Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2018–2026
Chloroform is an organic compound with a molecular formula of CHCl3 and
belongs to the group of compounds known as trihalomethanes. It is available in
the form of a clear colorless liquid with a typical odor. Chloroform is relatively
unreactive, conveniently volatile, and miscible with most organic liquids, thus
being used as a common solvent for laboratory purposes. It is usually
non-flammable in nature, though it burns under extreme conditions.
It is used as a solvent in the pharmaceutical industry and for producing dyes and
pesticides. Chloroform is generally produced by the action of bleaching powder
on alcohol or acetone. In this process, the bleaching powder acts partially as an
oxidizing agent and partially as a chlorinating agent. Chloroform is purified by
washing and rectification and is also prepared from chlorination of methane.
Chloroform proves to be an excellent solvent for alkaloids in their base form. In
laboratories, Chloroform comprising of deuterium (CDCl3), is commonly used
as a solvent in NMR spectroscopy. Chloroform is also majorly used in the
production of Freon refrigerant R-22. In laboratories, it is used for the
preservation of organic tissues, which includes anatomical specimens, to
prevent decay. It is also used as an industrial solvent in photography, waxes,
fats, oils, resins, greases, adhesives, and dry cleaning.
