Chloroform  – when chlorine is used to disinfect water the by-product chloroform is formed.

A nonflammable colourless liquid with a pleasant smell and a slightly sweet taste, chloroform is used in a number of industrial processes in multiple industries; building, paper and board industries as well as pesticide and film production.

A substance that assists substances with dissolving, chloroform is often used as a solvent for lacquers, floor polishes, resins, adhesives, alkaloids, fats, oils and rubber as well as making Fluorocarbon22, a refrigerant.

Be cautious when using chloroform as it can be harmful to the eyes, skin, liver, kidneys, and nervous system as well as toxic when inhaled or swallowed. Constant exposure to chloroform may cause cancer.
