Chloroform analysis laboratory

As an industrialist you wish to analyze the chloroform present in your products

What is chloroform?

Chloroform (or trichloromethane) is a halogenated hydrocarbon. It materializes as a colorless, highly volatile liquid.

In the environment, chloroform has a tendency to escape into the atmosphere because of its high volatility and its low adsorption capacity. Its natural origins are mainly seawater and rock transformation.  

Chloroform is currently used :

  • In the manufacture of chlorofluorinated hydrocarbons (Teflon for example)
  • In the extraction of essential oils and alkaloids
  • In the extraction of antibiotics, hormones, nicotine, quinine, vitamins… in the pharmaceutical industry
  • As a solvent and purification agent in the plastics industry
  • As an anesthetic

Note that chloroform is registered in the register of chemical substances Reach, with a ban on the marketing of mixtures in concentrations equal to or greater than 0.1% by weight and is part of the list of substances banned in cosmetic products by Regulation (EC) 2009/1223 on these products.
