Description & Characteristics

Perfluoromethylcyclopentane, C6F12, is a fully-fluorinated, odourless, colourless, non-volatile liquid with the following characteristics:

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

    Perfluoromethylcyclopentane is in tracing and tagging applications

    Safety, Handling and Storage

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