Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA, molecular formula: CF3COOH) is a kind of colorless, volatile and fuming liquid with a similar odor as acetic acid. It is hygroscopic and has irritating odor. It has strong acidic property due to being affected by the electron-attracting trifluoromethyl group with its acidicity being 100000 higher than acetic acid. It has a melting point being-15.2 ℃, boiling point being 72.4 ℃, and the density being 1.5351g/cm3 (1℃).
Mainly used as an fluorine-containing intermediate in fine chemical, pharmaceutical, pesticide and dye. It is used as a raw material in the process of glass coating , sugar and polypeptide synthetic. It is used as a catalyst in esterification reaction and condensation reaction and a protective agent for hydroxyl and amino.
