General description

Tetradecafluorohexane in the gas phase reacts spontaneously with lithium amalgam, to give a solid and intimate mixture of lithium fluoride and elemental polymeric carbon with a small amount of superstoichiometric lithium.

Application

Tetradecafluorohexane has been used:
  • as a fluorocarbon organic solvent in the preparation of temperature-induced phase-separation solution
  • to investigate boiling heat transfer mechanisms
  • as a photosensitizer in fluorous biphasic singlet oxygenation
  • as a novel reaction medium for photooxidation reactions

Spectroscopically observing the translational and rotational motion of solute molecules in liquid solutions is typically impeded by their interactions with the solvent, which conceal spectral detail through linewidth broadening. Here we show that unique insights into solute dynamics can be...

A fluorocarbon and hydrocarbon organic solvent mixture is known as a temperature-induced phase-separation solution. When a mixed solution of tetradecafluorohexane as a fluorocarbon organic solvent and hexane as a hydrocarbon organic solvent (e.g., 71:29 volume ratio) was delivered in a...
