Additional information

There are no data available for Tetraethylammonium perfluorobutanesulfonate.

Studies with potassium perfluorobutane sulfonate were cited in the Existing Chemical Hazard Assessment Report by the Australian Government, Department of Health and Ageing, NICNAS, November 2005.

PFBS (potassium perfluorobutane sulfonate) is rapidly excreted in animals (monkeys) by the kidneys with up to 87% excreted in the urine within 24 hours post dosing. No difference is observed between male and female animals.

Studies show PFBS is highly bound to human albumin with indications of a saturated binding to albumin in serum and negligible binding to the other liver-manufactured proteins gamma globulin, alpha globulin, fibrinogen, alpha-2-macroglobulin, transferrin and beta lipoproteins.
