Global Benzoyl Chloride Market: Overview
Benzoyl chloride, also known as benzenecarbonyl chloride, is an organochlorine compound with chemical formula C6H5COCl. It is also known as alpha-chloro benzaldehyde. It is a colorless, fuming liquid, with an irritating odor. It is primarily used in the production of peroxides. It is also generally useful in other areas. For instance, benzoyl chloride is employed in the preparation of dyes, perfumes, pharmaceuticals, and resins. Benzoyl chloride is produced from benzotrichloride using either water or benzoic acid. Akin to other acyl chlorides, it can be generated from the parent acid and other chlorinating agents, phosphorus or thionyl chloride.
It was first prepared through the treatment of benzaldehyde with chlorine. Benzoyl chloride is a typical acyl chloride, which reacts with alcohols to give the corresponding esters. Similarly, it reacts with amines to give amides. Benzoyl chloride must be moderately heated or exposed to relatively high ambient temperatures before the ignition can occur. It possesses various properties. For instance, it readily undergoes violent chemical changes at elevated temperatures and pressures. It also reacts violently or explosively with water; hence, various safety considerations need to be taken while handling benzoyl chloride. Benzoyl chloride decomposes exothermically and rapidly in water to form insoluble benzoic acid and hydrochloric acid (HCl). Benzoyl peroxide is a common reagent in polymer chemistry that is produced industrially by treating benzoyl chloride with hydrogen peroxide and sodium hydroxide.
Global Benzoyl Chloride Market: Drivers and Restraints
Rise in demand for benzoyl chloride in the pharmaceuticals industry is propelling the benzoyl chloride market. Increase in usage of benzoyl chloride to prepare dye intermediates is also augmenting the benzoyl chloride market. On the other hand, its hazardous effects such as emission of highly poisonous gases such as phosgene make it a highly restricted chemical. It also needs to be handled with utmost safety. These factors are hampering the benzoyl chloride market. Exposure to benzoyl chloride benzoyl can lead to various human health hazards such as irritation to eyes, throat infections, and breathing problems. This is also adversely affecting the benzoyl chloride market.
