppm, it is considered has deadly Hazardous and need to be disposed off carefully using a suitable procedure.
distillation distillation process is employed

Distillation:

Distillation process is employed for the THF(Tetrahydrfuran)mfg containing only 0ppm of Peroxide. In this process the THF fraction of vapour steam is absorbed by the Activated Alumina Balls after which a multi-stage distillation is run which gives a peroxide free THF.Since, Distillation eliminates the inhibitor if present , enhancing peroxide formation, it is a less often used procedure.

  • Evaporation :

Evaporation process requires a significant amount of heat, which is why employed for removal of low level of Peroxides. Since this evaporation process is performed in a rotary evaporator containing round bottomed flask, only low level peroxides which possess less hazard are said to be subjected to Evaporation. Hence it is considered as the safe procedure only for low Volumes of THF(Tetrahydrfuran)Mfg.

uses of activated alumina
Uses Of Activated Alumina:
  • Commercially available techniques for water purification such as Ultra filtration, Membrane separation, Reverse Osmosis , Adsorption and many more rely on the sorbent - Activated Alumina.
  • Activated Alumina is also used for Hydrogen Purification, Feedstock drying, Solvent Purification.
  • Drying CO2 in Breweries, inert gas drying, Removal of H2S from natural gas , Polymer Purification is also performed by Activated Alumina.
  • LPG sweetening, Propane Sweetening, LNG sweetening is also achieved through Activated Alumina.
  • TBC removal from Styrene, Butadiene during Polymerization is also carried on by Activated Aumina.
