It appears as white to pale-yellow, crystalline, or flaked solid with no odor or a characteristic faint aromatic odor. It is insoluble in Water but soluble in Methanol, Toluene, and Ether at ambient conditions. Chemically pure or Laboratory reagents are the two terms often used to describe Lab Grade chemicals. Lab Grade chemicals do not meet any accepted quality or purity requirements such as the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, and the FCC Grade, despite their acceptable purity.
