CFC 113: A Unique Member of the Halogenated Solvent Family



Halogenated fluorocarbons form a unique class of materials. One member of this class, CFC 113, has found wide application as a solvent in the electronics, metal working, and aerospace industries. Because of concerns over possible ozone depletion by certain members of the fluorocarbon family, various alternatives are being evaluated. It has been found difficult, however, to find replacements with similar properties. In the short term the conservation and recycling of CFC 113 solvents offer the best opportunity of reducing its possible impact on the environment.
