Chloroform is basically a colourless, volatile, liquid derivative of trichloromethane with an ether-like odour. Earlier it was utilised as an inhaled anaesthetic during surgery, but the primary use of chloroform today is in industries, where it is widely utilised as a solvent. It is majorly produced as a precursor to PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene). It is one of the four chloromethanes and a trihalomethane. It is a powerful anaesthetic and sedative when inhaled or ingested.
Chemical Formula of Chloroform:
- Methane Trichloride
- Freon 20
- Functional fluids
- Fluorinated refrigerants and fluorinated resins
- Extraction and purification of antibiotics
- Laboratory chemicals
- Production of Chloroform via Heating and Distillation
In order to produce Chloroform, a mixture of chlorine and either chloromethane or methane is heated, which produces a free radical halogenation at 400–500 °C, transforming the precursors to more chlorinated compounds. Further, as Chloroform undergoes chlorination to produce carbon tetrachloride, this process finally produces a mixture of four chloromethanes (chloromethane, dichloromethane, chloroform, and carbon tetrachloride), and thus, Chloroform is finally separated via distillation.
