Businesses are working to make transitions to compounds with more environmental protection while continuing the important attributes contained in fluorocarbons
such as energy efficiency, low toxicity, and non-flammability," Stirpe said.
In addition, fluorocarbons
are mostly nonflammable and have a low order of toxicity, which makes them significantly safer in use than alternatives such as hydrocarbons and ammonia that are either extremely flammable or highly toxic.
Made of a lipid or albumin shell, the bubbles are filled with fluorocarbons
that the body naturally expels through the lungs.
Research into the use of fluorocarbon
gases in ultrasound contrast agents is increasing and it is gratifying that the United States Patent Office continues to recognize SONUS' pioneering work efforts in this area," added Dr.
Specialty Materials, headquartered in Morristown, New Jersey, is a US $4 billion strategic business group of Honeywell that serves as a world leader in the production of nylon, polyester, polyethylene, fluorocarbons
, caprolactam, electronic materials and specialty chemicals.
In reaction to the world-recognized detriments of CFC's, or freons, Saab will soon be phasing out its use of freons (R-12) and changing over to a refrigerant void of chlorinated fluorocarbons
, well ahead of legislation which will require phase-out.
has announced the promotion of Jeff Lewis to business manager of the company's Fluorocarbon
The company's fluorocarbon
products consist primarily of HCFC-141b and the newly developed HFC-245fa.
While regulations and consumer concerns have reduced demand for some fluorine-based products, particularly fluorocarbons
, they have also opened up opportunities for products such as newer fluorocarbons
with low global warming potential.
developed moisturecurable silicone fluorocarbons
by reacting oxamido ester-terminated silicones and fluorocarbon
amines with moisture-curable groups.
Until now, says fluoride consultant Ebnesajjad, the only sources of information about fluoropolymers and fluorocarbons
have been snippets here and there in studies of other matters, and brochures from commercial manufacturers.
Ziaie has tested prototypes with liquids called fluorocarbons
, which are used as refrigerants and also in semiconductor manufacturing.
