Reactive Group Datasheet

Fluorinated Organic Compounds

These compounds are generally not flammable; some are combustible, but usually only poorly.
These materials are chemically inert in many situations, but can react violently with strong reducing agents such as the very active metals and the alkali metals. They suffer oxidation with strong oxidizing agents and under extremes of temperature.
Generally low.
Other Characteristics
This group includes aliphatic hydrocarbons where some or all of the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by fluorine atoms. The presence of fluorine lowers the reactivity relative to unfluorinated compounds. All compounds are gases under standard conditions.
1,1,2-trichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane, 1,2-dichloro-1,1,2,3,3-pentafluoropropane. 1-chloro-1,1-difluoroethane, 1-chloro-1,1,2,2-tetrafluoroethane, 1-chloro-2,2,2-trifluoroethane, 1,1-dichloro-1,2,2-trifluoroethane, chlorotrifluoromethane, methyl fluoride.
