Product Description

Chloroacetic Acid

Chloroacetic acid is synthesized by chlorinating of acetic acid in the presence of red phosphorus, sulfur, or iodine as a catalyst:

CH3CO2H + Cl2 ? ClCH2CO2H + HCl

It also forms by the hydrolysis of trichloroethylene using sulfuric acid as a catalyst.

Illustrative of its usefulness in organic chemistry is the O-alkylation of salicylaldehyde with chloroacetic acid, followed by decarboxylation of the resulting ether, produces benzofuran.
