Synonyms: Perfluoropentane

CAS Number: 678-26-2

Description & Characteristics

Perfluoropentane, C5F12 is a fully-fluorinated, odourless, colourless liquid.

  • Compatibility with most construction materials
  • Excellent chemical and thermal stability
  • Non flammability
  • Practically non-toxic1
  • Safety, Handling and Storage

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