Air & Water Reactions
Slightly soluble in water and denser than water.
Dry 2-chloropyridine with NaOH for several days, then distil it from CaO under reduced pressure. [Beilstein 20/5 V 402.]
A colorless oily liquid. Toxic by ingestion and/or skin absorption. Used to make other chemicals.
Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosion hazards. Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. Substance may be transported in a molten form.
Clear colourless to light yellow liquid
2-Chloropyridine (2-CPY) has been identified as a trace organic chemical in process streams, wastewater and even drinking water. Furthermore, it appears to be formed as a secondary pollutant during t
he decomposition of specific insecticides.
