Abstract:

Chlorotrifluoroethylene CTFE Oligomer is a nonflammable, saturated, hydrogen-free halocarbon oil with chain lengths of six to ten carbons. CTFE was seen to have a low degree of toxicity in acute toxicity tests. A subchronic study was conducted because CTFE is an excellent candidate hydraulic fluid. The objective of this electron microscopic investigation was to examine and compare the livers of male and female rats after inhalation exposure to CTFE for 90 days.
