Perchloroethylene

Perchloroethylene is a chloro-carbon with the formula Cl2C-CCl2. It is a colorless liquid widely used for dry cleaning of fabrics, hence it is sometimes called "dry-cleaning fluid." It has a sweet odor detectable by most people.

Perchloroethylene is an excellent solvent for organic materials. It is volatile, highly stable, and nonflammable. For these reasons, it is widely used in dry cleaning. Usually as a mixture with other chloro-carbons, it is also used to degrease metal parts in the automotive industries. It is in a few consumer products including paint strippers and spot removers.
