The paper describes a determination of the basic properties of laboratory quantities of potential alternative compounds which may be used to replace chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons listed in the 'Montreal Protocol for Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer.' The property testing currently posed for investigation was designed to assist in the determination of applicability for replacements for CFCs and halons as refrigerants, fire extinguishants, solvents, or foam-blowing agents. The compounds chosen are currently being synthesized by aerosol fluorination, a process which is described in the paper. The actual chemical equations and experimental yields are included.
