Product Description

Our customers can avail from us Allyl Chloride, which is prepared by the reaction of propylene with chlorine. The main product is 1,2-dichloropropane at lower temperature but at 500 °C, it predominates, formed via a free radical reaction. An estimated 800M kg is produced in this way annually.

CH3CH=CH2 + Cl2 → ClCH2CH=CH2 + HCl


  • Molecular formula: C 3 H 5 Cl
  • Molecular weight: 76.53 g/mole


  • Mainly used in the manufacturing of epichlorohydrin
  • It is also used in the production of allylic ethers, esters, silanes and quaternary ammonium derivatives
  • In the laboratory, allyl chloride is a common alkylating agent, useful in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and pesticides
  • Illustrative of its reactivity include its cyanation to allyl cyanide (CH2=CHCH2CN), reductive coupling to give diallyl, oxidative addition to palladium to give allylpalladium chloride dimer, (C3H5)2Pd2Cl2, and dehydrohalogenation to cyclopropene
  • Chemical synthesis: Allyl chloride is the main reactant for the production of epichlorohydrin (please see that product in our catalog)
  • Also used in the synthesis of allyl and diallyl ethers and esters, cross-linking agents, elastomers, chelating agents, flavors, fragrances, surfactants
  • Pharmaceutical industry: Allyl chloride is used in the chemical synthesis of complex molecules for the pharmaceutical industry
  • Rubbers: Allylic silanes are very compatible with resins and inorganic materials
  • They are used in particular to improve the effectiveness of rubbers
  • A new application is the "green" tires, especially designed to reduce fuel consumption of cars
  • Water treatment chemicals: Allyl chloride is a reactant for the production of poly DADMACs (diallyl dimethyl ammonium chloride polymerized), used for flocculation and clarification of water and wastewater.


  • A harmful contamination of the air can be reached very quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20 C
