About Methylene Chloride. Methylene Chloride (a.k.a. Dichloromethane, DCM) is a colorless, volatile, nonflammable, liquid chlorinated hydrocarbon with a sweet odor. It is mainly used as a solvent especially in paint removers, in the production of pharmaceuticals and as aerosol blowing agent. It emits toxic fumes when heated. It causes damage in the nervous system when inhaled and it irritates throat and nose.
Chemical Formula. CH2Cl2
Commercial Grades. Technical grade; aerosol; vapour degreasing special; urethane; food chemical codex/national formulary
Uses. Methylene Chloride is mainly used as non-flammable solvent; extraction solvent; aerosol blowing agent; and heat-transfer fluid.
- Methyl chloride + chlorine (thermal chlorination, coproduced with carbon tetrachloride/chloroform)
- Methane+ hydrogen chloride, anhydrous (oxychlorination; coproduced with carbon tetrachloride/chloroform/methyl chloride)
Derivatives. Methylene Chloride is used as raw material in the production of the following derivates: N-acetylthiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid; bromine chloride; bromochloromethane; carpropamid; cycloprothrin; difluoromethane; diphenylmethane; methylene bromide; 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-ethylaniline.
