Perfluorohexane C6F14: consists of a six carbon chain with fluorine atoms arranged around it (i.e. it is hexane with all of the hydrogens replaced by fluorines). It is a perfluorocarbon or PFC.
Haloalkanes are formed when a halide atom (Fluorine, Chlorine, Bromine, or Iodine) is bonded to carbon in an alkane. An alkane is a compound made fron carbon and hydrogen (i.e. it is a hydrocarbon) with no multiple bonds (i.e. it is saturated). Examples include methane (CH4) ethane (C2H6), propane (C3H8), and butane (C4H10).
