boiling point[edit]

Shouldn't that be "low boiling point" ? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 00:25, 24 February 2007 (UTC).

No. Its boiling point is high relative to other refrigerants. P Cottontail 06:57, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Use in production of illegal drugs[edit]

It appears that this chemical also has illegal uses, which could be useful to note. "Liquid Freon is used as a solvent for methamphetamine base extraction. It is most frequently used by Mexican National labs (Turkington, 2000)." -'8'03.pdf (talk) 19:30, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

Ozone depletion[edit]

The claim that it has the highest ODP of any refrigerant is incorrect. ODP is an arbitrary value that happens to use R11 as 1.0 reference. There are higher ODP refrigerants such as low-temperature refrigerant R13B1 which has an ODP of 10. The statement was unreferenced anyways.Cantaloupe2 (talk) 10:36, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

HVAC Rinsing Statement[edit]

The statement there regarding

"trichlorofluoromethane was sometimes used as a cleaning/rinsing agent for low pressure systems, often dumping the used and "dirty" liquid."

Is not entirely correct. R-11 has been used historically and even now to flush ALL hvac systems (whether low/high). It is illegal to use today, but people use it to flush R-22 and even high pressure R-410a systems.
