Chlorinated solvents are a large family of compounds which contain chlorine. They are generally formed by bonding of 1,2 or 3 carboned hydrocarbons and they are seperated into groups, depending on saturation levels. They do not efficiently dissolve in water and they have higher intensity than water.
Chlorinated solvents are very strong solvents. They are commonly used as solvents for dye thinners, pesticides, resins and glues. They are also raw material for many products that contain chlorine.
Generally, chlorinated solvents do not dissolve in water and they are toxic chemicals. As they have higher intensity than water, they cumulate in depths of water and they pose great threat for environment.
