Oxalyl chloride Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid with a pungent odour
  • UsesOxalyl Chloride is used in the preparation of cardiolipin analogs which induce peroxidase activity by Cytochrome C. It is also used in the preparation of fluorescent indicators for cytosolic calcium.
  • Production MethodsOxalyl Chloride, ClCOCOCl, mol wt 126.9, is produced by the reaction of anhydrous oxalic acid and phosphorus pentachloride.
  • ReactionsOxalyl Chloride vigorously reacts with water, alcohols, and amines, and is employed for the synthesis of agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and fine chemicals.
  • Safety ProfilePoison. Violently decomposed by water and alcohol. Severe irritant to skin, eyes, respiratory tract. Explodeson contact with dimethyl sulfoxide. Forms shock-sensitive explosive mixtures with potassium or with K-Na alloy. Will react with water or steam to
