Octafluoropropane is a hydrophobic, lipophobic gas. It has a very low
solubility in water, and all the evidence suggests it is rapidly lost
from soil and sediment.
Studies on saturated perfluorocarbons, mostly looking at their use in
medical applications, in both animals and humans, have shown no sign
that they are metabolised in the body and consistently indicate that
they do not accumulate in the body. Tests on octafluoropropane itself
indicate that when injected into the blood (encapsulated in
microbubbles) it has a half-life in the human body of under 2 minutes.
Octafluoropropane will enter the atmosphere very quickly, and human
exposure will be restricted to contact with the gas and inhalation.
