Monochloroacetic acid plays a major role in daily lives
Monochloroacetic acid (MCAA) plays a major role in the manufacture of many products which are well-known and important in our daily lives.The most noteworthy characteristic of this chemical intermediate is its bifunc-tional reactivity.MCAA is used in manufacturing a variety of products including herbicides and pharma-ceuticals, anesthetics, tranquilizers and amphoteric surfactants,which are cleansing agents used in shampoos.

As indicated,
Monochloroacetic acid and its alkali salts can be used in the manufacture of a wide variety of chemical products.For example,MCAA is converted to sodium chloroac etate and then reacted with alkali cellulose to produce carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).CMC is used in a broad range of applications,including detergents,food,textiles,coatings,drilling muds,pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.

Another common end use for
Monochloroacetic acid is in the productionof phenoxy herbicides.For instance,MCAA is convertedto sodium chloroacetate and then reacted with 2,4- dichlorophenol to produce 2,4-dichlorophenoxyaceticacid (2,4-D).Additional applications for chemicals derived from MCAA include pharmaceuticals,plastic additives and cosmetics.
