Abstract: Because fluorocarbons can dissolve relatively large quantities of oxygen and carbon dioxide, there is considerable interest in utilizing them to develop new methods of extracorporael circulation, artificial red blood cells, and liquid breathing techniques. A method for the assay of fluorocarbon in blood is presented. The fluorocarbon is extracted from the blood with toluene, and fluoride is released from the fluorocarbon in the toluene extract by reaction with sodium biphenyl. The inorganic fluoride is then ex…
