Application

Hexachloro-2-propanone (hexachloroacetone) was used in the synthesis of chirally deuterated benzyl chlorides and enol phosphate 2,2-dichloro-1-(trichloromethyl)ethenyl diethyl phosphate. It was also used in obtaining efficient amino acid activation by exploiting the rapid formation of acid chlorides under low temperature and acid/base free conditions.

General description

Hexachloro-2-propanone is a colorless liquid. It is present in herbicide Bromacil formulation. Hexachloro-2-propanone is precursor for the generation and cycloaddition of oxyallyl intermediates. It reverts the Ames strains TA98 and TA100 but not the non-plasmid strains TA1537, TA1535 and TA1538.
