Diacid chloride monomer phosgene that reacts with dihydroxy
monomer Bisphenol-A to make polycarbonates

Phosgene is highly reactive even with weak nucleophiles like phenolates of BPA.

It is also very toxic, and was used as a poison gas in WWI.

The other monomer involved is Bisphenol-A and of course,
you also need base to neutralize the HCl liberated, and a good hood.

Use your mouse on the model to rotate and zoom.
