Atmospheric lifetime and global warming potential of a perfluoropolyether


, : Atmospheric lifetime and global warming potential of a perfluoropolyether. Environmental Science & Technology 40(7): 2242-2246

Perfluoropolyethers (PFPEs) are a family of perfluorinated fluids used mainly in industrial applications. Lower molecular weight commercial PFPE fractions have boiling points ranging between 55 and 270 degrees C, and have the potential to escape into the atmosphere. To improve our understanding of the atmospheric chemistry of PFPEs, a distilled fraction of a commercial mixture containing perfluoropolymethylisopropyl ethers (PFPMIEs) was introduced into an atmospheric chamber system.
