Octafluorocyclobutane Usage And Synthesis
General Description Octafluorocyclobutane is a colorless nonflammable gas. Octafluorocyclobutane may be harmful by asphyxiation. Exposure of the container to prolonged heat or fire can cause Octafluorocyclobutane to rupture violently and rocket. Octafluorocyclobutane is used to make other chemicals.
Reactivity Profile Octafluorocyclobutane is chemically inert in many situations, but can react violently with strong reducing agents such as the very active metals and the active metals. They suffer oxidation with strong oxidizing agents and under extremes of temperature.
Health Hazard Vapors may cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning. Vapors from liquefied gas are initially heavier than air and spread along ground. Contact with gas or liquefied gas may cause burns, severe injury and/or frostbite. Fire may produce irritating, corrosive and/or toxic gases.
Fire Hazard Some may burn but none ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated. Ruptured cylinders may rocket.
