Oxalyl chloride is a colorless liquid with pungent odor. The chloride is volatile and moisture sensitive. As a useful reagent employed in a variety of chemical syntheses, it finds applications in APIs, intermediates, and agrochemicals.
The acid chloride is produced by chlorination of oxalic acid by using phosphorous pentachloride.
Oxalic acid dichloride
Oxalyl chloride is a KRM to produce the following APIs:
The acid chloride is also a raw material in manufacture of many plant protection products such as:
Other Vital Applications

Sodium Xylene Sulfonate is a hydrotrope used to solubilise hydrophobic compounds and in aqueous solutions as well in the study of liposome systems. Sodium Xylene Sulfonate solution may be used in chemical synthesis studies.
γ-Butyrolactone (GBL) is a hygroscopic colorless, water-miscible liquid with a weak characteristic odor. It is the simplest 4-carbon lactone. It is mainly used as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals, e.g., methyl-2-pyrrolidone. In humans GBL acts as a prodrug for γ-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB), and it is used as a recreational CNS depressant with effects like those of barbiturates.
Phenyl chloroformate (PCF), an organic, volatile liquid, is an important reactant in chemical syntheses. It forms a series of intermediates that are further consumed to produce APIs, agrochemicals, and polymers. The chloroformate is also employed in proteomic research and itself is a phosgenation reagent.
1-Aminoanthraquinone is a key intermediate used in the preparation of colorants including dyes and pigments as well as other specialty chemicals.
Potassium borohydride (KBH4) is an inorganic chemical with unique reducing power that is used in chemical synthesis. Whereas it easily generates a hydrogen atom quintessential for reduction processes, the borohydride reacts violently with water. It is toxic by ingestion. KBH4 finds large consumption in agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and intermediates.
Curcumin is a bright yellow chemical produced by plants of the Curcuma longa species. It is the principal curcuminoid of turmeric (Curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It is sold as an herbal supplement, cosmetics ingredient, food flavoring, and food coloring.
Triphenyl phosphite (TPP) is an organophos-phorous compound and is a colorless, viscous liquid with high boiling point. It possesses a characteristic, delicate fragrance. Its uses can be found largely in polymers. Besides, it participates as a reactant in organic syntheses.
Lithium bromide (LiBr) is a white, hygroscopic solid. The hygroscopic nature makes it a versatile chemical that can be put to various end uses. It is usually sold in anhydrous form or in aqueous solutions of varying concentrations.
Valeraldehyde, an aliphatic compound, is a colorless liquid with intense, clinging odor. It is naturally abundant in many essential oils. Apart from being an aroma chemical itself, it is applied to synthesize downstream products that are F&F chemicals and intermediates.
