Specific Measurements:

CCl3F (trichlorofluoromethane, CFC-11) (mole_fraction_of_cfc11_in_air): Mole fraction is used in the construction mole_fraction_of_X_in_Y, where X is a material constituent of Y. The chemical formula of CFC11 is CFCl3. The IUPAC name for CFC11 is trichloro-fluoro-methane.

C2Cl3F3 (1,1,2-trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane, CFC-113) (mole_fraction_of_cfc113_in_air): Mole fraction is used in the construction mole_fraction_of_X_in_Y, where X is a material constituent of Y. The chemical formula of CFC113 is CCl2FCClF2. The IUPAC name for CFC113 is 1,1,2-trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoro-ethane.

CCl2F2 (dichlorodifluoromethane, CFC-12) (mole_fraction_of_cfc12_in_air): Mole fraction is used in the construction mole_fraction_of_X_in_Y, where X is a material constituent of Y. The chemical formula of CFC12 is CF2Cl2. The IUPAC name for CFC12 is dichloro-difluoro-methane.
