  • Paraformaldehyde commonly has a slight odor of formaldehyde due to decomposition.
  • Paraformaldehyde is a poly-acetal.


  • Paraformaldehyde forms slowly in formaldehyde solutions (formaline) as a white precipitate, especially if stored in the cold.

  • A few percent of methanol is often added as a stabilizer to limit the extent of polymerization.


  • As a formaldehyde releasing agent, paraformaldehyde is a suspected carcinogen.
  • The new modification involves immersion in 10% formalin following impregnation in ammoniacal silver nitrate, and the use of a low concentration of 4% paraformaldehyde in the developer.


  • Paraformaldehyde is used as a thermoplastic and is known known as polyoxymethylene plastic.
  • Paraformaldehyde is used as fumigant, disinfectant, and fungicide, and for the preparation of pure formaldehyde.
