A variety of hazardous wastes or hazardous constituents have been detected at the facility, including acetone, benzene, methyl ethyl ketone, 1,1-dichloroethane, 1,1-dichloroethene, 1,2-dichloroethene (cis), 1,4-dioxane, ethylbenzene, methylene chloride, tetrachloroethylene (PERC), toluene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, trichloroethene or trichloroethylene (TCE), vinyl chloride and xylenes.
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.
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.

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.
Mold Wiz external mold releases are proprietary complex polymeric blends containing no wax, silicone, metallic stearate, and no CFCs or 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
To displace the aqueous solution from soil particles, 150-g portions of the amended soils were weighed into 250-mL polypropylene centrifuge bottles (with sealing cap assemblies for high speed centrifuging), and centrifuged in the presence of an excess of 1,1,1-trichloroethane.
This (Army Research Laboratory) report concerns the substitution of alternative materials for 1,1,1-trichloroethane in commercial cleaning applications.
Over 100 different contaminants have been detected in Valley groundwater; the most common include trichloroethylene (TCE), a carcinogen, and 1,1,1-trichloroethane (TCA), which impairs the immune system and causes central nervous system depression.
