Description

General description

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.

consists of two inseparable isomers (CF3)2CFCF2OCH3 and CF3(CF2)3OCH3 with almost identical properties

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.
