Perfluorotributylamine Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionPerfluorotributylamine (PFTBA) is a dense, moderately high-boiling liquid. It is the main component of Fluosol-43, an artificial blood substitute that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in cardiac angioplasty. PFTBA is also used as an ingredient in some refrigerants.
    But PFTBA has a downside: It is persistent in the atmosphere and a powerful greenhouse gas. In 2013, S. A. Mabury at the University of Toronto used IR spectroscopy data to calculate that PFTBA is the strongest global-warming potential of any compound detected in the atmosphere—7100 times greater than that of CO2.
  • Chemical Propertiesclear colourless liquid
  • UsesPerfluorotributylamine is used in electronic applications viz. liquid burn-in, testing and vapor phase soldering processes. It acts as an indicator fluid to check the leakage and heat transfer fluid for thermal shock testing. It is an active component in fluosol, which is a substitute for artificial blood and fluorinert coolant liquids. Further, it is used as a solvent for computer disc drive lubrication. In addition to this, it is used as a calibration chemical in gas chromatography.
    Perfluorotributylamine (PFTBA) is commonly used for the calibration of the mass axes of mass spectrometers, basically in those systems, which use electron ionization (EI). PFTBA may be used as a calibration standard for the gas chromatography-mass spectrometric determination of tramadol in human plasma samples and phthalate esters in water samples.
  • UsesPerfluorotributylamine acts as a filled liquid in incubator allowing stable maintenance of body temperature in adult rat and possible usage in clinical management of extremely premature infants.
  • DefinitionChEBI: An organofluorine compound that is tributylamine in which all the hydrogens have been replaced by fluorine atoms.
  • PrecautionsStore in a cool place. Incompatible with powdered metals and alkali metals.
