Epichlorohydrin minor and niche applications


Epichlorohydrin is a able forerunner in the amalgam of abounding amoebic compounds. For example, it is adapted to glycidyl nitrate, an active adhesive used in atomic and propellant compositions. The epichlorohydrin is reacted with an acrid nitrate, such as sodium nitrate, bearing glycidyl nitrate and acrid chloride. It is used as a bread-and-butter for cellulose, resins, and paints, and it has begin use as an insect fumigant.
Polymers fabricated from epichlorohydrin, e.g., polyamide-epichlorohydrin resins, are used in cardboard accretion and in the aliment industry to accomplish tea bags, coffee filters, and sausage/salami casings as able-bodied as with baptize purification.
An important biochemical appliance of epichlorohydrin is its use as crosslinking abettor for the assembly of Sephadex size-exclusion chromatographic resins from dextrans.
