What is Chloranil
Chloranil is an organic compound with the formula C6Cl4O2. It is a yellow solid that is used as a reagent in chemical synthesis and as a herbicide. Chloranil is classified as a dinitroaniline herbicide, which means it is used to kill weeds in agricultural fields. It is relatively toxic to humans and other mammals, and it can be harmful if ingested or inhaled. As a result, it is important to use caution when handling chloranil and to follow safety guidelines and regulations when using it as a herbicide.
How is Chloranil produced
Chloranil is typically produced through a chemical synthesis process involving the reaction of tetrachloroquinone with aniline. The reaction is typically carried out in a solvent, such as acetone or methanol, and it produces chloranil as a solid yellow precipitate. The precipitate is then filtered and dried to obtain the final product.
There are several variations of this synthesis process that have been developed, and the specific details of the process can vary depending on the specific conditions and materials used. It is important to note that the production of chloranil involves the use of hazardous chemicals and should be carried out in a well-ventilated area with appropriate safety measures in place.

As a result, it is important to use caution when handling chloranil and to follow safety guidelines and regulations when using it as a herbicide.
In chemical synthesis, chloranil is used as an oxidizing agent, meaning it can facilitate the transfer of oxygen atoms from one compound to another. It is also used as a catalyst in certain chemical reactions.
In addition to its use in chemical synthesis and as a herbicide, chloranil has also been studied for its potential use in the production of dyes, pigments, and other materials. However, it is not widely used in these applications due to its toxicity and other concerns.

Notes on the price-data
- We aim to update the data series on the 9th and 24th of each month (but we do not always make it for each chart)
- The data for the current month and recent history are fine-tuned over time.
- We are continually improving our data collection and processing methods
- Pricing data will be updated from time to time as we improve the accuracy
- We will improve our price trend algorithm before December 31, 2023.
- There will be continuous fine-tuning of the trend and forecast algorithm until end of December 2023.
- As part of that process, we will add many additional indexes in the final quarter of 2023
- This the index trend of the price of the product group in general and not a single specification in particular
- The source of the data are exclusively public non-confidential sources
- We combine public publications, import/export records, company announcements, and sources of ad-hoc public information.
- The chart shows the price trend, nearly always taken from many statistically-correlated sources
- The data is presented in US$. The UOM of measure is shown in the Index list table
- We do our best to create an accurate representation of the trend
- We assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions in the content of this site.
