Chloromethane is a chemical compound of the group of organic compounds called haloalkanes. It was once widely used as a refrigerant. Due to concerns about its toxicity, it is no longer present in consumer products. Chloromethane is the most abundant organohalogen, anthropogenic or natural, in the atmosphere. Large amounts of chloromethane are produced naturally in the oceans by the action of sunlight on biomass and chlorine in sea foam. However, all chloromethane that is used in industry is produced synthetically.

Methyl chloride is used mainly in the production of silicones where it is used to make methylate silicon. It is also used in the production of agricultural chemicals, methyl cellulose, quaternary amines, and butyl rubber and for miscellaneous uses including tetramethyl lead. It is also used in a variety of other fields: as an extractant for greases oils and resins, as a propellant and blowing agent in polystyrene foam production, as a local anesthetic, as an intermediate in drug manufacturing, as a catalyst carrier in low-temperature polymerization, as a fluid for thermometric and thermostatic equipment, and as a herbicide.

India produces almost a million tones, which is a bit more than the existing capacity. The entire demand in the industry is met by the local production. GACL (Gujarat Alkali's and Chemicals Limited) is one of the industry leaders in the world. With rapidly growing demand, the industry is growing at a fast pace.
