Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Storage & Sensitivity
Store under Argon. Moisture Sensitive. Ambient temperatures.
Reacts with water.


Reagent used in organic synthesis. Unncatalyzed reaction of silyl ketene acetals with oxalyl chloride yeilds symmetrical pulvinic acids. Catalytic syntheses of N-heterocyclic ynones and ynediones by in situ activation of carboxylic acids with oxalyl chloride. Oxalyl chloride was reportedly used in the first synthesis of dioxane tetraketone.
