  • Chloroacetic acid is the chemical compound with the formula ClCH2CO2H.
  • Monochloroacetic acid, chlorinated simplest carboxylic acid, has electron-withdrawing atom (alpha-chlorine) on the next carbon to
  • Monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) is a white crystalline hydroscopic solid of density 1.58 (liquid density 1.37) with a pungent odour.
  • Chloroacetic acid is synthesized by the chlorination of acetic acid in the presence of red phosphorus, sulfur, or iodine as a catalyst:
    CH3CO2H + Cl2 -> ClCH2CO2H + HCl .
  • MCAA is manufactured industrially by two main routes, the most important is by chlorination of acetic acid.
  • The manufacturing process of MCA (monochloroacetic acid) involves the reaction of the chlorine, acetic acid, and acetic anhydride in
    the Chlorinators under high temperature (200 to 240 degree F).
  • Global production of Monochloroacetic acid (MCAA or chloroacetic acid) exceeds 600,000te/yr.
  • MCAA is manufactured in Europe, the USA, India, China and Japan.
  • China consumed 400,000te/yr of MCAA, approximately 120,000te of which was used to make pesticides and 30,000te pharmaceuticals.
  • The demand will be stably increased with the rate of 10% in the future several years.
  • The MCA market is growing modestly and chiefly due to the demand of thioglycolic acid.
  • The major industrial use of monochloroacetic acid (MCAA), accounting for 35-45% of its production, is in the manufacture of Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC).
  • MCAA is used to produce arylhydroxyacetic acid, methyl -napthyloxyacetate and benazoline based herbicides, as well as the
    insecticides dimethoate, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and dimethoate.
  • MCAA is used to make surfactants, particularly mild bentine amphoteric surfactants and caffeine, barbituric acid, chloroacetyl chloride.
  • Chloroacetic acid is used as raw material to derive some chemical intermediates such as malonic acid, malononitrile, mercaptoacetic acid and aminoacetic acid.
