There are 129 chemical datasheets assigned to this reactive group.

What are reactive groups?

Reactive groups are categories of chemicals that typically react in similar ways because they are similar in their chemical structure. Each substance with a chemical datasheet has been assigned to one or more reactive groups, and CAMEO Chemicals uses the reactive group assignments to make its reactivity predictions. More info about reactivity predictions...

If you can't find a chemical in the database--but you know what reactive group it belongs in--you can add the reactive group to MyChemicals instead in order to see the reactivity predictions.

Flammability
These compounds are generally not flammable; some are combustible, but usually only poorly.
Reactivity
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.
Toxicity
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This group includes aliphatic hydrocarbons where some or all of the hydrogen atoms have been replaced by fluorine atoms.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.
Examples
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.

The predicted hazards and gas byproducts for each reactive group pair will be displayed, as well as documentation and references that were used to make the reactivity predictions.
