Properties and stability

Storage method


Synthesis method

1. Similar to the production method of benzotriazole, it can be obtained by diazotization and cyclization of toluenediamine. An older method is obtained by reacting m-toluidine diazonium salt with p-toluenesulfonamide

2.Diazotize toluenediamine, cyclize it in acetic acid, and then distill it under reduced pressure to obtain crude methylbenzotriazole, which is then recrystallized, refined, and dried. Pure methylbenzotriazole can be obtained. There is also a method to produce relatively pure methylbenzotriazole without distillation using methyl o-phenylenediamine and ethylhexyl nitrite as raw materials and ethylhexanol as the solvent.


As a corrosion inhibitor for copper and copper alloys, this product is similar to benzotriazole (BTA). Actual products also include 4-methylbenzotriazole ([29878-31-7]) or both. mixture, referred to as TTA. Benzotriazole corrosion inhibitors can form insoluble stable complexes with cuprous ions, which are adsorbed on the metal surface to form a stable and inert protective film with a thickness of only 5×10-7cm, but in various It is very stable in this medium, thus protecting the copper alloy. BTA’s corrosion inhibition effect is limited to within the pH range of 5.5-10, but in low pH media, TTA’s corrosion inhibition effect is stronger than BTA. Other triazole compounds, such as triazole and naphthotriazole, also have corrosion inhibition effects on copper and copper alloys, but not as well as BTA and TTA. Methylbenzotriazole is also used in organic synthesis.

Methylbenzotriazole has a corrosion inhibition effect on copper and copper alloys. It can be combined with other organic corrosion inhibitors or alone Add. The usage concentration of methylbenzotriazole is 2 to 10mg/L.
