BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

Chlorodifluorobromomethane is a colorless gas or liquid under pressure.

Definition

ChEBI: A one-carbon compound that is methane in which the hydrogens have been replaced by two fluorines, a bromine, and a chlorine. Widely used in 'vapourising liquid'-type fire extinguishers, its use is now generally banned under the Montreal Protocol (ozone-dep eting substances), although it is still used in certain applications (e.g. aviation).

General Description

BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE is a colorless, nonflammable gas. BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE is mildly toxic by inhalation. BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE can asphyxiate by the displacement of air. Exposure of the container to prolonged heat or fire may cause BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE to rupture violently and rocket. BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE is used as a refrigerant gas.

Reactivity Profile

BROMOCHLORODIFLUOROMETHANE is chemically inert in many situations, but can react violently with strong reducing agents such as the very active metals and the active metals. Can react with strong oxidizing agents or weaker oxidizing agents under extremes of temperature.

Health Hazard

Vapors may cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning. Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground. Contact with gas or liquefied gas may cause burns, severe injury and/or frostbite. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.

Fire Hazard

Some may burn but none ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated. Ruptured cylinders may rocket.

Safety Profile

Mutation data reported. An asphyxiant. See also ARGON for description of inert gas asphyxiants. When heated to decomposition it emits very toxic fumes of Br-, Cl-, and F-

Potential Exposure

Used as a refrigerant and fire extinguishing agent.

Shipping

UN1974 Chlorodifluorobromomethane or Refrigerant gas R-12B1, Hazard Class: 2.2; Labels: 2.2- Nonflammable compressed gas. Cylinders must be transported in a secure upright position, in a well-ventilated truck. Protect cylinder and labels from physical damage. The owner of the compressed gas cylinder is the only entity allowed by federal law (49CFR) to transport and refill them. It is a violation of transportation regulations to refill compressed gas cylinders without the express written permission of the owner.

Incompatibilities

The liquefied gas poured into water may be violently explosive. This is due to the phase transition from superheated liquid to vapor. Chlorodifluorobromomethane is generally chemically inert; however, it can react violently with strong reducing agents such as hydrides and highly active metals. It will react with strong oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, epoxides strong oxidizing agents. It can also react with weak oxidizers under extreme temperatures.

Waste Disposal

Return refillable compressed gas cylinders to supplier.
