Orthodichlorobenzene (ODCB) is an organic compound with the formula C6H4Cl2, which is a strong solvent in liquid form. Orthodichlorobenzene, also called 1,2-dichlorobenzene, is a colorless liquid that poorly dissolves in water, but can mix with most organic solvents. This compound is a benzene derivative and has two chlorine atoms in the molecule at adjacent carbon atoms. By paying special attention to the production process and the use of high-quality raw materials in the production process, the product leaving the chlorobenzene installation is characterized by very high quality parameters.

The use of orthodichlorobenzene can be divided into 4 main segments:

  • agrochemicals,
  • API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients),
  • Specialist chemical syntheses,
  • Solvents, paints, pigments, rubber.

This compound is mainly used as a precursor in the synthesis of 1,2-dichloro-4-nitrobenzene, i.e. an intermediate used in the plant protection industry as an insecticide, as well as for softening and removing carbon impurities on metal surfaces. The high quality and purity of the product means that orthodichlorobenzene can be used as a raw material in specialized chemical syntheses and the pharmaceutical industry.

In addition, it can be used as a heat transfer medium in the extraction distillation process and as a solvent carrier in the production of TDI. It is an intermediate for the production of dyes, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and other organic syntheses. ODCB is also used as an industrial odor controller, wood preservative, as well as a component of preparations for engine oil additives, lubricants and paints.

The product is offered in steel barrels (250kg), isotanks, tank trucks.

Properties and applications:

  • very high product purity;
  • agrochemicals production;
  • used for the production of cleaning agents for metal surfaces;
  • production of active substances in the pharmaceutical industry (API – Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients);
  • raw material for specialist chemical syntheses;
  • solvents, paints, pigments, rubber;
