Description

Chloroform Liquid – Russia, Our technical grade chloroform liquid (trichloromethane) contains a trace of ethanol as a stabilizer. It is a colorless denser than water liquid with an ether like odor and a slightly sweet taste, Liquid Chloroform is a common laboratory solvent for alkaloids, fats, oils, waxes and resins and also used as a chemical immediate in the preparation of dyes, plastics and pesticides.

chloroform liquid

Chloroform Liquid – in 290kg steel drums,

Our grade of chloroform has the highest level of purity used as a precursor for hydro chlorofluorocarbon used basically in the production of refrigerant for residential air conditioners and commercial refrigeration and above mentioned applications.

chloroform exposure – Because of its hazardous nature, commercial chloroform is stabilized with ethanol or amylene, to prevent accidents although samples that have been recovered or dried do no not contain any stabilizer.

chloroform liquid

Due to the irritant and harmful nature of chloroform liquid, our agents and supplies are qualified and suitable for safe transport and delivery to our customers. It should only be handled in areas with good circulation, ideally with fume extraction and that is why we choose the best of our staff to handle our sales and distribution. Our storage facilities are the best with minimal light and required temperatures and away from miscible products.

Chloroform liquid (ours) is originally from Russia with a compound formula of CHCl3.·

It is a colorless liquid in appearance with a molar mass denser than water.

i.  Worldwide, chloroform is used in pesticide formulation and as a solvent for fats, oils, rubber, alkaloids, waxes, gutta-percha and resins

ii. It is used as a cleansing agent

iii. Used as a grain fumigant

iv. Used as a heat transfer medium in fire extinguishers

v. Chloroform liquid is commercially used to extract morphine from poppies and scopolamine from Datura plants. Further, chloroform containing deuterium (heavy hydrogen) CDCl3 is a common solvents used in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.

vi. Chloroform liquid was formally used as an anesthetic (Dr. Robert Mortimer Glover), as an ingredient in cough syrups and as a constituent of tobacco smoke.

vii. Applied like refrigeration fluid in grocery stores

viii.It is commonly used as a laboratory solvent because it is relatively unreactive, miscible with most organic fluids and conveniently volatile. It is also used as a solvent in pharmaceutical industry and for producing dyes.

ixIt can be used to bond pieces of acrylic glass (also known under the trade name Perspex and Plexiglas).

x. Used in the production of refrigerant for residential air conditioners and commercial refrigeration.

Additional information

Origin

Chloroform (Bulk)

Chloroform is originally from Russia with a compound formula of CHCl3.·

It is a colorless liquid in appearance with a molar mass denser than water.

It has a density of 1.564 g/cm3 of -20ºC, 1.489g/cm3 of 25ºC and 1.394g/cm3 of 60ºC

Chloroform has a melting point of -63.5ºC of -82.3oF; 209.7 K and a boiling point of 61.15ºC or 142.07ºC and it decomposes at 450ºC.

It is soluble in benzene Miscible in diethyl ether, oils, ligroin, alcohol, CCl4 and CS2. Its solubility in water is as follows 10.62 g/L (0ºC), 8.09 g/L (20ºC and 7.32g/L (60ºC).

It has acidity (pKa) of 15.7 (20ºC).

It does not undergo combustion (non-flammable) in air, although it will burn when mixed with more flammable substances.

Chloroform has been shown to exhibit antifoaming agent, anti-coagulant, depressant, analgesic and anti-fungal functions.
