Safety Information
3-Chloro-2-methylaniline Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear yellow to red or red-brown liquid
  • Chemical PropertiesThe chloromethylanilines are colorless or white crystalline solids or liquids, some have a mild fishy odor.
  • UsesIntermediate.
  • HazardToxic by ingestion or inhalation.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by ingestion. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl and NOx. See also other chloro toluidine entries.
  • Potential ExposureMost of the isomers are used in dyestuff manufacture. The 3-chloro-para isomer is used to kill birds. It is marketed as pelleted bait for control of bird populations.
