Abstract
Liquids can be flammable, combustible or can be neither flammable nor combustible liquids. Liquids with flash points below 100 F, 37.8 degree Celsius are flammable liquids. Liquids with flash points at or above 100°F, 37.8 degree Celsius are known to be combustible liquids. The lower the flash point is the higher the flammability of the liquid. Some solutions and liquids can conduct an electrical current by producing ions. Solutions are ether electrolytes or non-electrolytes. Electrolyte solutions can conduct electrical current. On the contrary to electrolytes, non-electrolytes don’t conduct an electrical current as they don’t dissociate into ions in solution. A non-halogenated compound is a compound that doesn’t contain a halogen element in their composition. This research is aimed to find a commercially available liquids and solutions that are non- halogenated, non-combustible, are liquids or in liquid-vapor equilibrium at ambient conditions, have a normal boiling point of ≥80°C, and aren’t electrically conductive, and to determine whether some suggested chemical compounds would meet the criterion: chloroform, carbon tetrachloride, bromine, mercury, and 100% concentrated sulfuric acid. Possible classes of compounds that meets the criterion requested are inorganic compounds including acids, bases, and salts, organic compounds including hydrocarbons, alcohols, esters, amines, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, carbohydrates, amino acids and proteins, and lipids. Most inorganic solvents and soluble inorganic compounds are electrically conductive, and most of classes of organic solvents and organic compounds are either flammable or combustible. It was found that most of the suggested chemical compounds don’t meet the criterion, and some chemical compounds meeting the criterion requested were identified.
