Applications
(S)-(+)-Epichlorohydrin is utilized for the synthesis of macquarimicins and hydroxyisoxazolidines and (+)-cis-sylvaticin, which is a potential antitumor agent. It is used to synthesize inhibitors of fatty acid oxidation as potential metabolic modulators. It acts as a solvent for natural and synthetic resins, gums, cellulose esters and ethers, paints, varnishes, nail enamels, lacquers and cement for celluloid. It is also used as a stabilizer and also useful as a bifunctional alkylating agent with the potential to form DNA cross-links.

Solubility
Miscible with chloroform and methanol. Immiscible with water.

Notes
