Hexachlorophenol (HCP) is an organochloride of phenol. It is normally produced by electrophilic chlorination of phenol by chlorine gas in the presence of metal chloride catalyst, such as ferric chloride, which acts as a Lewis acid. It can also be produced by alkaline hydrolysis of chlorobenzenes at high temperature and pressure, by conversion of diazonium salts of chlorinated anilines, or by chlorination of phenolsulphonic acids and benzenesulphonic acids followed by removal of the sulphonic acid group.
