3-Chloro-4-methylaniline Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesbrown solid
  • Chemical PropertiesThe chloromethylanilines are colorless or white crystalline solids or liquids, some have a mild fishy odor.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A monochloroaniline that is p-toluidine in which one of the hydrogens that is meta to the amino group is replaced by a chlorine.
  • General DescriptionBrown solid with a mild odor.
  • Air & Water ReactionsMay be sensitive to prolonged exposure to air and light. Insoluble in water.
  • Reactivity Profile3-Chloro-4-methylaniline may be sensitive to prolonged exposure to air and light. 3-Chloro-4-methylaniline may react with oxidizing agents. 3-Chloro-4-methylaniline is incompatible with acids, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides and chloroformates. 3-Chloro-4-methylaniline is also incompatible with reducing agents.
  • Fire Hazard3-Chloro-4-methylaniline is combustible.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by ingestion, intravenous, and intraperitoneal routes. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl and NOx. See also other chloro toluidme 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.
