The rate of duty will be 4 percent ad valorem.

The applicable subheading for 1,1-Diiodethane (CAS # 594- 02-5) will be 2903.30.2050, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other fluorinated, brominated or iodinated derivatives of acyclic hydrocarbons. The rate of duty will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.
