  • Tetrachloroethylene, also known under its systematic name tetra chloroethene and as perchloroethylene, perchloroethene, perc, and PCE, is a  chlorocarbon with the formula Cl2C=CCl2.
  • It is a colourless liquid widely used for dry cleaning of fabrics, hence it is sometimes called "dry-cleaning fluid."
  • Perchloroethylene (PCE) is produced domestically by three processes.
  • Two of the processes involve the chlorination and oxychlorination of ethylene dichloride (EDC) or other chlorinated hydrocarbons having two carbon atoms.
  • Perchloroethylene and TCE are manufactured separately or as coproducts by the chlorination oroxychlorination process with the raw material ratios determining the proportions of PCE and TCE.
  • The effects of tetra chloro ethylene on human health come from cases of accidental or occupational exposures.
  • High exposures primarily affect the central nervous system although liver and kidney effects have also been reported.
  • Longer-term exposures to tetrachloroethylene have been reported to produce dizziness, headache, nausea and fatigue.
  • Epidemiological studies of workers in the dry-cleaning and laundry industry are inadequate to assess the carcinogenicity of tetrachloroethylene in
  • NETSB , strives to increase the use of new environmental pollution prevention technology by small business, resulting in measurable environmental and economic benefits.
  • A continuous soil column experiment was conducted to investigate reductive de chlorination of trichloroethylene (TCE) in soil system reductively manipulated by three types of reductants (Fe(II), dithionite, and Fe(II) + dithionite (combined treatment of Fe(II) and dithionite)).
  • The feasibility of micro-sized oil emulsion was investigated to remove trichloroethylene (TCE) and perchloroethylene (PCE), which are
    representative dense non-aqueous phase liquids, from soil and groundwater.
  • Micro-sized emulsion can remove DNAPLs due to its large surface area and hydrophobicity.
  • Most tetrachloroethylene is consumed as a solvent used in dry cleaning.
  • It is also used to degrease metal parts in the automotive and other metalworking industries.
  • It appears in a few consumer products including paint strippers and spot removers.
