Carbon tetrachloride is registered for use as a grain fumigant. This compound was formerly employed in dry cleaning and in fire extinguishers (for use on electrical fires), but these uses were discontinued when it was found that phosgene was generated by oxidation. Phosgene has recently also been identified as a metabolite of carbon tetrachloride.
