Change the chemical properties of molecules
Benzyl chloride is an intermediate chemical used in the production of a variety of materials. The primary purpose of benzyl chloride is to add benzyl functionality to different molecules to change their chemical properties. This is used in the production of plasticizers, sanitizing agents, oil extraction materials, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, biocides, dyes & pigments, heat exchanging fluids, flavors & fragrances, benzyl alcohol and specialty chemicals.
Benzyl alcohol has a wide range of applications, including paints and coatings, flavor and fragrance, personal care and pharmaceuticals. It is broadly used as a solvent due to its low toxicity and volatility. In addition to our standard grade, we also offer an EP/USP/NF compliant grade of benzyl alcohol.
Benzaldehyde is broadly used in the flavor and fragrance industry, with its typical aromatic almond odor and as precursor of further downstream ingredients. It is further also used as building block in pharmaceutical applications, insecticides and dyestuffs.
Benzotrichloride is used in the production of benzoyl chloride, and serves as precursor for benzophenone and other UV-stabilizers, agrochemicals and pharmaceutical applications.
The most important application of benzoyl chloride is the production of benzoyl peroxide, that is commonly used for skin treatment, as an initiator in the polymer industry and to bleach wheat and rice.
Orthochlorobenzylchloride is used as a building block in several agro-chemical formulations.
