Fine white free-flowing crystals or white powder. Odorless.
CHLORENDIC ACID(115-28-6) readily forms salts with a variety of metals .
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
Chlorendic acid is used to make other
chemicals, polyester resins; in fiberglass reinforced resins;
used for anticorrosion equipment and flame retardant applications of fabrics
This chemical will burn when subject to direct flame, but is self-extinguishing when the flame is removed.
If this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any
contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least
15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek
medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the
skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately
with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately.
If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure,
begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if
heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical
facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce
vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit.

Chlorendic acid is used as a flame retardant in polyurethane foams, resins, plasticizers, coatings, epoxy resins, and wool fabrics; in the manufacture of alkyl resins for special paints and inks; in the manufacture of polyester resins with special applications in electrical systems,paneling, engineering plastics, and paint; and in the manufacture of corrosion-resistant tanks, piping, and scrubbers. Chlorendic acid is also used as an extreme-pressure lubricant (NTP 1987, IARC 1990, IPCS 1996, HSDB 2009).
Hexachlorobicyclo[2.?2.1]?hept-?5-?ene-?2,?3-?dicarboxylic Acid is a novel flame retardant (NFR) which has also been observed as a toxic and environmental pollutant. Chlorinated Reactive Flame Retardant IntermediateEnvironmental toxin on US EPA Toxic Release Inventory list (TRI) list.
ChEBI: A bridged organochlorine compound resulting from the Diels-Alder reaction of hexachlorocyclopentadiene with maleic anhydride followed by hydrolysis of the resulting anhydride. A chemical intermediate used in the preparation of fire-retardant polyester resi
s and plasticisers.
Chlorendic acid is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogenbased on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in experimental animals.
