Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Approximately 75% can be repurified by distillation.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not readily reactive at room temperature. Soluble/ miscible
with solvents such as 1,2-trans-dichloroethylene and

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This is the method of choice. Incinerate in facilities
equipped to handle hydrogen fluoride byproduct, in the
presence of combustible products.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended as test substance is water insoluble.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Test substance is not intended for use by the public at
