Isopropylbenzyl chloride, also known as isopropylbenzyl chloride, is a white crystalline powder with a molecular formula of C10H11Cl and a molecular weight of 162.63. It is slightly soluble in water, ethanol, benzene and other organic solvents. Isopropylbenzyl chloride is an important intermediate in the chemical industry, widely used in the synthesis of fungicides, pesticides, medicines and other products.
Isopropylbenzyl chloride is produced in the form of white or pale yellow crystalline powder. Its melting point is between 18-20℃, boiling point is between 176-178℃, flash point is greater than 100℃, relative density is between 1.05-1.07, refractive index is between 1.543-1.545. Isopropylbenzyl chloride is prepared by chlorination of isopropylbenzene under anhydrous conditions, and then recrystallized from ethanol or ether.
Isopropylbenzyl chloride is widely used in the synthesis of fungicides, pesticides, medicines and other chemical products. It is an important intermediate for the synthesis of the fungicide prochloraz and the herbicide clomazone. It is also used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, and in the manufacture of dyes, resins, plastics and other products.
Isopropylbenzyl chloride is a flammable and hazardous substance, so it should be stored in a cool, dry and well-ventilated area. It should be kept away from heat, sparks and open flame, and should not be mixed with oxidants or other combustible materials. In the process of operation, appropriate protective measures such as wearing masks and protective clothing should be taken.
