Hi sir. How could we test the purity of chloroform?

Asked by GAYATHRI R | 13th Dec, 2013, 07:41: PM

Expert Answer:

Chloroform should have a specific gravity of from 1.491 to 1.525, absolutely transparent and colorless, neutral to test paper, non-irritating when inhaled, and should evaporate entirely, leaving no residue or smell on a glass surface. Pure chloroform has boiling point 61-620C.
