Chloral hydrate CasNo.: 302-17-0 is a geminal diol with the formula C2H3Cl3O2. It is a colorless solid. It has limited use as a sedative and hypnotic pharmaceutical drug. It is also a useful laboratory chemical reagent and precursor. It is derived from chloral (trichloroacetaldehyde) by the addition of one equivalent of water.
Moreover, chloral hydrate is used as a reagent for the deprotection of acetals, dithioacetals and tetrahydropyranyl ethers in organic solvents.


  1. For electroplating industry, chloral hydrate can used to adjust the electronic potential difference in semi-bright nickel electroplating; it can effectively remove the active sulfur in the bath and improve the electronic potential difference.
  2. For pharmacy, it can used as a hypnotic drug and anti-eclampsia drug.
  3. For agriculture, it can be used as intermediate of herbicides and other types of pesticides. CasNo.: 302-17-0
