3-Chlorotoluene Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
  • Chemical Propertieso-Chlorotoluene is a flammable, colorless liquid with an aromatic odor.
  • UsesSolvent, intermediate.
  • General DescriptionColorless liquid. Specific gravity 1.072. Denser than water, thus sinks in water. Flash point less than 141°F. Vapors irritating and narcotic in high concentrations. Used as solvents and as an intermediate for making other chemicals and dyes.
  • Air & Water ReactionsFlammable. Slightly soluble in water.
  • Reactivity Profile3-Chlorotoluene is generally unreactive. May be incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents. May be incompatible with many amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals, and epoxides.
  • HazardNarcotic in high concentration. Avoid inhalation.
  • Health HazardInhalation causes upper respiratory irritation. Irritating to skin and eyes. May be absorbed through the skin. Prolonged exposure may result in systemic toxic effects. Harmful if swallowed.
  • Potential Exposureo-Chlorotoluene is widely used as a solvent and intermediate in the synthesis of dyes, synthetic rubber; pharmaceuticals; and other organic chemicals. Used as an insecticide, bactericide.
  • ShippingUN2238 Chlorotoluenes, Hazard Class: 3; Labels: 3-Flammable liquid.
  • Purification MethodsPurify it as for 2-chlorotoluene above. [Beilstein 5 IV 806.]
  • IncompatibilitiesIncompatible with acids, alkalis, oxidizers, reducing materials; water
  • Waste DisposalIn 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.
