Methyl chloride, also called chloromethane, mainly is used as a refrigerant. It’s known, that methyl chloride permeates through human epidermis when exposed at high atmospheric concentrations within relatively short timeframes. Recently published article has shown that chlorinated methyl group could be formed in humans, that might be an important target compound in future medical diagnostic programs.
