Trichloroacetyl chloride Usage And Synthesis
colourless liquid. Decomposes in water; soluble in alcohol.
Trichloroacetyl chloride is a clear liquid.
A colorless volatile liquid with a strong odor. Denser than water. Contact severely irritates skin, eyes and mucous membranes. May be very toxic by ingestion and inhalation. May be combustible.
Trichloroacetyl chloride is incompatible with water, with strong oxidizing agents, alcohols, bases (including amines). May react vigorously or explosively if mixed with diisopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts [J. Haz. Mat., 1981, 4, 291].
Highly toxic by ingestion and inhalation; strong irritant to skin and tissues.
Material may burn but does not ignite readily. Poisonous if inhaled or swallowed; skin contact poisonous. Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes.
Used in chemical syntheses.
UN2442 Trichloroacetyl chloride, Hazard class: 8; Labels: 8-Corrosive material, 6.1-Poisonous materials.
Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides, ethers and metal salts. Violent reaction with water, forming hydrochloric acid and trichloroacetic acid.
Do not discharge into drains or sewers. Consult with environmental regulatory agencies for guidance on acceptable disposal practices. Generators of waste containing this contaminant (≥100 kg/mo) must conform with EPA regulations governing storage, transportation, treatment, and waste disposal. Controlled incineration (oxides of nitrogen are removed from the effluent gas by scrubbers and/or thermal devices) Must be disposed properly by following package label directions or by contacting your local or federal environmental control agency, or by contacting your regional EPA office.
