This report reviews the potential environmental hazard from the commercial use of large quantities of saturated, one and two carbon fluorocarbon compounds which are used for the most part as aerosol propellants, refrigerants, solvents, foaming agents, and fire extinguishing agents. The following seven compounds were of major interest: trichlorofluoromethane, dichlorodifluoromethane, chlorodifluoromethane, trichlorotrifluoroethane, dichlorotetrafluoroethane, chloropenafluoroethane, and bromotrifluoromethane. Information on physical and chemical properties, production methods and quantities, commercial uses and factors affecting environmental contamination as well as information related to health and biological effects are reviewed. Portions of this document are not fully legible.
