An example is 1,1,1-trichloroethane (methyl chloroform) that had a single-pollutant odds ratio for an ASD diagnosis of 1.88 (95% CI: 1.04, 3.38), which was attenuated to 0.55 (95% CI: 0.22, 1.37) adjusting for benzidine, to 0.83 (95% CI: 0.32, 2.14) adjusting for mercury compounds, and to 1.23 (95% CI: 0.48, 3.17) adjusting for pentachloronitrobenzene.
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'.

Widely occurring VOCs, such as e.g., benzene, ethylbenzene, xylenes, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, trichloroethylene, tetra-chloroethylene, carbontetrachloride, chloroform, are toxic and/or carcinogenic substances [1-3].
Huybrechts and co-workers [9] observed such behaviour during the pyrolysis of 1,1,1-trichloroethane in the presence and absence of added HCl.

The chlorinated organic solvents such as trichloroethene (TCE), cis-1,2-dichloroethene (cis-1,2-DCE), 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA), and 1,2-dichloroethane (1,2-DCA) have been widely used for decades as a degreasing agent, a cleaning agent, and organic synthesis intermediates in chemical, pharmaceutical, electronic, tanning, printing, and other industries [1-3].
Fennelly and Roberts employed individual metals and several bimetals (Ni/Fe, Cu/Fe) to investigate the reductive degradation of 1,1,1-trichloroethane (1,1,1-TCA) [12]; this work proved that bimetals can not only boost the dechlorination reaction rate, but they can also exert a large influence on the types of final products.
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.
There was a slower phase-out (to zero by 2010) of other substances (halon 1211, 1301, 2402; CFCs 13, 111, 112, etc.) and some chemicals were given individual attention (Carbon tetrachloride; 1,1,1-trichloroethane).
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.
