3-Chlorotoluene Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

Chemical Properties

o-Chlorotoluene is a flammable, colorless liquid with an aromatic odor.

Uses

Solvent, intermediate.

General Description

Colorless liquid. Specific gravity 1.072. Denser than water, thus sinks in water. Flash point less than 141°F. Vapors irritating and narcotic in high concentrations. Used as solvents and as an intermediate for making other chemicals and dyes.

Air & Water Reactions

Flammable. Slightly soluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

3-Chlorotoluene is generally unreactive. May be incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents. May be incompatible with many amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals, and epoxides.

Hazard

Narcotic in high concentration. Avoid inhalation.

Health Hazard

Inhalation causes upper respiratory irritation. Irritating to skin and eyes. May be absorbed through the skin. Prolonged exposure may result in systemic toxic effects. Harmful if swallowed.

Potential Exposure

o-Chlorotoluene is widely used as a solvent and intermediate in the synthesis of dyes, synthetic rubber; pharmaceuticals; and other organic chemicals. Used as an insecticide, bactericide.

Shipping

UN2238 Chlorotoluenes, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.

Purification Methods

Purify it as for 2-chlorotoluene above. [Beilstein 5 IV 806.]

Incompatibilities

Incompatible with acids, alkalis, oxidizers, reducing materials; water
