MCAA 80% Solution UP is a product of the highest purity available, in which the DCAA content does not exceed 90 ppm. It is intended for use primarily in pharmacy in processes where the DCAA content is critical to the quality of the final product.

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