Dichloromethane is also known as methylene chloride and methylene dichloride, it is a clear, colourless liquid with a slightly sweet scent that is primarily used as an industrial solvent and also as a potent paint stripper and paint thinner. It has a role as a polar aprotic solvent, a carcinogenic agent and a refrigerant. It is a member of chloromethanes and a volatile organic compound. Dichloromethane is used as an extraction solvent in the preparation of decaffeinated coffee, hop extracts and spice oleoresins. In the electronics industry, the gas is used to produce printed circuit boards.
