Dichloroacetonitrile Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid

General Description

Clear liquid.

Air & Water Reactions

Burns slowly, emitting a thick black smoke, but will not flash . Water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

Dichloroacetonitrile is a halogenated nitrile. Nitriles may polymerize in the presence of metals and some metal compounds. They are incompatible with acids; mixing nitriles with strong oxidizing acids can lead to extremely violent reactions. Nitriles are generally incompatible with other oxidizing agents such as peroxides and epoxides. The combination of bases and nitriles can produce hydrogen cyanide. Nitriles are hydrolyzed in both aqueous acid and base to give carboxylic acids (or salts of carboxylic acids). These reactions generate heat. Peroxides convert nitriles to amides. Nitriles can react vigorously with reducing agents.

Health Hazard

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: When heated to decomposition Dichloroacetonitrile emits toxic fumes of chlorine, cyanides and nitrogen oxides.

Fire Hazard

Dichloroacetonitrile is probably combustible.

Purification Methods

Purify the nitrile by distillation or by gas chromatography. [Beilstein 2 IV 506.] FLAMMABLE.
