Chlorinated Paraffins

Part of the The Handbook of Environmental Chemistry book series (HEC, volume 3 / 3A)


Chlorinated paraffins discussed in this chapter are compounds obtained by chlorination of C10–C30 paraffins to a chlorine content between 10 and 70%. The most frequent types of chlorinated paraffins are based on C12, C15, and C24 feedstocks and are chlorinated to 40–70% chlorine. Depending on the chlorine content, chlorinated paraffins range from mobile through highly viscous liquids to solids.
