Common name: Carbon tetrachloride
Short description: Carbon tetrachlooride (CCl4), also called tetrachloromethane, is a simple organic halogen compound.
Keyword: carcinogen
Keyword: fumigant
CSD refcode: CARBTC
Layman's explanation: Carbon tetrachloride was first prepared in 1839. It was discovered by German-born French scientist Henri Victor Regnault during his work with ether/chlorine reactions. Carbon tetrachloride is a clear, heavy, poisonous, nonflammable liquid with a strong ethereal odor. It is also fairly common as a colorless gas. Carbon tetrachloride is used for dry cleaning, degreasing metals, fumigating, manufacturing refrigerants and aerosol propellants, and is also used in fire extinguishers. CCl4 is a possible carcinogen; inhalation or ingestion can cause damage to the brain, liver, kidneys, and can even cause death. CCl4 also contributes to ozone layer depletion.
