Vinylidene Chloride, inhibited

Vinylidene Chloride, inhibited (C2H2Cl2) is a colorless, highly flammable liquid with a "sweet," chloroform-like odor. Because of its chemical structure, VDC is nearly insoluble in water, but it is soluble in most polar and non-polar organic solvents.. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Vinylidene Chloride, inhibited.
