    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for trichloromethane chloroform intended for use as fluorocarbon feedstock. The fluorocarbon feedstock grade chloroform shall have a clear appearance, free of sediments and suspended matters. Tests shall be conducted to determine conformance to the following properties: water content, non-volatile residue content, color in the platinum-cobalt scale, free halogen content, acidity as HCl, dichloroethane content, carbon tetrachloride content, methylene chloride content, dichloroethylene content, and wt% of the assay. Products shall be packaged and labeled in accordance with DOT regulations, state and local regulations, and OSHA regulations.
