Chloroacetic acid 80% H-P (80% MCAA H-P) is a high purity product characterised by DCAA levels suitable for most processes where both colour (colourless, clear) and low levels of pollution (DCAA <500ppm) are critical. Chloroacetic acid 80% H-P 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 derivatives.
