Original title Ein neues Lösemittel für die Chemischreinigung [in German]
Bibliographic information Oct. 1973, Vol.23, No.10, p.309-315. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract Presents a fluorinated hydrocarbon (FKW11, Dional, CCl3F) with a relatively low cost price and greater cleansing efficiency than trichloro-trifluoroethane (FKW 113). Its physical properties are given and compared with those of other solvents. Threshold limit value is fixed at 1,000 ppm; experimental studies did not reveal any organic disorder. Olfactory threshold and narcotic effects.
