How to Make Chloroform

2343 ratings | 412577 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named the "Haloform Reaction" because it produces a Haloform (a methane molecule where 3 of the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by a halogen).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.

Keeping reaction cool ups yield per vid. Any thoughts on cooling the acetone, perhaps with some dry ice?

Who but a rapist would want this information? You don't need it because soon the GOP/Supreme Court will legalize all forms of rape, and outlaw consensual homosexuality. Wait for it.

If you're dumb enough to have come here to find out how to make this for the wrong reason, your a dumb ass! Your already collecting evidence on yourself lol! I didn't search for this concoction, it came up when I was watching stories on GHB. The fact that the two come up together on suggested videos and GHB is known as a date rape drug kind of suggests on it's own what it's for!

Wow! That was so cool to see all the different steps you took, instead of using density to separate the mixture could you have used their specific heat and froze one of them?
Wtf is it used 4 i always saw it used 2 knock people out on tv
Now ima make it thanks
I wana try breathing it

how do you make dichloro methane and carbon tetrachloride from it?

The only legitimate use for this that I can see is for use when the sh!t hits the fan. (For use during end times).

Mr Chemist, you are a subhuman piece of garbage. This video puts you on the darkside of your brother man. To many people will be victims of chloroform abusers AND do you really think they will label their waste bottles? Go kill yourself asshole!!!

So I've seen 4 people do this reaction now 3 with acetone and 1 with MEK. In all cases, a good chunk of the chloroform is being lost as waste, dissolved in water (20 to 30 percent). Wouldn't it be pretty easy to fractionally distill the remaining chloroform from the 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.

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.
