    Unfortunately, in high concentrations, carbon tetrachloride also turned out to damage the nervous system and internal organs. When sprayed on a fire, moreover, it turns into phosgene gas—an infamous chemical weapon used in World War I. Fire extinguishers stopped using carbon tetrachloride in the s, after these downsides were discovered. Carbon tetrachloride extinguishers were withdrawn in the s because of the chemical’s toxicity – exposure to high concentrations damages the nervous system and internal organs. Additionally, when used on a fire, the heat can convert CTC to phosgene gas, [7] formerly used as a chemical weapon.

Question: Carbon Tetrachloride, Once Widely Used In Fire Extinguishers And As A Dry Cleaning Fluid, Has Been Found To Cause Liver Damage To Those Exposed To Its Vapors Over Long Periods Of Time. If The Boiling Point Of A Solution Prepared By Dissolving An Unknown Amount Of Sulfur (S8, MW= G/mol) In G Of CCl4 Is Found To Be C, What Amount Of Sulfur.

    A stored-pressure fire extinguisher made by Amerex. A fire extinguisher is an active fire protection device used to extinguish or control small fires, often in emergency situations. It is not intended for use on an out-of-control fire, such as one which has reached the ceiling, endangers the user (i.e., no escape route, smoke, explosion hazard, etc.), or otherwise requires the expertise of a. Carbon tet (as it was affectionately known in the lab) also found its way into small fire extinguishers. A fine spray would be vaporised by the heat of the fire and would then put out the fire.
