In test animals Splenda produced swollen livers, (as do all chlorocarbon poisons) and also calcified the kidneys of test animals.
The new chlorocarbon, known as HCC-1230xa, is designed to enable the efficient production of the next generation refrigerant, HFO-1234yf, that has low global warming potential (GWP) and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP).
Total quantity or scope: The University of East Anglia is looking to purchase a versatile field-deployable GC-Time-of-Flight mass spectrometer (GC-ToF-MS) system for ultra-trace environmental air, water and soil analysis of volatile compounds (boiling point range -140 AC to 300 AC) such as halocarbons (including iodocarbons, bromocarbons, chlorocarbons, CFCs), sulphur gases (including dimethyl sulphide and carbonyl sulphide), oxygenated and nitrogenated hydrocarbons (including short-chain alcohols, aldehydes, and ketones, alkyl nitrates, and acetonitrile), persistent organic pollutants, primary, secondary and tertiary amines.
They also noted a potential market for carbon dioxide in dry cleaning, where it could replace harmful chlorocarbons, and as a refrigerant to replace materials more than 1,000 times as potent as greenhouse gases.
This spectrometer has already demonstrated detection of airborne chemicals such as chlorocarbons and explosives including TNT, nitroglycerin and plastic explosives at low levels.
Hydrocarbons and chlorocarbons may also be partially oxidized in this zone, resulting in emissions including oxy-PAHs and oxychloro-PAHs (Rubey WA et al.
However, under pressure to regulate the use of chlorocarbons, 1-BP has been used as a surrogate, which is encouraged by the lack of measures to define the exposure limits.
Waste streams that were tested contained at various times a variety of chlorinated materials, for example, vinyl, mixed plastics, salts (chloride) and chlorocarbons, resulting in chlorine feed concentrations ranging from 0.
