Halomethane
Halomethane
Halomethane
compounds are derivatives of methane (CH4) with one or more of the hydrogen atoms replaced with halogen atoms (F, Cl, Br, or I). Halomethanes are both naturally occurring, especially in marine environments, and human-made, most notably as refrigerants, solvents, propellants, and fumigants. Many, including the chlorofluorocarbons, have attracted wide attention because they become active when exposed to ultraviolet light found at high altitudes and destroy the Earth's protective ozone layer.Contents1 Structure and properties 2 Production2.1 Industrial routes 2.2 In nature3 Classes of compounds3.1 ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 34-1992 3.2 Hydrofluoro compounds (HFC) 3.3 Overview of principal halomethanes4 Applications4.1 Solvents 4.2 Propellants 4.3 Fire extinguishing 4.4 Chemical building blocks5 Safety 6 See also 7 References 8 External linksStructure and properties[edit] Like methane itself, halomethanes are tetrahedral molecules

Laminated Glass
Laminated glass
Laminated glass
is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic "spider web" cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass. In the case of the EVA, the thermoset EVA, offers a complete bounding (cross-linking) with the material whether it is glass, polycarbonate, PET, or other types products. Laminated glass

is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall if shattered and also for architectural applications
