2-Nitrochlorobenzene Usage And Synthesis
Chemical Propertiesyellow solid with a characteristic odour
UsesIntermediate, especially for dyes.
General DescriptionYellow crystals with an aromatic odor. Sinks in water.
Air & Water Reactions2-Nitrochlorobenzene may be sensitive to prolonged exposure to air and light. Insoluble in water.
Reactivity ProfileO-NITROCHLOROBENZENE is incompatible with strong bases and strong oxidizing agents. 2-Nitrochlorobenzene will react with ammonia.
HazardToxic by inhalation and ingestion. Combustible. Questionable carcinogen.
Health HazardINHALATION: Headache, languour, anemia. Irritation of nose and throat, cyanosis, shallow respiration, convulsions, and coma. EYES: Irritation. SKIN: Irritation. INGESTION: Forms methemoglobin giving rise to cyanosis and blood changes.
Safety ProfileSuspected carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic and neoplastigenic data. Poison by ingestion, skin contact, and probably inhalation. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. To fight fire, use water, foam. Potentially explosive reaction with ammonia at 160℃/30 bar. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Cl-, NOx, and phosgene. See also other chloronitrobenzene entries and NITRO COMPOUNDS of AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS.
Purification MethodsCrystallise it from EtOH, MeOH or pentane (charcoal). [Beilstein 5 IV 721.]
