Dichloromethane (DCM or methylene chloride) is an organochloride compound with the formula CH2Cl2. This colorless, volatile liquid with a chloroform-like, sweet odor is widely used as a solvent. Although it is not miscible with water, it is polar and miscible with many organic solvents.

Dichloromethane is an organic substance with a molecular formula of CH2Cl2. It is a colorless and transparent liquid with a pungent odor similar to ether. Slightly soluble in water, soluble in ethanol and ether, it is a non-flammable low-boiling solvent under normal conditions of use. When its vapor becomes a high concentration in high-temperature air, it will generate a weakly combustible mixed gas, which is often used instead of flammable Petroleum ether, ether, etc.

Dichloromethane is colorless, transparent, heavier than water, and volatile liquid. It has an ether-like smell and sweet taste. It does not burn but forms an explosive mixture after mixing with
high concentration oxygen. Dichloromethane is slightly soluble in water and miscible with the most commonly used organic solvents. It can also be miscible with other chlorinated solvents, ether, and ethanol in any proportion. Dichloromethane can quickly dissolve in phenol, aldehyde, ketone, glacial acetic acid, triethyl phosphate, formamide, cyclohexylamine, and ethyl acetoacetate.

Other names

Methylene chloride; Methylene dichloride, Solmethine; Narkotil; Solaesthin; Di-clo; Refrigerant-30; Freon-30; R-30; DCM; MDC

Product properties 

Colorless liquid with a characteristic odor. Relative density D4 1.326,Melting point-96.7°C,

Boiling point:40.4°C.If it is mixed with high concentrated Oxygen, the explosive mixture is formed,

but it is not inflammable.It is one of the low-boiling-point industrial solvents that have small toxicity,

no inflammable.

Product Applications 

Dichloromethane has strong solubility and no toxicity etc advantages.

It is widely used for manufacturing safety film and orthocarbonate and can also be used for solvent

of paint, cleaner for metal, gas-fog spray agents PO; urethane foaming agent, mold-release agent,

paint remover. Dichloromethane is also used in the manufacture of photographic film and has

been to remove caffeine from coffee.

Methylene chloride uses

1. Dichloromethane has the advantages of strong solubility and low toxicity. It is widely used in the manufacture of safety film and polycarbonate. The rest are used as coating solvent, metal
degreasing agent, gas smoke spray agent, polyurethane foaming agent, release agent, and paint remover.

2. Dichloromethane is a colorless liquid, which is used as a reaction medium in the pharmaceutical industry to prepare ampicillin, hydroxybenzylpenicillin, and vancomycin; It is also used as a solvent,
oil dewaxing solvent, aerosol propellant, organic synthesis extractant, polyurethane foaming agent, and metal cleaning agent in film production.

DCM's volatility and ability to dissolve a wide range of organic compounds make it a useful solvent for many chemical processes. In the food industry, it is used to decaffeinate coffee and tea as well as to prepare extracts of hops and other flavorings. Its volatility has led to its use as an aerosol spray propellant and as a blowing agent for polyurethane foams.
