Abstract
Trichloroethane and trichloroethylene are widely used solvents that are ingredients in many products, including typewriter correction fluid ("white-out"), color film cleaners, insecticides, spot removers, fabric-cleaning solutions, adhesives, and paint removers. They are used extensively in industry as degreasers. Trichloroethane is available in two isomeric forms, 1,1,2- and 1,1,1-, with the latter (also known as methyl chloroform) being the more common. Tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethylene) is another related solvent that is used widely in the dry cleaning industry.
