Short Description

Methylene chloride (or DCM, dichloromethane) is a synthetic organic compound with the chemical formula CH 2 Cl 2 that does not occur in nature. It is colorless, has a soft sweet smell, and is a liquid at room temperature. This volatile liquid with a moderately sweet smell is commonly used as a solvent. Immiscible with water but miscible with many organic solvents




  • Methylene Chloride is used as solvent in many industrial processes.
  • The low boiling point of the chemical compound allows the chemical to operate in a heat engine that can draw mechanical energy from small temperature differences. An example of a DCM heat engine is the booze. The toy works at room temperature.
  • It is a common paint remover and degreaser.
  • It is used to decode coffee and tea in the food industry.
  • In the pharmaceutical industry, ampicillin, hydroxy benzyl penicillin and cephalosporin, etc. as a reaction medium for the preparation; It is also used as a solvent in solvent, aerosol propellant gases, organic synthetic extractants, polyurethane foam as a solvent in plastic production foaming agents and metal cleaners.
  • Volatility has been used as an aerosol spray propellant and as a blowing agent for polyurethane foams.
  • Widely used in the production of safety film and polycarbonate and others are used as coating solvents, metal degreasers, polyurethane blowing agents, mold release agents and paint scrapers.
