Simpson, M.D. Edin. 1847. Chloroform is one of many substances that possess similar properties, only differing in degree. Hydrogen and carbon form their base, and this may exist either alone or united with a third element, and thus form a ternary compound. They all possess in a greater or less degree anaesthetic properties; they all seem to influence the nervo...
