Description

General description

Perfluorononane is a common liquid perfluoro-n-alkane. It is a potent greenhouse gas and environment and health hazards posed by its toxic decomposition products have been evaluated. Perfluorononane is reported as an ideal oral contrast agent since it is biologically inert, immiscible with water, and also has a low viscosity and surface tension. Intramolecular electronic environment of perfluorononane using 13C and 19F NMR techniques in combination with theoretical calculations of molecular orbitals has been reported.

Application

Perfluorononane may be employed in the interface between active and buffer layer to improve the performance of polymer photovoltaic cells. It may be employed as selective and specific markers for monitoring the gastric emptying and gastrointestinal (GI) transit times in mice and humans by using 27Al and 19F nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).
