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.
Phenyl chloroformate is manufactured by phosgenation of phenol. Less hazardous synthesis route involves phenol, MDC, and triphosgene.
|Synonyms||Chloroformic acid phenyl ester|
Applications in APIs
Chloroformic acid phenyl ester is a key intermediate in the production of APIs:
|Leuprorelin||Prostate cancer treatment|
|Xamoterol hemifumerate||Cardiac stimulant|
Applications in Intermediate Syntheses
PCF forms an important raw material for the following intermediate compounds:
|Ethyl phenyl carbonate|
|Benzyl phenyl carbonate|
Applications in Agrochemicals
PCF is used to manufacture sulphonyl urea herbicides such as Amidosulfuron and Flazasulfuron.
The chloroformate exhibits further versatility as:
|Precursor of phenyl mixed anhydrides which are couplers in peptide synthesis|
|Dehydrating agent to convert amides into nitriles|

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.
