1,2-Dichloropropane is an organic compound classified as a chlorocarbon. It is a colorless, flammable liquid with a chloroform-like odor.

1,2-Dichloropropane is used as a chemical intermediate in the production of perchloroethylene and other chlorinated chemicals.[2] In the past, 1,2-dichloropropane was used as a soil fumigant, chemical intermediate, and industrial solvent and was found in paint strippers, varnishes, and furniture finish removers but these uses have been mostly discontinued.[2]
