Chloroacetic acid 100% (100% MCAA technical, flakes) is a product, in which the DCAA content does not exceed 1500 ppm.

Chloroacetic acid 100% 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, dimethylsulfoxide, and dimethylformamide. It is poorly soluble in hydrocarbons and their halogenated .
