Synonyms: Perfluoro-2-methylpentane

CAS Number : 355-04-4

Description & Characteristics

Perfluoro-2-methylpentane, C6F14, is a fully-fluorinated, odourless, colourless liquid with the following characteristics:

  • Compatibility with most construction materials
  • Excellent chemical and thermal stability
  • Non flammability
  • Practically non-toxic1
  • Applications

    Perfluoro-2-methylpentane finds many applications as a fluid for use in the electronics industries for testing and direct contact / submersion cooling, as a heat transfer fluid in organic Rankine engines as well as in rigid foam blowing and as a tracer and taggant.

    Safety, Handling and Storage

    Although Perfluoro-2-methylpentane is considered biologically and chemically inert, good laboratory practice should be observed when handling.  Perfluoro-2-methylpentane has an indefinite shelf life if properly stored in its original sealed container.  Safety data sheets are available on request.
