Epichlorohydrin is flammable epoxy compound, highly reactive and colorless liquid made by chlorine, milk of lime and propylene. It is miscible in diethyl ether, ethanol, and chloroform and insoluble in water. Phenoxy and unmodified epoxy resins are produced using epichlorohydrin as a raw material. Epichlorohydrin is used in the production of glycerin. Epichlorohydrin holds a stand in paper industries, water treatment plants and rubber factories owing to its wet strength and curing properties.

Epichlorohydrin is mainly utilized in the manufacturing of an epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is an important compound and used in various applications such as electronics, adhesives, construction and electrical. Increasing demand for epoxy resins in different applications would ultimately fuel the demand for epichlorohydrin. However, long-term exposure to epichlorohydrin has found to be harmful to human as well as for animals. Prolong contact with epichlorohydrin leads to blood-related diseases and respiratory problems. Mild contact with epichlorohydrin causes skin rashes irritation to eyes and difficulty in inhalation.
In animals especially in rats, inhalation of epichlorohydrin generated tumors. Research proved that it is hazardous for an environment as it pollutes water. Owing to the harmful effects of epichlorohydrin inventors have developed new procedure for the production of bio-based epichlorohydrins. Propylene was used traditionally in the production of epichlorohydrins is replaced by glycerin. Glycerin is a byproduct of biodiesel which is available easily and economically.
