Applications

Chloroform is suitable for pesticide analysis, environmental and GC analysis. It is a commonly used laboratory solvent. It was previously used as an anesthetic. It is also used as a precursor to PTFE and refrigerants. Chloroform was used in the past as an extraction solvent for fats, oils and greases. It is useful for the rapid and simple release of periplasmic proteins. The mixture of guanidinium thiocyanate-phenol-chloroform plays an essential role in the RNA isolation process.

Notes

It is a stable and light sensitive chemical compound. Incompatible with metals and alkalies. Keep the material away from heat, sparks and flame and other sources of ignition. Store it in a cool dry well-ventilated area.
