Applications
Chloroform is a commonly used laboratory solvent. It was previously used as an anesthetic. It is also used as a precursor to PTFE and refrigerants. Chloroform was used in the past as an extraction solvent for fats, oils and greases. It is useful for the rapid and simple release of periplasmic proteins. The mixture of guanidinium thiocyanate-phenol-chloroform, plays an essential role in the RNA isolation process.
