Saturated perfluorocarbons, such as octafluoropropane, are extremely
stable to acids and bases, to oxidisers and reducers, and to high
temperatures. We can say with confidence that biodegradation will be
negliable in all conditions.
Furthermore, octafluoropropane is a gas, boiling at -37°C, and will
quickly disappear from water and soil. This also makes testing
considerably more difficult. We therefore consider environmental
tersting to be unnecessary.
The attached document offers more details.
