What is chloroform used for?



  1. 0 Votes

    The majority of chloroform produced in the United States is used to make HCFC-22. In the past, it has been used as an extraction solvent for fats, oils, and greases. It was used in fire extinguishers, as a spot remover at dry cleaners, and an anesthetic, but it is no longer used for these things. Chloroform is formed during the chlorination of water, and can be found in tap water.
