Considering that its discovery in 1854, chlorosulfonic acid has established that it's a really flexible reagent. it truly is frequent as a sulfonating and chlorosulfonating agent, fairly of natural compounds, and it presents worthwhile artificial intermediates for lots of branches of undefined. This e-book presents an in depth, modern account of the reactions of chlorosulfonic acid with aliphatic, fragrant and heterocyclic compounds; reactions with components and inorganic compounds also are mentioned, in addition to using the reagent as a strong acid catalyst and dehydrating agent. eventually, the industrial makes use of and manufacture of chlorosulfonic acid are reviewed. The particular assurance during this publication, coupled with the various references to fresh paintings, will make sure that it truly is welcomed as a reference by means of artificial chemists in, for instance, the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, plastic and detergent industries. Researchers and their scholars in academia also will locate it a necessary addition to their bookshelves.
