How to Make Chloroform

1415 ratings | 317159 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named the "Haloform Reaction" because it produces a Haloform (a methane molecule where 3 of the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by a halogen).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.

i find it hilarious how many creepy indian guys are commenting on this video asking for additional instructions on how to purchase chloroform. not only did the instructions on how to make it fly over their head, they seem oblivious that they're posting on the internet with their real full names with their personal phone number. yeesh.

Hi I see you are working in your garage. You should use a fan to blow the fumes away from you. Just mild breeze will do. If the fumes of these chemicals are inhaled they cause cancer. A mask with activated charcoal - carbon filter would also be in order. Take care. Cancer sux.

James Bong (1 year ago)
Great video, very informative. However, I'm wondering why you distilled the chloroform instead of just filtering it out since I thought you removed the aqueous impurities by extraction and drying in calcium chloride?
Hey man, I just discovered your channel (through nilered) and I really enjoyed this video. I noticed you haven't made anything since, but I hope to see some new stuff soon (hopefully it's just the school year and during the summer we might see something new?). Subscribed, of course.

zwclose7 yea what about isopropyl alcohol can i use it instead of ethanor or methanol?
Lemtil (11 months ago)
Methanol has other names, methyl alcohol, and methyl hydrate. It's available at most hardware stores. NileRed has a video on making anhydrous ethanol, if you're worried about using azeotropic ethanol. But at the 1% addition of 97% ethanol you're looking at a possibly negligible water contamination(a couple thousandths of a percent, which is preferable to degeneration, and they're immiscible anyways).

Question, can you use anything else to stabilize it? And would the methanol be poisonous if the chloroform was used as a anesthetic?

So this would not be good to knock out my goats to ban them? We ban the boys as soon as there nuts drop I'm looking for a cheap easy way to help make this pain less for them. The vet tells me not to worry about it that they don't feel pain and I call BS on that. Let me know what your opinion is on how safe it would be for a 1 time uses but I would not be able to take it as far as you did I would not be able to dry it as you do.

it's not that hard actually. Just react indole-3-(ethylbromide) with diethanolamine. I'm working on a prep from wintergreen oil as the indole ethyl bromide is a precursor to strychnine via the varderwall process.

Thanks for your help. I want to make some to disolve PLA in hard to reach metal pieces. Before making it, just came to my mind that I may be stuck with it after usage. Abit of googling point out there is no safe way to dispose exept specialized companies. any tought?
Jean-François Payeur (1 year ago)
Sorry my chemistry class is so far Away Last question You add 87.7g of acetone Volumic Mass is 0.79 Total 111ml Aprox What I see in the video ... Total is ok :) Acetone Molar Mass 58g/Mol = 87.7 / 58 = 1.5mol You said you base this on a 3 Mol of acetone because2 recipient ... Total is ok :) But now , we should have 3 time this in NaClO to balence reaction Plus a litle more 3 x 1.5mol = 4.5mol molar mass of NaClO is 74.4 74.4x4.5 = 337g At 8.25 % by wt . this is 4kg of Bleach ... I must do something wrong !
Jean-François Payeur (1 year ago)
TheChemistryShack ho yes fair enought. I wasnt that wrong
TheChemistryShack (1 year ago)
A gallon of water (specfic gravity ~ 1) is 3.79 kg, so a gallon of bleach, with a specific gravity closer to 1.1, should easily be enough
Jean-François Payeur (1 year ago)
1:00 Audio , You are using 2 liters of Bleach ?
TheChemistryShack (1 year ago)
Should be 2 gallons! Thank you! Suprisingly you're the first to notice!
Jean-François Payeur (1 year ago)
Thanks a lot for posting ! Litle question 1:00 Jug are 3.57L each 1:49 Writen 7.28L of Bleach (2jugs minus 150 ml from each) 3.57L x 2 = 7.14L ... 3.57L - 150ml =3.42L 3.42L * 2 = 6.84L I dont find the way to sum up to your 7.28L comment
TheChemistryShack (1 year ago)
Each jug is a gallon. 1 gal = 3.79 L 3.79 (2) = 7.58 7.58 - (0.15)(2) = 7.28 L

I've been really busy with school and haven't had hardly any time to film or edit videos. I do have one that I am editing though and another reactionI am working on (it seems to be pretty finicky though and I've had several tries without success).
