Moisture Sensitive
Soluble in alcohol, benzene and ether. Insoluble in water.


p-Toluenesulfonyl chloride is used as a precursor in the production of dyes and saccharin. It acts as a dehydrating agent in the conversion of urea to carbodiimide and converts alcohols into the corresponding toluenesulfonate esters. It is also employed as a flow-promoting agent for paints, an adhesive, nitrocellulose, coating material and as a plasticizer for polyamides. Furthermore, it serves as an antistatic agent, as a gloss enhancer in plastic film preparations and as a basic material of electroplating solutions.


Moisture sensitive. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents and strong bases.
