Dichloroacetic acid, sometimes called bichloroacetic acid, is the chemical compound with formula CHCl ₂COOH. It is an acid, an analogue of acetic acid, in which 2 of the 3 hydrogen atoms of the methyl group have been replaced by chlorine atoms. Like the other chloroacetic acids, it has various practical applications. Although preliminary studies found that DCA can slow the growth of certain tumors in animal studies and in vitro studies, as of 2012 insufficient evidence supported the use of DCA for cancer treatment. Both DCA and TCA are used for cosmetic treatments (such as chemical peels and tattoo removal) and as topical medication for the chemoablation of warts, including genital warts. It can kill normal cells as well. 

Dichloroacetic acid is an organochlorine compound comprising acetic acid carrying two chloro substituents at the 2-position. It occurs in nature in seaweed, Asparagopsis taxiformis. It has a role as an astringent and a marine metabolite. It is a monocarboxylic acid and an organochlorine compound.

Dichloroacetic acid is used as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of organic materials, as an ingredient in pharmaceuticals and medicines, as a topical astringent, and as a fungicide.

Dichloroacetic Acid Side Effects

DCA was discovered to be a safe drug with no cardiac, pulmonary, renal or bone marrow toxicity[. The most serious common side effect consists of peripheral neuropathy, which is reversible. Delirium has been reported, and is reversible after discontinuation of DCA.

Dichloroacetic Acid Synthesis 

Dichloroacetic acid was reported to be first synthesized in 1864 by the further chlorination of monochloroacetic acid with chlorine. It can also be obtained by hydrolysis of pentachloroethane with 88–99% sulfuric acid or by oxidation of 1,1-dichloroacetone with nitric acid and air.
