Dichloroacetic acid is an organochlorine compound and a corrosive liquid with ammoniacal odor. Its natural occurrence is in seaweeds.
The compound is a versatile chemical reagent. It also possesses medicinal properties and is used as such to treat lactic acidosis, whereby it stems production of lactic acid. It is also employed as a disinfectant.
Dichloroacetic acid is commercially produced as a by-product in chlorination of acetic acid, the main product being chloroacetic acid.
|Medicinal||As an astringent.|
Its salts are used as drugs in inhibition of the enzyme Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Kinase.
|Pharmaceutical||Dichloroacetic acid forms a starting raw material in the manufacture of API Chloramphenicol.|

Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. It is a colorless liquid that is virtually insoluble in water but soluble in many organic solvents. It typically occurs in nature as a triglyceride (ester of glycerin) rather than as a free fatty acid.
Ethyl Linoleate belongs to the chemical class of fatty acids, which are organic compounds with one or more long hydrocarbon chains. These molecules are characterized by having two carbons atoms with a double bond between them.
2-Phenylethylamine is a water-soluble amine with a fishy odor. It is often referred to simply as “phenethylamine”, but that can also be interpreted as 1-phenylethylamine.
4-Amino-1,2,4-triazole is an organic solid belonging to the heterocyclic category of compounds. By virtue of presence of 3 nitrogen atoms, the molecule is biologically active and thus acts as antimicrobial and antifungal agent.
4’-Cyanoacetophenone is an organic solid. It belongs to cyclic nitriles category. The presence of cyano group makes the compound reactive to form various intermediates and a few APIs. In organics syntheses, it also used as a catalyst.
3- Bromothianisole is a brominated aromatic compound with an active methyl thio group for oxidation. It has many applications in pharmaceutical and biotech industries as an intermediate for the synthesis of various organic compounds
Dichloroacetyl chloride, acronymed DCAC, is an organic solvent that belongs to the category of acid chlorides. Its uses include manufacture of APIs, agrochemicals, and a series of intermediates. It is also applied in synthesis of biologically active compounds.
