Project at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Trichloroacetic acid is a colorless, crystalline solid which is used in liquid solutions. It is used in making medicines, pharmaceuticals, and pesticides.
  • TCA is a pre-emergence herbicide for the control of annual and perennial grasses in oilseed rape, sugar beet, fodder beet, asparagus , rhubarb,
    carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, peas, field beans, lettuce, alfalfa, sunflowers, sugar cane, cotton, flax, rice, gladioli and on non-crop areas.
  • Trichloroacetic acid is a chemical that is commonly used for cosmetic skin peels and removal of warts, skin tags, moles, and tattoos.
  • TCA - sodium is a halogenated alkonoic acid systemic herbicide.
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is an industrial chemical that is found in nature mainly through its use as a herbicide against perennial weeds.
  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCAA) was not only used as herbicide, but also formed in the environment itself in many ways.
  • Trade names for trichloroacetic acid include Aceto-Caustin and Amchem Grass Killer.
  • Trichloroacetic acid is produced on an industrial scale by chlorination of acetic acid or chloroacetic acid at 140–160 °C.
  • Trichloroacetic acid is used as a caustic on the skin or mucous membranes to treat local lesions and for the treatment of various dermatological diseases.
  • It is also used extensively as a precipitant of protein in the chemical analysis of body fluids and tissue extracts, and as a decalcifier and fixative in
  • Trichloroacetic acid is used as a soil sterilizer and a laboratory intermediate or reagent in the synthesis of a variety of medicinal products and organic chemicals.
  • Three processes were used to manufacture TCA: exhaustive chlorination of acetic acid, oxidation of chloral (CCl3CHO) using H2O2 and hydrolytic oxidation of PCE.
  • Trichloroacetic acid has been determined in water using liquid–liquid extraction, conversion to its methyl ester and gas chromatography with electron capture detection.
  • Trichloroacetic acid is also used industrially as an etching and pickling agent for the surface treatment of metals and as a solvent in the plastics industry.
  • Available information indicates that trichloroacetic acid is produced by nine companies in India, two companies each in China, Germany and Mexico and one company each in France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Russia and Spain.
