Description

Epichlorohydrin is a clear colorless liquid with an irritating chloroform-like odor. Epichlorohydrin is an epoxide that is 1,2-epoxypropene in which one of the methyl hydrogens is substituted by chlorine. It is an organochlorine compound and an epoxide. It derives from a 1,2-epoxypropane.
Toxic and moderately toxic. Animal experiments have shown potential carcinogenic effects. Long-term exposure should be avoided. It is an important organic synthesis raw material and intermediate.
