Applications of 2-Chloro-6-(trichloromethyl)pyridine (CTC) 

2-chloro-6-trichloromethyl pyridine (CTC) is obtained by stepwise deep chlorination of 2-methylpyridine. CTC has a wide range of applications. For example, 2-Chloro-6-(trichloromethyl)pyridine (CTC) can be used as the inhibitor of nitration and oxidation, and the soil protective agent of nitrogen fertilizers. It can also be used to produce chlorfenapyr, a pesticide with certain herbicidal activity and can control cyanobacteria in water.
