General description

consists of two inseparable isomers (CF3)2CFCF2OCH3 and CF3(CF2)3OCH3 with almost identical properties
Nonafluorobutyl methyl ether (Methyl Nonafluorobutyl Ether, MFE) is an alkyl- fluoroalkyl ether (AFE). AFE is widely employed as a nonflammable solvent. MFE is superior to conventional solvents due to its low viscosity and surface tension.

Application

Nonafluorobutyl methyl ether (Methyl Nonafluorobutyl Ether, MFE) may be used to compose mixed-solvent electrolytes. Flash point, conductivity and NMR spectra of these solvent mixtures have been investigated.
