General description

Heptafluorobutyric anhydride (HFB) is a derivatizing reagent. It provides facile and sensitive way for detecting and elucidating structure of numerous alkyl-chain homologs.

Application

Learn more in the Product Information
GC derivatizing agent used to prepare volatile derivatives of amino acids and other biologically active compounds.
HFB was used as derivatizing agent in analysing platelet-activating factor using GC-MS.
Suitable for the derivatization of aldosterone, digoxin, digitoxin and metabolites, estradiol, postaglandins F and F2α, 3-oxo-Δ4-steroids, and testosterone.

Packaging

Derivatization reagent used in a GC-MS analysis of stereoisomer content of synthetic peptides.

Other Notes

Reagent for heptafluorobutyrate, 3-enol heptafluorobutyrate, 17-heptafluorobutyrate, heptafluorobutyrate and heptafluorobutyryl.
