4-Chlorobenzotrichloride Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

p-Chlorobenzotrichloride, an organochloride, is a flammable, water-white liquid.

Uses

Same as o-chlorobenzotrichloride.

General Description

Clear colorless liquid.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Simple aromatic halogenated organic compounds, such as 4-Chlorobenzotrichloride , are very unreactive. Reactivity generally decreases with increased degree of substitution of halogen for hydrogen atoms. Materials in this group may be incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents. Also, they may be incompatible with many amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals, and epoxides.

Health Hazard

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: Corrosive; Lachrymator.

Fire Hazard

Flash point data for 4-Chlorobenzotrichloride are not available, however, 4-Chlorobenzotrichloride is probably combustible.

Safety Profile

Suspected carcinogen. A poison by inhalation. Moderately toxic by ingestion and skin contact. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic vapors of Cl-.

Potential Exposure

Used in agrochemicals manufacture as an intermediate; reaction with HF yields chlorobenzotrifluoride as a major intermediate for several pesticides; for making pharmaceuticals; UV absorbers, and dyestuffs. This chemical is manufactured in high volume (exceeds 1 million pounds per annum) in the United States.

Shipping

UN1760 Corrosive liquids, n.o.s., Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material, Technical Name Required.

Incompatibilities

A halogenated aromatic compound. Hydrolyzes to hydrochloric acid and benzoic acid in all forms of moisture. Incompatible with strong oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from reducing agents, alkaline materials, strong acids, strong bases, amines, nitrides, azo/ diazo compounds, alkali metals, and epoxides.
