Triphenylmethyl chloride is a white solid halogenated hydrocarbon. It is used in the industry as an organic insecticide and fungicide on plants, fruits and vegetables.

It is a powerful nerve poison with a fast kill, so it is toxic. It functions as a pre-synaptic acetylcholinesterase inhibitor that works by hydrolyzing the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and inhibiting cholinesterases.

So its mode of operation is to disrupt neuronal synapses, which causes death due to paralysis by excitatory junctional over-activity.

It can cause kidney damage, liver problems and blood disorders when applied externally on people or animals.


Triphenylmethyl chloride is used as an organic insecticide and fungicide on plants, fruits and vegetables.

It kills many insects, including aphids, mites and scale insects, thrips, and leaf miner and gall midge larvae. 

It can also be used as a lysis agent for cell culture media, a solvent for chromatographic analysis, and a precursor for other chemicals.

It is often employed to separate mixtures into their pure ingredients or fractions using solid support with specific polar or non-polar properties that allow only certain substances from the original mixture to enter it at any given time.
