1,3 -Dimethyl-2 -imidazolidine is an organic liquid with high boiling point and low volatility which solidifies at temperatures below 7.5 °C. It is highly soluble in water and a log Pow close to one indicates that it will be soluble in substances with a wide range of polarity. The substance has no surfactant properties and contains no ionising groups. It is not flammable, explosive or oxidising and presents no particular physical hazards.
