Abstract

Fluorocarbons have a very high solubility for oxygen and this was very dramatically shown by Clark and Gollan (1966), when they were able to demonstrate survival of mice completely immersed in these liquids for extended periods of time. The animals were able to obtain sufficient oxygen by respiring the liquid and after removal showed no apparent ill effects from the experience.
