Monochloroacetic Acid (MCAA) is a key intermediate in the chemical industry due to a very reactive chlorine element in the acid, thus finding uses in a variety of applications such as carboxymethyl cellulose, amphoteric surfactants, agrochemicals and thioglycolic acid. MCAA is also used in the production of pharmaceuticals, dyes and plastic stabilizers.

Sodium Monochloroacetate (SMCA) is the sodium salt derivative of Monochloroacetic Acid obtained by neutralization with alkali. SMCA is used in similar applications especially carboxymethyl cellulose/starch and amphoteric surfactants. However, compared to MCAA which is classified as toxic and corrosive, SMCA is easier to handle due to its safety profile.

Chloroacetyl Chloride is a bifunctional compound prepared from Monochloroacetic Acid and is a useful building block chemical in the synthesis of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals. The major function of Chloroacetyl Chloride is as an intermediate in the production of herbicides in the chloroacetanilide family and various other chemical intermediates.

Dimethylaminopropylamine (DMAPA) contains one primary and one tertiary amine group, which makes it of interest in many applications. DMAPA is especially used in the preparation of surfactants such as cocamidopropyl betaine which is an ingredient in many personal care products. DMAPA is completely miscible with water, alcohols, esters and ketones.
3-Chloroperoxybenzoic Acid = 77%
3-Chloroperoxybenzoic Acid (MCPBA) is an extremely useful reagent in organic synthesis. It is used in oxidation reactions such as aldehydes and ketones to esters (Bayer-Villiger-Oxidation), olefines to epoxides, sulfides to sulfoxides and sulfones and amines to nitroalkanes, N-oxides. MCPBA is often preferred to other peroxy acids due to its relative ease of handling.
