(klōr'ō-fōrm),
Formerly used by inhalation to produce general anesthesia; also used as a solvent.
Synonym(s): trichloromethane
[chlor(ine) + form(yl)]

chloroform

(klôr′ə-fôrm′)
n.
A clear, colorless, dense, sweet-smelling liquid, CHCl3, used in refrigerants, propellants, and resins, as a solvent, and sometimes as an anesthetic. Chloroform, once widely used in human and veterinary surgery, has generally been replaced by less toxic, more easily controlled agents.
tr.v. chloro·formed, chloro·forming, chloro·forms
1. To treat with chloroform to anesthetize, render unconscious, or kill.
