Chloroacetyl chloride, also known as acetyl dichloride, is an important organic chemical intermediate with the molecular formula C2H2Cl2O.
Chloroacetyl chloride is a colorless or slightly yellow liquid with a strong pungent odor, soluble in acetone and miscible in ether.
Chloroacetyl chloride is an active acylating agent and an important organic synthesis intermediate with high reactivity, and has a wide range of uses in the fields of pesticides and medicine.
1.Mainly used as raw materials for medicine and pesticides, especially for the production of herbicides such as butachlor and alachlor
2.Used to prepare amino acids and other organic compounds
3.Used in the production of pesticide dimethoate, fluoroacetamide, medicine, solvent, refrigerant, fire extinguishing agent, dye aid, lubricant additive, etc.
4.Chloroacetyl chloride is a crucial intermediate of chemicals, which can create insecticides dimethoate, omethoate, fungicide imazalil, and so on, and also is additionally a crucial pharmaceutical intermediate. 5.Chloroacetyl chloride can be used to synthesize chlordiazepoxide, diazepam, nitroazepam, lidocaine, praziquantel, mesocaine, ethmothiazide, pipacampzepine, fluconazole, econazole, etc. Chloroacetyl chloride is widely used. There are three major series of more than 40 varieties of herbicides that need to consume chloroacetyl chloride.
Chloroacetyl chloride is also used as an acylating agent with excellent performance in the fields of pesticides, medicines, dyes, and various auxiliaries.
In addition, Chloroacetyl chloride can also be used as solvent, extractant, refrigerant, fire extinguishing agent, lubricating oil additive, etc. It is one of the fastest growing organic synthesis intermediates in recent years, and has attracted much attention.
