Palmitoyl chloride Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear liquid
  • UsesPalmitoyl Chloride was used as a polymeric carriers for plasmid DNA (pDNA) delivery to 293T cells.
  • UsesA compound which has been used as a polymeric carrier for plasmid DNA delivery to 293T cells
  • Synthesis Reference(s)The Journal of Organic Chemistry, 54, p. 6101, 1989 DOI: 10.1021/jo00287a023
  • General DescriptionA clear colorless to light yellow liquid with a pungent odor. Freezing point 11-12°C. Irritates skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. May be toxic by ingestion, inhalation and skin absorption.
  • Air & Water ReactionsDecomposes rather slowly in water to form hydrochloric acid and palmitic acid, a fatty acid that is not soluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileHEXADECANOYL CHLORIDE is incompatible with bases (including amines), with strong oxidizing agents, and with alcohols. May react vigorously or explosively if mixed with diisopropyl ether or other ethers in the presence of trace amounts of metal salts [J. Haz. Mat., 1981, 4, 291].
  • Health HazardTOXIC; inhalation, ingestion or skin contact with material may cause severe injury or death. Contact with molten substance may cause severe burns to skin and eyes. Avoid any skin contact. Effects of contact or inhalation may be delayed. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases. Runoff from fire control or dilution water may be corrosive and/or toxic and cause pollution.
  • Fire HazardNon-combustible, substance itself does not burn but may decompose upon heating to produce corrosive and/or toxic fumes. Some are oxidizers and may ignite combustibles (wood, paper, oil, clothing, etc.). Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated.
