General description

Perfluorooctane is a polyfluoroalkyl substance. Perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA), a 6-carbon perfluoroalkyl is an alternate of perfluorooctane. Phase behavior of semifluorinated n-alkanes in perfluorooctane has been studied.

Application

Perfluorooctane may be used in chemical synthesis.

Strong non-covalent interactions such as biotin-avidin affinity play critical roles in protein/peptide purification. A new type of 'fluorous' (fluorinated alkyl) affinity approach has gained popularity due especially to its low level of non-specific binding to proteins/peptides. We have developed a...

Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoate (PFOA) are anthropogenic compounds manufactured since the 1950s and are distributed worldwide. Now, the pollutants are being challenged by entering into the brain and the toxic effect on the central nervous system due to calcium...

Perfluorohexanoic acid (PFHxA), a 6-carbon perfluoroalkyl (C6; CAS # 307-24-4), has been proposed as a replacement for the commonly used 8-carbon perfluoroalkyls: perfluorooctanoic acid and perfluorooctane sulfonate. PFHxA is not currently a commercial product but rather the ultimate degradation product...
