Allyl chloride is a highly versatile product due to its dual reactive sites at the double bond and the chlorine atom. Its most important derivative is epichlorohydrin, which is produced captively.
The largest allyl chloride market is the manufacture of a quaternary ammonium polymer (polyDADMAC) used as coagulant for water treatment, papermaking and the mining industry.
Other chemicals made from allyl chloride include a variety of allylamines, chlorosilane derivatives, and various intermediates in the production of agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals.
Solvay Chemicals, Inc. distributes allyl chloride in isocontainers. The product is imported from affiliated Solvay Group plants in Europe. The quality management systems of the plants and ancillary corporate activities are registered to the ISO 9001 standard.
