Description

Application

1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol can be used as a reactant to synthesize:
  • Hydroxyl-N-tosylcyclams via sodium ethoxide catalyzed cyclization reaction with di(poly)-N-tosylamides.
  • (R)-Epichlorohydrin using biocatalysts.
  • 1,3-dichloropropene, a soil fumigant, and synthetic glycerol.

It can also be used as an intermediate in the production of epoxy resins, as well as a solvent for hard resins and nitrocellulose.

General description

1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol is a food processing contaminant. Biotransformation of 1,3-dichloro-2-propanol to epichlorohydrin by the whole cells of recombinant Escherichia coli via resin-based in situ product removal has been investigated.
