Title Comparative toxicity of chlorinated and fluorinated methane and ethane derivatives
Original title Sravnitel'naja toksičnost' hlorirovannyh i ftorirovannyh proizvodnyh gruppy metana i ėtana [in Russian]

Abstract Studies of Freon 22, 141 and 113 in mice. Introduction of a fluorine atom into the molecule markedly reduces the toxicity of these hydrocarbons, and modifies their effect on the organism, especially on long-term exposure to low concentrations. It is recommended that the highly toxic chlorinated compounds be replaced by fluorinated or chlorofluorinated ones. Comparative toxicity data on chlorinated, chlorofluorinated and fluorinated hydrocarbons.
