2-Chlorotoluene Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties clear liquid

General Description Colorless liquid with an aromatic odor. Denser than water and poorly soluble in water. Hence sinks in water .

Air & Water Reactions Slightly water soluble.

Reactivity Profile 2-Chlorotoluene may be incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents. Also may be incompatible with amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals, and epoxides. Reacts violently with dimethyl sulfoxide .

Health Hazard Inhalation of vapor may cause respiratory irrtation. Prolonged and repeated vapor exposures may produce systemic toxic effects.

Purification Methods Dry 2-chlorotoluene for several days with CaCl2, then distil it from Na using a glass helices-packed column. [Beilstein 5 IV 805.]
