2,3-DICHLORO-1-PROPANOL Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesCLEAR COLORLESS LIQUID
  • Chemical PropertiesThere are 4 isomers of dichloropropanols 1,3- dichloro-2-propanol (96-23-1) and “dichloropropanols” (26545-73-3) are citations in environmental regulations: C3H6OCl2 is a colorless viscous liquid with a chloroformlike odor. Slightly soluble in water. 1,3-Dichloro-2- propanol:
  • UsesAn isomer of dichloropropanol; shows metabolite toxicity.
  • General DescriptionViscous colorless to amber liquid with an ethereal odor.
  • Air & Water ReactionsMay be sensitive to prolonged exposure to air. Slightly soluble in water.
  • Reactivity Profile2,3-DICHLORO-1-PROPANOL is incompatible with oxidizers, oxygen and peroxides.
  • Fire Hazard2,3-DICHLORO-1-PROPANOL is combustible.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by ingestion and skin contact. Moderately toxic by inhalation. A skin and severe eye irritant. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl-. See also CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS, AROMATIC.
  • Potential ExposureIt is used as a solvent for hard resins and nitrocellulose; in the manufacture of photographic chemicals and lacquer; as a cement for celluloid; and as a binder of water colors. It occurs in effluents from glycerol and halohydrin production plants.
