Example of using our Chlorinated hydrocarbons

General information

Chlorinated hydrocarbons form a group of organic compounds and a subgroup of halogenated hydrocarbons. The chlorinated hydrocarbons are divided into chlorinated alkanes, chlorinated alkenes and aromatic chlorinated hydrocarbons. On the one hand, their chemical properties make them indispensable for industry, on the other hand, they usually have a great potential to be harmful to the environment.

With an increasing degree of chlorination, the stability and lipophilicity (fat solubility) of the substances increases. This makes absorption more difficult for degrading microorganisms and the activation energy required to degrade the substances increases. The increased hydrophobicity (insolubility in water) of the substances also causes accumulation in animal fat tissue.

Areas of application

Important chlorinated hydrocarbons include methyl chloride, dichloromethane and trichloromethane.Many crop protection products, especially herbicides and insecticides, contain organochlorine compounds. They also play an important role in the manufacture of plastics (such as PVC) or as flame retardants. Numerous substances such as PCBs and lindane, which were long considered to be extremely useful and widely used, have now been banned again because they are proven to be harmful to people and the environment.
