About Epichlorohydrin. Epichlorohydrin (a.k.a. ECH, Chloromethyloxirane) is an epoxide and an organochlorine compound. It is not a halohydrin, as its name could suggest. In its pure form, epichlorohydrin is a clear, colorless liquid. The versatility conferred by the presence of both an epoxide ring and a chlorine atom earns its wide use as a chemical intermediate, allowing epichlorohydrin to react with many types of compounds.
Chemical Formula. C3H5ClO
Commercial Grades. Commercial grade epichlorohydrin can be found listed as being of a min. 98.0 % of purity (with max. water content of 0.1%) but is more typically found in its technical grade (min. 99.9% purity, with max. water content of 0.05%).
Uses. Wet strength resins for the paper industry; water treatment chemicals; surfactants; elastomers; intermediate for paints, solvent for cellulose esters and ethers; manufacturing of copolymers for decolorization, flocculation and clarification of refinery sugar liquors and juices; starch crosslinking agent.
- Allyl chloride + chlorine + calcium hydroxide (hypochlorination/epoxidation)
- Glycerol + hydrogen chloride + sodium hydroxide (hydrochlorination/dehydrochlorination)

Derivatives. Epoxy resins; glycerol; chlorohydrin; glycidol.
Methodology. The chemicals pricing data Intratec provides its customers with is obtained from the collection/refining of foreign trade data officially reported by the respective countries. Usually, such information is reported by governmental agencies and/or institutions related to foreign trade, or by statistical surveys conducted by countries/organizations.
