Chloroform is an organic compound with molecular formula CHCl3 and belongs to the group of compounds known as trihalomethanes. It is available in the form of a clear colorless liquid with a typical odor. It is usually nonflammable, though it burns under extreme conditions. Chloroform is generally produced by the action of bleaching powder on alcohol or on acetone. In this process, the bleaching powder acts partially as an oxidizing agent and partially as a chlorinating agent. In the first stage, alcohol is converted into chloral, CCl3CHO. The compound is further decomposed into chloroform and calcium formate with the help of calcium hydroxide. Further the chloroform obtained is purified by washing and rectification. It can also be prepared from chlorination of methane.
