Chloroacetic Acid 80% U-P (80% MCAA U-P) 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. 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 easily soluble in water, ethanol, methanol, acetone, benzene, chloroform, dimethylsulfoxide, and dimethylformamide. It is poorly soluble in hydrocarbons and their halogenated derivatives.
