PENTACHLOROETHANE Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid with a camphor-like smell.Pentachloroethane is incompatible and very reactive in contact with sodium potassium (alloy + bromoform), alkalis, metals, and water. On hydrolysis, pentachloroethane produces dichloroacetic acid and the reaction with alkalis and metals produces chloroacetylenes, which becomes spontaneously explosive. Pentachloroethane is a colourless stable liquid with a camphor-like smell and non-flammable. Pentachloroethane is incompatible with strong oxidising agents and reacts violently with alkalis or metals.

General Description

A colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. Insoluble in water and denser than water. Toxic by inhalation and ingestion. May irritate skin and eyes. Used as a solvent.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

A mixture of PENTACHLOROETHANE with potassium may explode after a short delay. Reaction with alkalis or metals will produce a violent reaction. PENTACHLOROETHANE also reacts violently with NaK alloy + bromoform. PENTACHLOROETHANE is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.

Health Hazard

Irritation of skin, lungs, eyes, and mucous membrane; depression of central nervous system; and toxicity similar to tetrachloroethanes.

Safety Profile

Poison by inhalation and intravenous routes. Moderately toxic by ingestion and subcutaneous routes. An irritant. Questionable carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic data. Flammable when exposed to heat or flame. Moderately explosive by spontaneous chemical reaction. To fight fire, use water, CO2, dry chemical. Dehalogenation by reaction with alkalies, metals, etc., wdl produce spontaneously explosive chloroacetylenes. Violent reaction with NaK alloy + bromoform. Mixtures with potassium are very shock-sensitive explosives. When heated to decomposition it emits highly toxic fumes of Cl-. See also CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS, ALIPHATIC.

Purification Methods

Usual impurities include trichloroethylene. It partially decomposes if it is distilled at atmospheric pressure. Drying it with CaO, KOH or sodium is unsatisfactory because of the elimination of the elements of HCl. It can be purified by steam distillation, or by washing with conc H2SO4, water, and then aqueous K2CO3, drying with solid K2CO3 or CaSO4, and fractionally distilling under reduced pressure.
