Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a colorless, volatile organic compound that has been used in industrial and commercial settings. 

It has a sweet odor.

Commonly used as a solvent in industries such as metal cleaning, degreasing, and as a spot remover in dry cleaning.

However, the use of trichloroethylene has diminished due to concerns about its potential health effects. 

Studies have linked occupational exposure to TCE with various health risks, including liver toxicity, kidney damage, neurological effects, immune system disorders, and an increased risk of certain cancers, such as kidney and liver cancer.

It is associated with a higher risk of Parkinson’s disease.
