Methyl chloroacetate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties



As solvent.

General Description

A crystalline solid or a solid dissolved in a liquid. Insoluble in water and denser than water. Contact may slightly irritate skin, eyes and mucous membranes. May be slightly toxic by ingestion. Used to make other chemicals.

Air & Water Reactions

Highly flammable. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Methyl chloroacetate is a halogenated ester. Esters react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides.

Health Hazard

Extremely corrosive to the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and upper respiratory tract. Inhalation may be fatal as a result of spasm, inflammation and edema of the larynx and bronchi, chemical pneumonitis, and pulmonary edema. Symptoms of exposure include burning sensation, coughing, wheezing, laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache, nausea, and vomiting.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic fumes of hydrogen chloride

Purification Methods

Shake the ester with saturated aqueous Na2CO3 (three times), aqueous 50% CaCl2 (three times), saturated aqueous NaCl (twice), dry (Na2SO4) and fractionally distil it. Very toxic. [Beilstein 2 IV 480.]
