Many laboratories are engaged in research on the development of new fluids for use as refrigerants to replace the fully halogenated materials that are believed to contribute to atmospheric ozone depletion. An integral part of this effort is the chemical analysis of new fluids that are synthesized, prepared, and tested. This comprehensive book, which is divided into two parts, fills an important need in this vital chemical analysis protocol. The first part reviews the major chemical analysis methods that have been developed and used at NIST and in other laboratories. This review covers spectroscopic, chromatographic, and "wet" analytical methods, with treatment divided by qualitative identification, qualitative determinations, and chemical reaction screening. The second part contains a compilation of analytical information of the new fluids and their products. Physical properties, mass spectra, infrared spectra, ultraviolet spectra, nuclear magnetic resonance spectra, and gas chromatographic retention data are provided for each fluid or product.
