Chloroform was discovered in 1831 by a French chemist, Soubeiran, and independently by the American, Samuel Guthrie of Sachett's Harbour, in the State of New York (Duncum, 1947). Soubeiran obtained impure chloroform, which he provisionally called " bichloric ether ", by distilling a mixture of chloride of lime and alcohol. Liebig, in the following year, obtained a purer chloroform, which he named "liquid chloride of carbon", by a similar process. It was not until 1834 that Dumas succeeded in obtaining and correctly analysing pure chloroform and it was he who first gave it that name.
