About Dichloromethane (Methylene Chloride) 99.5% ACS Reagent Grade
Dichloromethane is one of four chlorocarbons that are produced by chlorinating methane. The others that result during this process are chloromethane, trichloromethane (chloroform) and tetrachloromethane (carbon tetrachloride). Dichloromethane is the least toxic of the carbons produced during this process, but it still poses a health risk as it is a highly volatile liquid. The volatility is one of its key properties allowing it to be easily removed as a solvent.
The ACS Reagent Grade Dichloromethane (Methylene Chloride) is generally acceptable for use in most chemical analytical applications and research laboratories. Lab Alley’s premium quality Dichloromethane Reagent Grade is certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and is highly recommended for getting consistent and repetitive results in research/biochemical labs.
