1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical PropertiesColorless to light yellow liqui
  • 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:
  • UsesA labelled chloropropanol which shows toxic effects.
  • UsesA chloropropanol which shows toxic effects.
  • General DescriptionColorless to yellow slightly viscous liquid with an ethereal odor.
  • Air & Water ReactionsWater soluble.
  • Reactivity ProfileSensitive to heat. Incompatible with oxidizers. Also incompatible with strong acids, strong reducing agents, acid chlorides and acid anhydrides.
  • Fire Hazard1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol is combustible.
  • Safety ProfileSuspected carcinogen. Poison by ingestion and inhalation. Moderately toxic by skin contact. Human mutation data reported. A skin irritant. Action may be similar to that of carbon tetrachloride, but more irritating to mucous membranes. Flammable when exposed to heat, flame, or oxidizers. To fight fire, use alcohol foam, dry chemical, fog, mist, or spray. Dangerous; when heated to decomposition it emits highly toxic fumes of Cl and phosgene.
  • 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.
  • ShippingUN2750 1,3-Dichloropropanol-2, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials
  • IncompatibilitiesIncompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires orexplosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong acids, acid anhydrides, strong bases
