Monochloroacetic Acid (MCA), also known as Chloroacetic Acid, is a Carboxylic Acid that appears as a colorless crystalline material at room temperature. It is highly soluble in water and many other organic compounds and is a chlorine derivative of Acetic Acid. Lab Alley’s Monochloroacetic Acid (Chloroacetic Acid)80% contains 80% contents of Monochloroacetic Acid in its solution with water. It is primarily used in the production of carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), which consumes up to 30% of the Monochloroacetic Acid produced globally. This compound plays an important role in the production of Polyvinyl Chloride as a stabilizer and is also used as an intermediate in the synthesis of indigo dyes.
Chloroacetic acid, industrially known as monochloroacetic acid, is the organochlorine compound with the formula ClCH₂CO₂H. This carboxylic acid is a useful building-block in organic synthesis.
