3-Chloroperoxybenzoic acid (MCPBA) is a peroxycarboxylic acid. A white solid, it is used widely as an oxidant in organic synthesis. MCPBA is often preferred to other peroxy acids because of its relative ease of handling.
MCPBA can be prepared by reacting m-Chlorobenzoyl chloride with a basic solution of hydrogen peroxide, followed by acidification.
MCPBA is versatile applicable as peracid for use in laboratories.
