It is miscible in water and sinks in it. It is combustible in nature. It is one of the most important halogenated derivatives of acetic acid. 

Chemical Formula:

  • C2H3ClO2  

Molecular Weight:

  • 94.5 g/mol

Synonyms:

  • Chloroacetic Acid
  • 79-11-8
  • 2-Chloroacetic Acid

Industrial Uses

  • Carboxymethyl Cellulose Or CMC
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Agrochemicals
  • Dyes
  • Cosmetics

Production Processes:

  • Production of MCA via Chlorination; and via Hydrolysis.

In this process, acetic acid is chlorinated with acetic anhydride as a catalyst, which results in the formation of Monochloroacetic Acid with dichloroacetic acid and trichloroacetic acid as impurities. This product is further separated and refined to obtain the desired product.
