General description

Chloroform is a colorless, volatile chlorinated organic solvent whose vapors have a narcotic effect. It is susceptible to degradation with time, which can be suppressed by adding amylene as a stabilizer. Amylene acts as a scavenger of free radicals formed by chloroform decomposition. This solvent meets ACS specifications and can be used for processes requiring strict quality conditions such as analytical testing.

application

Chloroform may be used in the following processes:
  • Synthesis of colloidal hydrophobic CdSe core nanocrystals (quantum dots).
  • Preparing phospholipid solutions.
  • As a solvent in the photolysis reaction of ruthenium complexes.
  • Solvent for recrystallization.
  • Reference compound to detect the presence of chloroform in Tobacco smokes.
  • Extractant in solvent extraction process.
