Perfluorocarbon compounds have been studied in experimental animals as vehicles for O2 transport in fluid breathing and as synthetic blood. Several are useful because of high oxygen solubility and lack of chemical reactivity. Halogenated perfluorocarbon compounds were synthesized years ago but no commercial application was apparent. Selected brominated perfluorocarbon compounds were evaluated in this study for toxicity and radiodensity. Perfluoro acetylbromide (C8F17BR) has low biological toxicity and satisfactory radiodensity.
