Applications
Chloroform is a common laboratory reagent favored for use as a solvent due to the compounds relative unreactivity and miscibility with most organic compounds. Chloroform is also used in organic synthesis as a source for CCl2. In the swine tracheal smooth muscle, chloroform has been demonstrated to directly and in a concentration dependent manner induce contractions. It has been observed that Chloroform can release Ca2+ from ryanodine sensitive receptors in chloroform-induced contraction in swine tracheal smooth muscle. At concentrations of 100 and 250 ppm in mouse splenocyte, basal proliferation was increased yet a decrease in circulating neutrophils was documented.

Solubility
Soluble in water at 20°C 8 g/L.

Notes
Stabilized with approx. 50 ppm amylene
