How to Make Chloroform

1934 ratings | 365788 views
In this video, I react bleach and acetone via the haloform reaction to synthesize chloroform. Chloroform is a very useful solvent and reagent, and I'll be using it in upcoming videos. This reaction is aptly named the "Haloform Reaction" because it produces a Haloform (a methane molecule where 3 of the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by a halogen). This reaction doesn't give great yields, but the reactants are so cheap that it is definitely an economically viable way to produce chloroform. Disposing of chloroform: Chloroform hydrolyzes in basic conditions, so just let the chloroform sit in the bleach bottles for a couple of weeks, allowing the basic conditions to break down the chloroform. After a couple of weeks, there will be only a tiny amount of chloroform left, and you can flush this down the drain with excess water.

Chloroform is NOT flammable, though. Mono and dichloro methanes, yes very, tri and tetra, will not undergo combustion unless mixed with another solvent that is.

Why in the hell would you want to teach these freaks out there how to make freaking chloroform? Are you nuts? You should offer an email address for them to email for instructions then turn their asses in to the FBI.

I am pretty sure that chloroform isn't flammable just as dichloromethane and carbon tetrachloride are not flammable on their own.

Trichloromethane reacts with air to form: phosgene, dichloromethane, formyl chloride, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen chloride. None of which you want to be breathing. If you're interested in getting high I would recommend weed.

Ok stupid question but WTF would ya ever use chloroform for.
ViralTaco (18 days ago)
As a solvent or to make Teflon. You can use Deuterated chloroform for NMR spectroscopy. Which is pretty much the same molecule where the hydrogen is replaced with Deuterium.
