  • Chemical Classes:Other Classes -> Halogenated Monoaromatics
  • Canonical SMILES:C1=CC=C(C=C1)CCl
  • Inhalation Risk:A harmful contamination of the air can be reached rather quickly on evaporation of this substance at 20 °C , on spraying much faster.
  • Effects of Short Term Exposure:The substance is corrosive to the eyes. The vapour is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Inhalation of the vapour or aerosol may cause lung oedema. The substance may cause effects on the central nervous system. This may result in unconsciousness.
  • Effects of Long Term Exposure:The substance may have effects on the liver and kidneys. This may result in tissue lesions. This substance is possibly carcinogenic to humans. Animal tests show that this substance possibly causes toxicity to human reproduction or development.
  • Physical properties Colorless to pale yellowish-brown liquid with a pungent, aromatic, irritating odor. Odor threshold concentration is 47 ppbv (Leonardos et al., 1969). Katz and Talbert (1930) reported an experimental detection odor threshold concentration of 210 μg/m3 (41 ppbv). The solubility of benzyl chloride in water is 0.33 g/L at 4°C, 0.49 g/L at 20°C, and 0.55 g/L at 30°C. It is freely soluble in chloroform, acetone, acetic acid esters, diethyl ether, and ethyl alcohol.
  • Uses Benzyl chloride is used in the manufacture of benzyl Compounds, dyes, artificial resins, tanning agents, phar maceuticals, plasticizers, synthetic tannins, perfumes, lubricants, and quaternary ammonium compounds. It is also an intermediate in the preparation of phenylacetic acid (precursor to phamaceuticals).
