Abstract

Chloroform is a solvent for many substances, including fats, oils, rubber, alkaloids, waxes, gutta-percha, and resins. It has been used as an anesthetic, an insect fumigant, a cleansing agent, and in fire extinguishers (to depress the freezing point of carbon tetrachloride). This compound is usually the major trihalomethane found in chlorinated water.
