Methyl Chloride (a.k.a. Chloromethane) is an organic compound, in the haloalkane (halogenated hydrocarbons) class. It is a colorless gas, with sweet ethereal odor, soluble in water and most organic compounds. Along with other organic chlorine derivatives, such as dichloromethane and chloroform, Methyl Chloride plays an important role in both economic and industrial standpoints, with a variety of uses as chemical intermediates and solvents. Chloromethane was first produced in 1835, by reacting sodium chloride with methanol in the presence of sulfuric acid, in a process that is not used industrially anymore. It was replaced by the hydrochlorination of methanol at the beginning of the twentieth century, which is still used today.
