Trichloroethyl 2018-10-29T17:08:43+03:30


Trichlorethylene is sucking. The substance is relatively non-volatile and remains in liquid state in hot weather. Its vapor pressure is 0.08atm, which indicates that this material evaporates to some extent. Its density is 1.47gr / ml and heavier than water. Trichloroethylene forms a biphasic system with water, due to the lightness of the water in the upper layer. Its high density is due to chlorine atoms. Because non-extractable hydrocarbons are lighter than water.

The solubility of organic compounds in water decreases with increasing number of carbon atoms. The solubility also decreases with increasing chlorine to hydrogen ratio. The molecule of trichlorotylene is small and, despite the high cl / H ratio, has a moderate solubility in water. 1.1 grams dissolved in one liter of water. It is dissolved in many organic liquids. It is easily absorbed into suspended organic particles in the water or sediments. Conversely, many chlorinated hydrocarbons do not accumulate in plant or animal tissue. The most widely used (TCE) is as an industrial solvent to remove grease from the surface of metals. Other uses include:

As a household solvent and commercial solvent

Extracting Producers of Food (Caffeine Extraction from Coffee)

Color Cleaner


As an anesthetic agent
