Properties and stability

Avoid contact with strong oxidizing agents.

Storage method

Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. They should be stored separately from oxidants and food chemicals, and avoid mixed storage. Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire equipment. The storage area should be equipped with emergency release equipment and suitable containment materials.

Synthesis method

Add 3-chloropropene and bromine at normal pressure and 10-25°C, and the reaction product is purified by vacuum distillation. Add the original drug to the emulsifier and xylene, and emulsify at 55-60°C for half an hour to make an 80% emulsion. Raw material consumption quota: 3-chloropropene (92%) 310kg/t, liquid bromine 600kg/t


Mainly used as solvent, soil fumigant, and nematicide.
