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 .

Perfluorooctane, an oxygen carrier, is an alkane that is used as a solvent for dissolving gaseous solutes.

Application

Perfluorooctane may be used in chemical synthesis.
