4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride Usage And Synthesis
4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride acts as an important intermediate for dyes, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, insecticides and herbicides. It is widely used in various applications including adhesives, pigments, sealant chemicals, paints and coatings as well as being used as an active component of polyurethane finishes. It is also used as an environmental friendly solvent for cleaning or degreasing and dielectric fluid. Because of its high capacity to dissolve inks, it is also used in the printing industry. Finally, it also finds applications in xylene replacement in cleaners, thinners and other aromatic hydrocarbon blends1. Other applications for PCBTF include resins, epoxy resins, diluents, graffiti removers, and various other solvent applications.
Chlorobenzotrifluoride is a colorless, highly flammable liquid.
A benzene derivative; displays mutagenic and toxic activity.
Chemical intermediate for dinitroaniline herbicides, dyes. As dielectric fluid and as solvent.
Clear colorless liquid with an aromatic odor.
Air & Water Reactions
Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.
4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride is sensitive to heat and light. 4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride reacts vigorously with oxidizing materials such as permanganates and dichromates. 4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride is incompatible with strong bases. 4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride is also incompatible with sodium dimethyl sulfonate.
4-Chlorobenzotrifluoride is combustible.
Mildly toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Human mutation data reported. Flammable. Strongly exothermic reaction with sodium dimethylsulfinate. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Fand Cl-. See also CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS, AROMATIC; and FLUORIDES.
This material is used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals; dyes, dielectrics, and insecticides.
UN2234 Chlorobenzotrifluorides, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.
Purify it as for o-chlorobenzotrifluoride above. [Beilstein 5 IV 815.]
Vapors may form explosive mixture with air. Violent reaction with strong oxidizers, such as permanganates and dichromates, chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.; contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides. Mixture with sodium dimethyl 5-sulphonatoisophthalate (3965-55-7) may cause explosion.
In accordance with 40CFR165 recommendations for the disposal of pesticides and pesticide containers. 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.
