    Brief Overview
    1,2,3-Trichloropropane (TCP) is a chemical compound that was an impurity in 1,3-
    dichloropropenefumigants manufactured by Shell Chemical Company and Dow Chemical
    Company. Exposure by inhalation, skin contact, or ingestion can be harmful to health.

    Manufacturing Process
    1,2,3-Trichloropropane can be produced via the chlorination of propylene. Other reported
    methods for producing 1,2,3-trichloropropane include the addition of chlorine to allyl
    chloride, reaction of thionyl chloride with glycerol, and the reaction of phosphorus
    pentachloride with either 1,3- or 2,3-dichloropropanol.
    TCP also may be produced as a by-product of processes primarily used to produce chemicals
    such as dichloropropene (a soil fumigant), propylene chlorohydrin, propylene oxide,
    dichlorohydrin, and glycerol.

    TCP has been used as a paint or varnish remover, a cleaning and degreasing agent, and was
    an impurity in certain pesticides. It is also used as a chemical intermediate in the process of
    making chemicals, such as hexafluoropropylene and polysulfides, and as an industrial


    1,2,3-TCP had purportedly been used in the past as a solvent for paint and varnish removal,
    as a cleaning and degreasing agent, and as a cleaning and maintenance solvent. No current
    information is available to indicate that it continues to be used for these purposes.
     Liquid polysulfide polymers are used mainly as sealants in manufacturing applications,
    including applications related to double-paned windows, boat hulls and decks, printing rolls,
    integral aircraft fuel tanks, and aircraft bodies.
