This page was last edited on 15 Novemberat Chlorobenzene can be produced by from aniline via benzenediazonium chloridethe route being known as the Sandmeyer reaction. Chlorobenzene is manufactured by chlorination of benzene in the presence of a catalytic amount of Lewis acid such as ferric chloridesulfur dichlorideand anhydrous aluminium chloride: By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Chlorobenzene can persist in soil for several months, in air for about 3. This colorless, flammable liquid is a common solvent and a widely used intermediate in the manufacture of other chemicals.

The heating would have triggered a reaction of organics in the Martian soil, which is known to contain perchlorate. Ullmann’s Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry. Journal of Geophysical Research: In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Chlorobenzene is also used as a high-boiling solvent mdds many industrial chlorobenzzene as well as in the laboratory. However, because it has only been found at 97 out of 1, NPL hazardous waste sites, it is not considered a widespread environmental contaminant.

Humans may be exposed to this agent via breathing contaminated air primarily via occupational exposureconsuming contaminated food or water, or by coming into contact with contaminated soil typically near hazardous waste sites.

Inthe SAM science team announced that the Curiosity rover reported evidence of higher concentrations of chlorobenzene in a sedimentary rock, named ” Cumberland “, on Mars. Views Chlorobdnzene Edit View history. Upon entering the body, typically via contaminated air, chlorobenzene is excreted both via the lungs and the urinary system.

Chlorobenzene exhibits “low to moderate” toxicity as indicated by its LD 50 of 2.

LC Lo lowest published. Retrieved from ” https: These mononitrochlorobenzenes are converted to related 2-nitrophenol2-nitroanisole, bis 2-nitrophenyl disulfide, and 2-nitroaniline by nucleophilic displacement of the chloride, with respectively sodium hydroxidesodium methoxidesodium disulfide, and ammonia.


Chlorobenzene once was used in the manufacture of certain pesticidesmost notably DDTby reaction msdw chloral trichloroacetaldehydebut this application has declined with the diminished use of DDT. Chlorobenzene is an aromatic organic compound with the chemical formula C 6 H 5 Cl. Because chlorine is electronegative, C 6 H 5 Cl exhibits somewhat decreased susceptibility to further chlorination.

The catalyst enhances the electrophilicity of the chlorine. The conversions of the 4-nitro derivative are similar.

The major use of chlorobenzene is as an intermediate in the production of commodities such as herbicides, dyestuffs, and rubber. Industrially the reaction nsds conducted as a continuous process to minimize the formation of dichlorobenzenes. At one time, chlorobenzene was the main precursor for the manufacture of phenol: The bacterium Rhodococcus phenolicus degrades chlorobenzene as sole carbon sources.
