Description

Benzenesulfonyl chloride is an organosulfur compound with the formula C6H5SO2Cl. It is a colourless viscous oil that dissolves in organic solvents, but reacts with compounds containing reactive N-H and O-H bonds. It is mainly used to prepare sulfonamides and sulfonate esters by reactions with amines and alcohols, respectively. The closely related compound toluenesulfonyl chloride is often preferred analogue because it is a solid at room temperature and easier to handle.
The compound is prepared by the chlorination of benzenesulfonic acid or its salts with phosphorus oxychloride or, less commonly, by a reaction between benzene and chlorosulfuric acid.
The Hinsberg test for amines involves their reaction with benzenesulfonyl chloride.

5.Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Excerpt from ERG Guide 156 [Substances - Toxic and/or Corrosive (Combustible / Water-Sensitive)]: Note: Most foams will react with the material and release corrosive/toxic gases. SMALL FIRE: CO2, dry chemical, dry sand, alcohol-resistant foam. LARGE FIRE: Water spray, fog or alcohol-resistant foam. FOR CHLOROSILANES, DO NOT USE WATER; use AFFF alcohol-resistant medium-expansion foam. Move containers from fire area if you can do it without risk. Use water spray or fog; do not use straight streams. FIRE INVOLVING TANKS OR CAR/TRAILER LOADS: Fight fire from maximum distance or use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles. Do not get water inside containers. Cool containers with flooding quantities of water until well after fire is out. Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank. ALWAYS stay away from tanks engulfed in fire. (ERG, 2016)

5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: May contain highly toxic and irritating hydrogen chloride and oxides of chlorine and sulfur. Behavior in Fire: Cylinder may explode. Decomposes to produce highly toxic chlorine and sulfur compounds. Reacts with hot water to produce highly toxic and corrosive hydrochloric acid and benzenesulfonic acid. (USCG, 1999)

  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

No data were located concerning the biodegradation of benzenesulfonyl chloride either in natural systems or in laboratory studies(SRC). Since benzenesulfonyl chloride rapidly hydrolyzes in water(1,SRC), biodegradation probably will not be an important process in the environment(SRC).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

Since benzenesulfonyl chloride rapidly hydrolyzes in water(1), bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is not expected to be a significant process(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Since benzenesulfonyl chloride rapidly hydrolyzes in water(1) and presumably in moist soil(SRC), adsorption to soil is not expected to be a significant process(SRC).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
