Carbon Tetrachloride (Carbon Tet for short, or Tetrachloromethane, named herself Katharin Martin) is a major character in Chemical Culture. She is mostly known for being a former firefighter and Chloroform's sister. She was created in 1820, making her one of the oldest Organochlorides, C. Tetrachloride is 10 years older than Chloroform and 19 years older than her brother Dichloromethane. C. Tetrachloride was executed for "crimes against the ozone layer" in 2010.

Personality and relationships[edit | edit source]

Carbon Tetrachloride had a dark sense of humour and would make jokes about controversial topics and eating people's livers. She was basically unable to feel anger and was very calm. Often seen calling people and other Chemicals "degenerates". She refuses to use the name "Tetrachloromethane" because she thinks that IUPAC is like "the Illuminati for Chemical folks". She does not want to be organic and her father Carbon Disulphide is responsible for this.

Carbon Tetrachloride pretended to be nice and protective towards humans when she was a doctor and a firefighter because she wanted to be a nice Chemical. It was, again, C. Disulphide who made her accept herself and stop "trying to be who she cannot be". C. Tetrachloride threatened everyone with stealing and eating their livers when they slightly disagreed with her. She faked being French, spoke French with a British accent and called herself random French names. She lied about being 8 years younger than Chloroform.

Tetrachloroethylene and Carbon Tetrachloride, 1860s

Her brothers (Dichloromethane and Chloromethane) meant nothing to her while Chloroform was her "whole world" due to being both her younger sister and her mother. C. Tetrachloride even threatened Chloromethane. She has been called "Carbon Tit(s)" by DCM. Chloroform calls her "Necatorina" (necator means "murderer" in Latin, how lovely). Chloroform defends her more than anyone else. Unlike Chloromethane, DCM and even Chloroform, she did not like Methanol, she called Methanol a "cougar" for DCM. She has called her brothers "degenerates". Despite being a former dry-cleaner and a pioneer in dry-cleaning, C. Tetrachloride despised dry-cleaners but she was kinder to Tetrachloroethylene whom she spent her early life with.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Carbon Tetrachloride is a tall woman with very long, straight dark blue hair and dark red eyes. She has a very pale skin and unusually muscular build for a Chemical. She smells sweeter than Chloroform and is proud of it.

C. Tetrachloride wore work-appropriate but sometimes kind of "revealing" clothes. Her uniform coat was red unlike her siblings' dark blue coats. Most of her clothes were taken from Chloroform's wardrobe and restyled to fit herself. She styled her hair into 4 braids, just like Chloroform has done for a longer time.

Early life and career[edit | edit source]

Caebon Tetrachloride was first appeared in 1820 and named "Protochloride of Carbon". She worked as an anaesthetist/doctor around the 1860s under the name "Chloride of Carbon", after seeing her sister Chloroform killing too many patients during anaesthesia. C. Tetrachloride was successful and stronger than her sister, she told Chloroform to quit anaesthesia several times for the sake of the patients' safety. Her work did not gain enough attention and eventually she left the field a short time later. Beginning in the 1920s to the 1940s, C. Tetrachloride also had another short but successful career in medicine which she rarely talks about.

C. Tetrachloride became a firefighter in 1910 and worked as one until the 1960s. She was forced to retire because she "accidentally" killed many humans during duty. She also had a short career in refrigeration like any other person in her family.

Carbon Tetrachloride has worked in textile and general cleaning industries under the name "Benzinoform" and opened her first dry-cleaner in the early 1910s. She was very successful in this industry and introduced Trichloroethylene and Tetrachloroethylene into dry-cleaning. Then C. Tetrachloride entirely retired from this industry in the 1960s. C. Tetrachloride also made lava lamps and sold them.

Later years, execution and legacy[edit | edit source]

Humans noticed Carbon Tetrachloride's dangerous homicidal pontential as early as the 1900s but no-one took any action since she had already gained humans' trust. She had killed many humans during duty and this lead to the US government retire her from all close-contact work with humans in 1970, this was "the beginning of the end" for her. Until 1986, C. Tetrachloride worked in agriculture together with her father C. Disulphide. In 1987, humans discovered that she had committed "crimes against the ozone layer", she was banned from doing any work after an order by humans. C. Tetrachloride survived the 1996 Halocarbon executions which her son refrigeration consultant Trichlorofluoromethane did not. Her and her other children Chlorotrifluoromethane and Dichlorodifluoromethane were only warned and retired.


Humans carried out another large-scale Halocarbon executions for the same "crimes against the ozone layer" reason in 2010. This order included those who were forgiven in the 1996 order and got warnings. Carbon Tetrachloride and her CFC children Chlorotrifluoromethane and Dichlorodifluoromethane were executed following this order.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

Even after her execution, there had been controversies involving C. Tetrachloride and the ozone layer. Humans stated that they "should have acted earlier" about Carbon Tetrachloride. She was idolised by many humans and Chemicals because of her hardwork and interesting history and properties. An online fandom grew nearly 10 years after the execution of C. Tetrachloride.
