Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a halocarbon in which three hydrogen atoms are replaced with Chlorine in the Ethylene molecule. Industrially, it is known with different abbreviations including TCE, Trichlor, Trike, and Tricky. It is also sold under a variety of trade names such as Trimar and Trilene. It appears as a colorless, nonflammable liquid having a sweet odor and burning taste at room temperature. It is mostly used as a solvent to clean grease from metallic components. Although, Lab Grade chemicals possess reasonable purity but do not comply with any official standard for quality or purity like the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, or the FCC Grade. Our Lab Grade Trichloroethylene is recommended for educational institutes and research labs.
The chemical compound trichloroethylene is a halocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It is a clear non-flammable liquid with a sweet smell. It should not be confused with the similar 1,1,1-trichloroethane, which is commonly known as chlorothene. The IUPAC name is trichloroethene. Industrial abbreviations include TCE, trichlor, Trike, Tricky and tri. It has been sold under a variety of trade names. Under the trade names Trimar and Trilene, trichloroethylene was used as a volatile anesthetic and as an inhaled obstetrical analgesic in millions of patients.
