Properties and stability


Storage method

Store in an airtight container away from light.

Synthesis method

Using mixed xylene as raw material, it is first sulfonated with 98% sulfuric acid to generate m-xylene sulfonate. The oil layer containing o- and p-xylene is separated from the sulfonation reaction product, washed with water, dried, and o- and p-xylene is distilled under reduced pressure. The by-product m-xylene can be obtained by hydrolysis of m-xylene sulfonate. 1,4-bis(trichloromethyl)benzene is obtained by chlorination of o- and p-xylene: put o- and p-xylene into the reaction pot, and then add benzoyl peroxide and triethanolamine. After heating to 70°C, introduce chlorine gas under light irradiation, react at 70-80°C for 6 hours, and then raise the temperature to 100-120°C to continue the reaction until the relative density of the reaction solution reaches 1.560-1.580 (65°C), which is the end point of the reaction. Stop passing chlorine and remove residual chlorine under reduced pressure. Cool to 5°C, filter, wash to obtain crude product, recrystallize, and decolorize with activated carbon to obtain finished product.


Anti-schistosomiasis drugs. It has certain effects on liver fluke disease, amoebiasis, malaria and intestinal nematodes. However, adverse reactions to the nervous system are more common, and delayed reactions last longer.
