 Synonyms & Historicals
Methylene Chloride .
Solaesthin .
Bichloride, Methylene .
Chloride, Methylene .
Dichloride, Methylene .
Dichloromethane .
Methylene Bichloride .
Methylene Dichloride .
A chlorinated hydrocarbon that has been used as an inhalation anesthetic and acts as a narcotic in high concentrations. Its primary use is as a solvent in manufacturing and food technology. .
Ethylene Dichlorides .
Dichlorides, Ethylene .
Dichloroethanes .
Toxic, chlorinated, saturated hydrocarbons. Include both the 1,1- and 1,2-dichloro isomers. The latter is considerably more toxic. It has a sweet taste, ethereal odor and has been used as a fumigant and intoxicant among sniffers. Has many household and industrial uses. .
Dichloroethylenes .
Chlorides, Vinylidene .
Vinylidene Chlorides .
Toxic chlorinated unsaturated hydrocarbons. Include both the 1,1- and 1,2-dichloro isomers. Both isomers are toxic, but 1,1-dichloroethylene is the more potent CNS depressant and hepatotoxin. It is used in the manufacture of thermoplastic polymers. .
Methyl Chloride .
Chloromethane .
Chloride, Methyl .
A hydrocarbon used as an industrial solvent. It has been used as an aerosal propellent, as a refrigerant and as a local anesthetic. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 31st ed, p1403) .
