    Abstract

    We are in the midst of a critical period in the history of industrial halogenated solvents, a history that dates back some 60 years. Accurate data on current annual use are not available to me, but it must exceed 2 million metric tons, certainly a strong measure of economic success, the ability to beat all competition based on performance, price, and, yes, safety—certainly safety from fire, the scourge of all industrial chemical operations. Furthermore, this has always been considered to have been achieved at low levels of acute toxicity.
