Chloroform: famous anaesthetic
This compound was once widely used in medicine as an anaesthetic. It works because its vapours affect the central nervous system in a temporary manner, allowing the physician to perform procedures that would otherwise be very painful.
This property was discovered in 1847 by Scottish doctor James Simpson, after experimenting on himself with different compounds. Chloroform quickly became very popular during the 18th and 19th century in both Europe and United States, but concerns about fatal incidents of cardiac arrhythmia led to its replacement with ether.
Nevertheless, the use of chloroform as an incapacitating agent has become commonplace in most murder mysteries, almost bordering on cliché, as it seemed for a while that every crime fiction author opted for this method to describe the main crime in their book. In fact, in most cases, this description is inaccurate, as chloroform takes a few minutes to take action, and it’s not the almost instant effect as portrayed in many stories.
