Allyl chloride is converted into epichlorohydrin by adding hypochlorous acid to the alkene double bond (at 30°C) forming a mixture of dichlorohydroxypropane isomers. Under basic conditions (at 80°C), calcium hydroxide is usually used, an internal nucleophilic substitution occurs to give the chloro epoxide.
