Making Cholorform Like a Boss
what you need:
pure acetone (availible at any hardware store)
glassware (allows clear vision of solution inside)
i Wear protective gear like goggles, gloves, and so on to ensure
you are well protected. The instructions to ake chloroform are
listed in an bulleted list: Ti
1 Start by filling up a glass container with half a liter of bleach
2 Lower the temperature of the bleach solution by adding ice
into the container and allowing it to cool.
3 Pour 10 ml of the acetone (to maintain a ratio of I: 50,
one part acetone to fifty parts of bleach) into the container.
4 Add some more ice to keep the temperature low. Replacing the
cubes that have already melted will ensure this. The bleach must
be kept cool as otherwise it will emit fumes of bleach and chloroform.
5 Keep aside for 20 minutes to ensure complete reaction. In a while
clouding up can be seen with an increase in temperature.
6 Allow time for the reaction to settle. This will take about half an
hour, but if after this time also the solution does not appear to be
settling, a stir will help.
7 Once settled, you will see either be a white powder residue
a bubble at the bottom. This is chloroform.
8 Pour the solution out with care, ensuring that no powder or f’
bubble leaves the container.
9 Now the pure chloroform, which remains in the glass container,
can be extracted with a separation funnel.
