Acetyl chloride Chemical Properties,Usage,Production

Uses

Acetyl Chloride is a very useful synthetic intermediate. It is a derivative of acetic acid, a weak acid, used as a reagent in numerous industrial processes. It is a chemical for acetylation in the synthesis or derivatization of organic compounds.

Physical and chemical properties

It appears as colorless fuming liquid with a strong odor and eye irritation effect. The relative density of 1.1051 (20 ° C), the melting point of-112 ° C, the boiling point of 51-52 ° C and the flash point is 4.4 ° C (closed dish). In the wet air, it can slowly undergo decomposition and give white smoke. When coming across water, it can be violently hydrolyzed into acetic acid and hydrogen chloride, and thus should be sealed for storage. It is miscible with benzene, acetone, chloroform, ether, glacial acetic acid and petroleum ether. Liquid is heavier than water with the vapor being heavier than air. Its chemical nature is lively. It can have metathesis reaction with many compounds. Acetyl chloride can bind to the thiol group in the protein, and therefore being toxic to humans. It is an important kind of acetylation agents with its acylation capability being stronger than acetic anhydride. It is widely used in organic synthesis, being also the catalyst for the chlorination of carboxylic acids. It is manufactured through the mixing of glacial acetic acid and phosphorus trichloride in cold condition with further heating, followed by dehydrochloration distillation.

Dangerous situation

(1) It has corrosive effect against the skin and mucous membranes with strong irritant effect on the eyes.
(2) It is easily flammable with the burning point being 390 ℃ and a greater risk of combustion. Its vapor can form an explosive mixture with air with the explosion limit remaining not be determined. Since the vapor is heavier than air, it can spread to a considerable distance and cause ignition of a source of fire and further propagate the flame back. It can have violent reaction when coming across water and alcohol. When being heated to decomposition, it can release HCl and highly toxic phosgene gas.

The main purpose

Acetyl chloride is the most commonly used acetylating agent with reaction with alcohol and phenol generating acetate ether. Its reaction with ammonia can generate acetamide with its interaction with primary amine and secondary amine to generate N-substituted acetamide.
It can be used for the manufacturing of pharmaceutical industry, pesticide manufacturing, acetyl derivatives and dyes. It can be used as the reagents for the determination of phosphorus, cholesterol, water content contained in organic solvents, nitroso, hydroxyl and tetraethyl lead.
Acetyl chloride is the most important acyl halide and can be manufactured through the reaction between glacial acetic acid and thionyl chloride or phosphorus trichloride and phosphorus pentachloride.
The above information is edited by Andy from ChemicalBook.

Harmful effects and symptoms of poisoning

Production method

Industrial, acetyl chloride can be manufactured through the reaction between ethylene with hydrogen chloride, or the reaction between sodium acetate, sulfur dioxide and chlorine. The laboratory can apply acetic acid, sodium acetate or acetic anhydride to have reaction with a variety of chlorination agents. For example, it can be obtained through the reaction between acetic anhydride with chlorosulfonic acid (or hydrogen chloride, carbon tetrachloride, phosgene); or obtained through the reaction between glacial acetic acid and benzoyl chloride (or silicon tetrachloride, phosphorus trichloride, chlorinated sulfurous acid and phosphorus pentachloride,). OPERATION EXAMPLE 1: Ingredient ratio (molar ratio): glacial acetic acid: phosphorus trichloride = 3: 1.2. Glacial acetic acid was added to the reactor and stirred slowly. Phosphorus trichloride was added drop-wise over 10-15 min at room temperature. The reaction mixture is subjecting to heating to increase reaction temperature and subject to reaction being maintained at 40-50 °C for 0.5 h. The reaction product is static with the separation obtaining crude product of acetyl chloride and the yield of about 70%.
Operation Example 2 Into a 3 L three-necked flask, add 360 g (6 mol) of glacial acetic acid and 552 g of toluene; heat to 50 °C, and add dropwise 510 g (3 mol) of silicon tetrachloride over 30 min. Keep the temperature at 50 ° C to until hydrogen chloride gas stops being released. Then apply fractionation, steam to until the temperature of the top of the column reaches 80-85 ℃ to obtain the crude product. The fine product is further subject to re-distillation. Take the 50-65 °C fractions and obtain 400 g of acetyl chloride with the yield being 85%. Fixed consumption amount of raw materials: glacial acetic acid: 850kg/t, phosphorus trichloride: 1950kg/t.
