Specifications

Description

Applications
Trifluoroethanol serves as a solvent and a raw material in organic chemistry and biology. TFE is a solvent of choice for hydrogen peroxide-mediated oxidations of sulfides. Trifluoroethanol acts as a protein denaturant. It is used in the manufacture of certain pharmaceuticals and drug substances. The drug fluromer, which is 2,2,2-trifluoro-1-vinyloxyethane, is the vinyl ether of trifluorethanol. It is an effective solvent for peptides and proteins, and used for NMR-based protein folding studies, and in the manufacture of nylon. As a source of the trifluoromethyl group, it is employed in several organic reactions, for example in Still-Gennari modification of Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reaction (HWE) reaction.

Solubility
Miscible with water, ethers, ketones, alcohols and chloroform.

Notes
Moisture sensitive.
