Chemical Formula:  C7H7Cl

Apearance:  colourless liquid with a pungent odour

Melting Point:  -45 C

Boiling Point:  179 C

Vapor Density:  4.36 (air=1)

Vapor Pressure:  1 mm Hg at 20 C

Flash Point:  67 C (closed cup)

Explosion Limits:  1.1% (lower), 7.1% (

Stability:  Unstable - inhibitors such as propylene oxide or trimethylamine are usually added to prevent polymerization. Combustible. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, water, acids, most common metals, dimethyl sulfoxide. Above flash point vapour-air mixtures are explosive within the limits noted above. Contact with water produces toxic fumes.Analytical testing dots
