Although the presence of fluorine has improved the fire resistance of fluoroalcohol esters in lubricant applications, data on other classes of fluorinated alcohol derivatives are singularly absent in the literature for fluids and lubri cants. Rather than modifying present fluids, our approach is to provide as new base fluids and fire resistant additives, the orthocarbon ates and bis carbonates of the octafluoropentyl and dodecafluoroheptyl alcohols. The objective of the program is to synthesize novel fluorinated compounds which have desirable fire resistant properties and long-term thermal stability at high temperatures. Author
