Product Introduction:

Benzoyl chloride, also known as α-Chlorobenzaldehyde, Benzoic chloride, etc., is a kind of acid chloride.

The pure product is a colorless, transparent, flammable liquid that emits smoke when exposed to air. The industrial product is slightly light yellow and has a strong pungent odor. The steam has a strong stimulating effect on the mucous membrane of the eye, the skin and the respiratory tract, and induces tears by stimulating the mucous membrane of the eye.

Soluble in ether, chloroform, benzene and carbon disulfide. It gradually decomposes in contact with water, ammonia or ethanol to generate benzoic acid, benzamide or ethyl benzoate and hydrogen chloride.

Benzoyl chloride is more stable than aliphatic acid chloride, but because it contains more active chlorine, it has strong chemical activity and is mainly used as a benzoylating agent.

Product Usage:

Benzoyl chloride is mainly used in organic synthesis as a raw material for the preparation of organic peroxides, pesticides, Shihlin dyes, benzotriazole UV absorbers, rubber antioxidants, and medicines.

  • Benzoyl chloride is an important benzoylation and benzylation reagent, which can be used to identify phenols, alcohols, amines, etc. Most of benzoyl chloride is used to produce benzoyl peroxide, followed by important chemical raw materials such as benzophenone, benzyl benzoate, benzyl cellulose and benzamide.
  • It is an important intermediate for the preparation of dyes, fragrances, organic peroxides, pharmaceuticals and resins. It is also used in photography and in the production of artificial tannic acid, and has been used as a pungent gas in chemical warfare.
  • Benzoyl peroxide is used as polymerization initiator for plastic monomers, stimulant for polyester, epoxy and acrylic resin production, self-agglomerating agent for glass fiber materials, cross-linking representative for silicone fluorine rubber, oil refining, flour whitening, fiber Decolorization, etc.
  • Manufacture of initiator dibenzoyl peroxide, tert-butyl peroxybenzoate, pesticide herbicide, etc.
  • In terms of pesticides, the new inducible pesticides are intermediates of isoxathion (Isoxathion, Karphos).
  • Can also be used as a component of bleach and flux.
