MCAA Flakes HP is a high purity product characterised by DCAA levels suitable for most applications where properties such as colour (colourless, clear) and purity (DCAA < 500ppm) are essential.

Monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) is highly reactive and is used as a raw material for many important organic compounds. It has a pungent odour, is readily soluble in water, ethanol, methanol, acetone, benzene, chloroform, DMSO and DMF. It is poorly soluble in hydrocarbons and their halogenated derivatives.
