Chloroform,A few more facts

Post  Thesci3141 on Tue Dec 28, 2010 8:44 pm

Chloroform is non-inflammable. It was first used as an anesthetic in1847. It was replaced by diethyl ether. It is very bad on the heart,25 to 30 times that of diethyl ether. The concentration of chloroform required to produce anesthesia is close to the amount that will stop the heart. Chloroform is easily made by distilling a calcium hypochlorite/H2O solution with acetone. In the reciever will be two layers,the bottom one being chloroform. I first done this when I was 10 years old. DANGER: NEVER add any flammable substance to dry calcium hypochlorite. You could be burned or killed. I got lucky and only went to the hospital with 3rd degree burns and shrapnel in my leg. Not from the above experiment,but one I made up in 7th grade. Be careful and GO BY THE BOOK!
