Menthol Crystals Menthol Tablets Menthol Bolus Tablets

Menthol is an organic compound made synthetically or obtained from the oils of corn mint, peppermint, or other mints. It is a waxy, crystalline substance, clear or white in color, which is solid at room temperature and melts slightly above. Menthol has local anesthetic and counter-irritant qualities, and it is widely used to relieve minor throat irritation.

General Specifications of Menthol:
Appearance: Colorless, hexagonal crystals
Odor: Characteristic, peppermint, refreshing and sweet odor.
Solubility: Very soluble in ethanol 95%
Identification: Equal weight of camphor and menthol, mixture liquifies
Organic Volatile Impurities by GC: Negligible
Melting Point: 41-44C
Optical Rotation: -45° to -51°
Non-Volatile Residue: < 0.05%
L Menthol: 99.5%


Menthol USP Grade
C10H20O --- 156.27
Cyclohexanol, 5-methyl-2-(1-methylethyl)- [CAS 1490-04-6].

Menthol is an alcohol obtained from diverse mint oils or prepared synthetically.
Menthol may be levorotatory (l-Menthol), from natural or synthetic sources, or racemic (dl-Menthol).

Packaging and storage: Preserve in tight containers, preferably at controlled room temperature.
Labeling: Label it to indicate whether it is levorotatory or racemic.

Identification: When it is triturated with about an equal weight of camphor, of chloral hydrate, or of phenol, the mixture liquefies.
Melting range of l-Menthol: between 41 and 44C.
Congealing range of dl-Menthol
: [NOTE—Perform this test preferably in a room having a temperature below 30C and a relative humidity below 50%.] Place about 10 g of racemic Menthol, previously dried in a desiccator over silica gel for 24 hours, in a dry test tube of from 18- to 20-mm internal diameter, and melt the contents at a temperature of about 40C. Suspend the test tube in water having a temperature of 23 to 25C, and stir the contents of the tube continually with a thermometer, keeping the bulb of the thermometer immersed in the liquid. Racemic Menthol congeals at a temperature between 27 and 28C. Shortly after the temperature has stabilized at the congealing point, add a few mg of dried racemic Menthol to the congealed mass, and continue the stirring: after a few minutes the temperature of the mass quickly rises to 30.5 to 32.0C.
Specific rotation: between 45 and 51 for l-Menthol; between 2 and +2 for dl-Menthol.
Limit of nonvolatile residue: Volatilize 2 g, accurately weighed, in a tared open porcelain dish on a steam bath, and dry the residue at 105 for 1 hour: the residue weighs not more than 1 mg (0.05%).
Chromatographic purity: To pass the test.
Readily oxidizable substances in dl-Menthol: Place 500 mg of dl-Menthol in a clean, dry test tube, add 10 mL of a solution of potassium permanganate, prepared by diluting 3 mL of 0.1 N potassium permanganate with water to 100 mL, and place the test tube in a beaker of water at a temperature between 45 and 50C. Remove the tube from the bath at intervals of 30 seconds, and mix quickly by shaking: the purple color of potassium permanganate is still apparent after 5 minutes.
Organic volatile impurities: meets the requirements.

4 FIRST-AID MEASURES INHALATION

Always seek medical attention after first aid measures are provided.

Move the exposed person to fresh air at once. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
Ingestion: NEVER MAKE AN UNCONSCIOUS PERSON VOMIT OR DRINK FLUIDS! Immediately rinse mouth and provide fresh air. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
Skin Contact: Remove affected person from source of contamination. Remove contaminated clothing and affected body parts with soap and water. Get medical attention if any discomfort continues.
Eye Contact: Promptly wash eyes with plenty of water while lifting the eye lids. Continue to rinse for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention.
Inhalation: If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. Consult a physician.

5 FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES EXTINGUISHING MEDIA

Suitable extinguishing media: Water spray. Foam, carbon dioxide or dry powder.
Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture: Carbon oxides
Advice for firefighters: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes. Fire-extinguishing work is done from the windward and the suitable fire-extinguishing method according to the surrounding situation is used. Uninvolved persons should evacuate to a safe place.

6 ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Personal precautions, protective equipment, and emergency procedures: Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Restrict unprotected personnel from the area. Prevent any contact with hot surfaces. Do not approach facing the wind. Do not touch the spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product enter drains, soil, or water sources.
Methods and materials used for containment Cleanup procedures and Storage: Do not inhale dust, vapors, mist, or gas. Avoid dust formation. Contain spilled material. Cover with an inert, non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite). Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow to evacuate as per law.

7 HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat, or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool, dry, and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like strong oxidizing agents.

8 EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

Exposure limit(s): Contains no substances with occupational exposure limit values. Engineering Measures: Provide adequate general and local exhaust ventilation.
Respiratory Equipment: No specific recommendation made, but protection against nuisance dust must be used when the general level exceeds 10 mg/m3.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
