  1. At present, the material is being manufactured by Carbide and Carbon Chemicals Corporation at Oak Ridge, under the name of Fluorothene. Inquiries should be addressed to the Atomic Energy Commission, Oak Ridge, Tennessee.
  2. Known locally as fluorothene-W. This is partially polymerized trifluorochloroethylene, m.p. 70–90°C.
