Hi, the term i think your looking for is "Chlorophyll" which makes leaf green in color. My dear redphile, "Chloroform" is a chemical substance. its actually a solvent of plastic, and i remember this thing makes you sleepy when inhale too much. i remember in my biology lab we used this to make the frog sleep before we disected it.
