1,3,5-Benzenetricarboxylic acid chloride
Melting point:34.5-36 ºC
Boiling point:180 ºC (16 mmHg)
Benzene tricarboxylic acid chloride, also known as 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid chloride; 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid trichloride (often abbreviated as: TMC), a pale yellow solid powder at room temperature, having a pungent
odor. It can be obtained by reacting triphosgene with trimesic acid under base catalysis. The trimesoyl chloride is a monomer commonly used in the preparation of polyamide-based reverse osmosis membranes and nanofiltration
membranes. Preparation of nanofiltration membrane by complex polymerization of polysulfone (PSF)/polyethersulfone (PES) blended ultrafiltration membrane by interfacial polymerization using chitosan (CS) and trimesoyl
chloride (TMC) as reaction monomers . Pyromellitic acid chloride is also an important intermediate for the preparation of dyes, perfumes, pharmaceuticals and resins.
