Pentafluoropropionic anhydride act as a derivatising agent of amines and alcohols. It is used in the in preparation of halogenated derivatives of phenolic acids, required for determination of some biologically important acids in cerebrospinal fluid, as derivatization reagent in detection of 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline and 1-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline as endogenous amines from non-treated rat brain by GC-multiple ion detection and in simultaneous determination of the major metabolites of dopamine in rat striatum by gas-liquid chromatography.


Store at room temperature. Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.
