Abstract : The recent development of fluorothene plastic now makes available a new material for absorption and scattering cells of superior chemical resistance. The advantages of this material over the fully fluorinated compound (Teflon) are optical transparency, availability of a chemically resistant sealing wax and the thermoplastic properties of the material which allow it to be welded. Raman and infrared spectra of many fluorine compounds that have been impossible to handle in the past may now be successfully studied.
