Trichloroethanes .
Chlorinated ethanes which are used extensively as industrial solvents. They have been utilized in numerous home-use products including spot remover preparations and inhalant decongestant sprays. These compounds cause central nervous system and cardiovascular depression and are hepatotoxic. Include 1,1,1- and 1,1,2-isomers. .

Trichloroethylene .
Trichloroethene .
Trielina .
Trilene .
Trichloride, Ethinyl .
Ethinyl Trichloride .
A highly volatile inhalation anesthetic used mainly in short surgical procedures where light anesthesia with good analgesia is required. It is also used as an industrial solvent. Prolonged exposure to high concentrations of the vapor can lead to cardiotoxicity and neurological impairment. .

Chloroform .
Trichloromethane .
A commonly used laboratory solvent. It was previously used as an anesthetic, but was banned from use in the U.S. due to its suspected carcinogenicity. .

Methoxychlor .
DMDT 6693 .
Metox .
Trichloroethane, Dianisyl .
Dianisyl Trichloroethane .
An insecticide. Methoxychlor has estrogenic effects in mammals, among other effects. .

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. .

Chloroethane .
A gas that condenses under slight pressure. Because of its low boiling point ethyl chloride sprayed on skin produces an intense cold by evaporation. Cold blocks nerve conduction. Ethyl chloride has been used in surgery but is primarily used to relieve local pain in sports medicine. .

Bromotrichloromethane .
Trichlorobromomethane .
A potent liver poison. In rats, bromotrichloromethane produces about three times the degree of liver microsomal lipid peroxidation as does carbon tetrachloride. .

Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane .
1,1,1-trichloro-2,2-di(4-chlorophenyl)ethane .
A polychlorinated pesticide that is resistant to destruction by light and oxidation. Its unusual stability has resulted in difficulties in residue removal from water, soil, and foodstuffs. This substance may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen: Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP-85-002, 1985). (From Merck Index, 11th ed) .
