The Characteristics and Application of PCMC

The 4-chloro-3-cresol, of which molecular formula is 59-50-7, is a kind of safe and high efficiency PCMC. It is easy to dissolve in the alcohol, ether, ketone, organic solution and alkali aqueous solution, and dissolve in grease completely. Its solubility is four grams per liter in the water. Its appearance is white and almost while tabular and clumps crystals, which is widely used in personal care products and leather, metal machining liquid, concrete, film, glue, oilation, spinning papermaking and other industrial fields.

It is colorless liquid or crystal with special odor, corrosivity and toxicity. It is difficult to dissolve in water. On the contrary, it is easy to dissolve in the aqueous alkali, methylbenzene, ethyl alcohol and other organic solution. It can generate oxidation action slowly. And its boiling point is 201.9℃, melting point is 34.69℃, and flash point is 86.1℃. Its spontaneous ignition point is 559℃. Its density ratio is 1.0178. Its steam and fog is bad for eyes, mucosa and respiratory tract. The poisoning is shown as burning sensation, cough, gasp, headache, emesis, breathe hard and laryngitis. It has strong irritating odor for skin. Actually, the para-chloro-meta-methylphenol has many uses, which would be introduced briefly as follows.

It is the raw material of anti-aging agent, which can be used as resin and plasticizer in elastic industry, as well as midbody and sanitizer in the medicine. In addition, it can also be applied in slice, pesticide, dye and other industries. With the rapid development of industry, the demands for p-chloro-m-cresol for cosmetics have increased continuously in the market. Besides, it has new uses which are the main raw material of ultraviolet light absorber in foreign market owing to the serious damage to the atmosphere and sun's influence on human in the recent years. Along with the increasing demands and development of new uses, its consumption has a significant increase in the market.

According to the market survey and analysis of personage inside course of study, its consumption is increasing at 10% to 15% rate annual year in the world. Therefore, it plays a good effect on the down-stream product and provides huge space for the development. For example, the raw material of synthetic docycycline, dipyridamole, naproxen and amoxicillin, the catalyst of acrylic ester, textile auxiliary agent and film in the production, as well as the curing agent of resin, coating, artificial board, casting and oil paint in the industry.
