carbon tetrachloride

Synonyms: "tetrachloromethane", "carbona", "tetrasol", "carbon chloride", "perchloromethane", "vermoestricid", "benzinoform", "flukoids"

Source: carbon tetrachloride is found in air, water and soil. It was used in the production of refrigeration fluid and propellants for aerosol cans, as a pesticide, as a cleaning fluid and degreasing agent, in fire extinguishers, and in spot removers. Because of its harmful effects, these uses are now banned and it is only used in some industrial applications.
