Benzyl Chloride

Benzyl chloride is used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of certain dyes and pharmaceutical products and as a photographic developer. It is used as a general solvent for inks, paints, lacquers & epoxy Resin, used in the pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, soap, perfume, Flavoring & Fragrance agent. The acute (short-term) effects of α-Chlorotoluene from inhalation exposure in humans consist of severe irritation of the upper respiratory tract, skin, eyes, and mucous membranes, and lung damage along with pulmonary edema (fluid in lungs).

Benzyl is widely appreciated throughout the India due to salient attributes. Exposure to high concentrations also causes effects on the central nervous system (CNS). It is used as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of certain dyes and pharmaceutical products and as a photographic developer. Our provided speciality chemicals are well formulated by making use of finest grade compounds that assist in retaining its stability.The chemical is hydrolyzed to benzyl alcohol in a temperature dependent manner in aquatic environment and benzyl alcohol is readily biodegradable. The chemical has high toxicity to aquatic organisms.

Benzyl chloride is an effective electrophile used in organic chemistry for introducing benzyl groups. Benzyl chloride can be used for the benzyl protection of amines and alcohols, however this is more commonly performed with benzyl an industrial intermediate chemical used in the production of a variety of materials.  The primary purpose of benzyl chloride is to add benzyl functionality to different molecules to change their chemical properties.
