Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Diss Factsheets

Administrative data

Type of information:
migrated information: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: While we believe the data to be good, no read across has to be considered 100% certain.

Data source

Reference Type:
other company data

Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The result is base on years of experience of handling materials of this type (i.e., saturated perfluorocarbons).
GLP compliance:

Test material

Constituent 1
Reference substance name:
Automatically generated during migration to IUCLID 6, no data available
Automatically generated during migration to IUCLID 6, no data available
Details on test material:
Results bases on like-materials

Results and discussion

Preliminary study:
All testing has shown that saturated perfluorocarbons, such as octafluoropropane, are extremely stable and will not undergo hydrolysis
Transformation products:
Dissipation DT50 of parent compound
Remarks on result:
hydrolytically stable based on preliminary test

Any other information on results incl. tables

Saturated perfluorocarbons are extremely stable compounds, with strong carbon-fluorine and carbon-carbon bonds (no other bonds are present). They are resistent to a vast range of chemicals, including stong acids and bases. We can say with certainty that they do not hydrolyse.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Not suspectible to hydrolyse at all.
Executive summary:

Not suspectible to hydrolyse at all.
