Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

As TFAH readily decomposes, the study is technically not feasible. Data on the hydrolysis product TFA, which is the actual species present in the environment, is considered to be relevant.

An experimental GLP study was conducted, that cannot be related to the EC/OECD guidelines, but is nevertheless acceptable. Visual estimation indicates high solubility (> 10 g/mL) of TFA in ISO water (250 mg CaCO3/L), artificial sea water and buffer solutions at pH 5.0, 7.0 and 9.0, at room temperature.

Supporting litterature data from one database and one handbook indicate that TFA is miscible in water, which is consistent with the above results.

In order to fill the key value field required for CSA, the maximum significant solubility value was considered to be equal to the mean density of the substance TFAH.
