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.
- 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.
- For pharmacy, it can used as a hypnotic drug and anti-eclampsia drug.
- For agriculture, it can be used as intermediate of herbicides and other types of pesticides. CasNo.: 302-17-0

Q: How About the Chloral hydrate of ZXCHEM?
A: Chloral hydrate is a chemical compound with various applications in different fields. Some of its key uses include:
Medical Sedation: Chloral hydrate has historically been used as a sedative and hypnotic medication in the field of medicine. It was commonly prescribed to induce sleep or relaxation before medical procedures or surgeries. However, its use has significantly declined over the years due to the development of safer and more effective alternatives.
Laboratory and Research: Chloral hydrate has been utilized as a solvent and fixative in laboratory settings, particularly in the preparation of histological (tissue) samples for microscopy. It can help preserve cell structures and prevent degradation during the staining and analysis process.
Chemical Synthesis: Chloral hydrate has been employed as a reagent in certain chemical reactions, primarily in the synthesis of other compounds. It has been used in organic chemistry as a starting material for the production of various chemicals.
Insect Killing Agent: In the field of entomology, chloral hydrate has been used to immobilize and euthanize insects for study and preservation. It is used in insect collections to prepare specimens for scientific research and educational purposes.
Preservation of Specimens: Chloral hydrate has been used to preserve biological specimens, such as small aquatic organisms, for scientific research and educational purposes. It helps prevent decomposition and maintains the structural integrity of the specimens.
