It is used as a GC reagent for detection of sterols at low concentration as flophemesyl derivatives, readily detected by electron capture. Chlorodimethyl(pentafluorophenyl)silane is an extremely sensitive derivatizing agent for the analysis of sterols and lower aliphatic alcohols by electron capture gas chromatography.
