Miscible with dichloromethane, ether, terahydrofuran and protic solvents.


Trichloroacetyl isocyanate is used as an in-situ derivatizing reagent for characterization of alcohols, glycols, phenols, and amines by nuclear magnetic resonance. It is also used in anion chemical ionization mass spectrometry and in catalytic one-pot dehydrative glycosylation of 1-hydroxy carbohydrate. Further, it serves as a reagent for the conversion of alcohols into carbamates.


Moisture sensitive. Store in a cool place. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with acids and strong oxidizing agents.
