Chloromethane Production Cost Reports


Chloromethane production cost report provides a comprehensive analysis and know-how for setting up a Chloromethane production plant. The study covers all the requisite aspects that one needs to know for the production of Chloromethane. This includes manufacturing processes, raw material requirements, utility requirements, infrastructure requirements, machinery and technology requirements, manpower requirements, packaging requirements, transportation requirements, etc.

Chloromethane Production Cost Report

Chloromethane (CH3Cl), also known as methyl chloride, is a one-carbon compound which is methane, where one of the hydrogens is replaced by a chloro group. It functions like a refrigerant, a mutagen and a marine metabolite and is a member of methyl halides and chloromethanes. Chloromethane is found naturally but can also be artificially made. It is released when wood, grass, charcoal and coal are burned or when wood rots. It is mainly made by reacting methanol with hydrogen chloride, but it can also be prepared via methane chlorination.

Chloromethane is a clear and colourless and toxic gas with a faint and sweet smell which is only noticed at levels that might be toxic. It is heavier than air and may settle closer to the ground. It is very combustible and catches fire easily. It looks like a colourless gas with a molar mass of 50.49 g/mol. It has a boiling point of −24 °C (−11.2 °F). Its net charge is 0. It has a water solubility of 5.3 g/L. It's shipped as a liquefied gas under its own pressure.

Chloromethane is used as a methylating agent to link -CH3 groups to oxygen (as in methylcellulose) and nitrogen (as in quaternary ammonium salts) and as a solvent for the low-temperature butyl rubber preparation. It also facilitates the production of dichloromethane (methylene chloride). Previously it had a primary application as a refrigerant, but it was discontinued after less toxic substances were used.

In industrial uses, it finds application as a reagent in chemical production, a propellant in foam production, an extractant for oils and resins, and a solvent in rubber manufacture and petroleum refining. It is used as a local anaesthetic, in silicone polymer production as a chemical intermediate, in drug production, as a solvent in butyl rubber and petroleum refining, as an extractant for oils and resins, as a methylating and chlorinating agent in organic chemistry and a herbicide.
