What are the uses of guanidine hydrochloride (50-01-1)


Guanidine hydrochloride, chemical name carbamidine hydrochloride, molecular formula CH6ClN3, CAS number is 50-01-1, is CAS: 50-01-1, guanidine hydrochloride has a wide range of applications in medicine, pesticides, scientific research and other fields. This article will introduce The properties and main uses of guanidine hydrochloride.

Guanidine hydrochloride is a white crystalline powder with a relative density of 1.354g/mL and a melting point of 180-185 °C. Guanidine hydrochloride is soluble in water, ethanol, methanol, and almost insoluble in acetone, benzene and ether. Guanidine hydrochloride itself is relatively unstable and is easily hydrolyzed into ammonia and urea. Its toxicity is the same as that of urea, but guanidine and its derivatives are generally more toxic than urea. Guanidine hydrochloride is harmful to inhalation and swallowing. It is irritating to eyes and skin. Avoid direct contact during operation. Wear protective clothing and goggles for protection.


Guanidine hydrochloride has applications in many fields and has a wide range of uses. The details are as follows:

(1) Intermediate: Guanidine hydrochloride is mostly used as an intermediate for the synthesis of organic substances such as pharmaceuticals and pesticides, and is an important raw material for the manufacture of sulfa drugs and folic acid;

(2) Protein denaturant: Guanidine hydrochloride is a commonly used protein denaturant, which is often used for nucleic acid extraction. It can quickly destroy cell membranes, denature proteins, and denature and precipitate proteins, so that nucleic acids can get rid of the entanglement of proteins;

(3) Antibacterial agent: Guanidine hydrochloride can be used to prepare guanidine salt antibacterial agent to enhance the antibacterial performance of paper; it can also be used to prepare guanidine-based bactericidal scale and corrosion inhibitor, which has broad-spectrum bactericidal performance and can effectively kill oil field water Sulfate-reducing bacteria, saprophytic bacteria and iron bacteria, etc., to remove the scale-forming substances in the oil field reinjection water and the scale generated on the inner wall of the pipeline;

(4) Reducing agent: Guanidine hydrochloride can be used as a reducing agent to prepare graphene.

There are many other uses of guanidine hydrochloride, which are not summarized here. It is worth mentioning that guanidine hydrochloride is the raw material of the nucleic acid detection reagent for the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, which has important practical value for epidemic prevention and control. In short, guanidine hydrochloride It is a very important reagent.
