1,1,2-Trichloroethene is a chlorinated hydrocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent. It was used as a volatile anesthetic and as an inhaled obstetrical analgesic in millions of patients. Trichloroethylene's major use was to extract vegetable oils from plant materials such as soy, coconut, and palm. Other uses in the food industry included coffee decaffeination and the preparation of flavoring extracts from hops and spices. It has also been used as a dry cleaning solvent. It is also used in the manufacture of a range of fluorocarbon refrigerants.
