Chloroform (CHCL3), also known as trichloromethane, is a colorless,

non-flammable liquid, possessing vapor weight more than air. Chloroform possesses a sweet, ether like odor and is insoluble in water. Chloroform is mainly used to produce hydrochlorofluorocarbon-22 (HCFC-22) and Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) polymers. Increasing demand for HCFC’s for use in refrigerants and skyrocketing demand for fluoropolymers in the transportation, electrical electronics, medical, food processing etc. sectors will facilitate the growth of the global Chloroform market in the forecast period. In addition to its versatile industrial uses, Chloroform is also consumed as a solvent in pharma industries and as an anesthetic in medicinal procedures to relax from pain. Chloroform is commonly manufactured by the reaction of Methyl Chloride in the presence of chlorine and is produced as a coproduct with methylene chloride. Chloroform was initially produced by the chlorination of methane, producing hydrogen chloride as the by-product, thereby posing a major challenge among the producers. To resolve this issue, several companies across the globe have started conducting absorption of the released acid over chloromethanes and methyl chloride.
