Chlorotrifluoro Ethylene (CTFE)
Chlorotrifluoro Ethylene (CTFE, R1113, CFC 1113, Trifluorochloroethylene) is the organic compound with the formula CF2CFCl. The CTFE is colorless gas at normal temperature and poisonous, and the liquefied CTFE is colorless and transparent. It has extremely unstable chemical properties and is combustible. It is mainly applied to fluoroelastomer, fluorine paintings, chlorofluorocarbon oil, isoflurane, anesthetics for animals, pesticide intermediates, etc.
Chlorotrifluoroethylene is produced commercially by the dechlorination of 1,1,2-trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane with zincin methanol. In 2012, an estimated 1-10 million pounds were produced commercially in the United States.
