The protocol covers over 200 individual substances with a high ozone-depleting potential, including chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), halons, carbon tetrachloride (CTC), 1,1,1-Trichloroethane (TCA), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), hydrobromofluorocarbons (HBFCs), bromochloromethane (BCM) and methyl bromide (MB), all of which are referred to as 'controlled substances'.
Parental exposures available in NOCCA-JEM include the following six individual solvents: benzene, toluene, perchloroethylene, methylene chloride, trichloroethylene, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
Huybrechts and co-workers [9] observed such behaviour during the pyrolysis of 1,1,1-trichloroethane in the presence and absence of added HCl.
Hydrodechlorination of 1,1,1-trichloroethane over silica supported palladium catalyst.
Dioxane is used as a stabilizer in chlorinated solvents, mainly for 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA), which stabilize the solvents by behaving as a lewis base and inhibiting the reactions of solvent with acids and metal salts that may degrade the properties of solvents.
Investigators at the scene discovered a large cache of toxic materials, including thousands of rounds of corroded ammunition, highly reactive lead-contaminated waste from shooting ranges, hundreds of pounds of decades-old gunpowder and military M6 cannon powder, and industrial solvents that contained 1,1,1-trichloroethane and tetrachloroethylene, chemicals that are listed as hazardous substances under federal law.
In the framework of Regulation 2037/2000 EC on substances that deplete the ozone layer, and in compliance with commitments made under the Montreal Protocol on these same products and the protection of the ozone layer, the EU has scheduled the gradual abandonment of the production and use of chlorofluorocarbons, other fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons, halons, carbon tetrachloride, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, hydrobromofluorocarbons and bromochloromethane.
Popescu and Ghosh (1999) used a laboratory apparatus to investigate the adsorption of toluene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and formaldehyde by a desiccant material.
The VOCs found in this survey were chloroform, methyl-tertiary butyl ether, trichloroethylene, isopropyl ether, dibromochloromethane, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and cis-1,2 dichloroethylene.
Pollutants also sink to the bottom of the tank, so ensuring that parts emerge thoroughly clean--unlike traditional cleaners, including 1,1,1-trichloroethane, which create a surface scum.
In the present study the effects of three chlorinated hydrocarbons (1,1-dichloroethane; 1,1,1-trichloroethane and 1,1,2,2-tetrachioroethane) on growth in plants are compared with the effects of the same chlorinated compounds on genetic endpoints in mice.
PUR-Flush 100, 200 and 300 are non-chlorinated, non-flammable (per DOT), non-carcinogenic, non-ozone depleting solvents designed to replace solvents such as methylene chloride, acetone, MED and 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
