Cool!! 😋

Has anyone noticed that on @amerchemsociety website they have a 'Molecule of The Week' feature?! Love learning ❤ This week is hexafluoro-2-butene. Below is an example of what you get to learn weekly from ACS. 🙂
.
Hexafluoro-2-butene, more specifically (Z)-1,1,1,4,4,4-hexafluoro-2-butene, is an unsaturated, highly fluorinated hydrocarbon with multiple industrial uses. It also goes by the rather bizarre commercial name 1336mzz(Z).
.
Hexafluoro-2-butene is used as a working fluid for organic Rankine power cycles, as a refrigerant for use in chillers, and as a foam-blowing agent. (A Rankine cycle is a construct used to evaluate the performance of steam turbine systems; “organic” refers to the use of an organic liquid with a lower boiling point than water in such a system.)
.
Despite the harmful properties shown in the hazard information table, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approved its industrial uses in 2017 under the agency’s Significant New Alternatives Policy. The driving force for this approval was hexafluoro-2-butene’s short atmospheric lifetime of 22 days that contrasts with ≈8 years for hydrofluorocarbon HFC-245fa, which has similar uses. The compound’s labile carbon–carbon double bond is the key to its short lifetime.
.
Another advantage of hexafluoro-2-butene is its very low 100-year global warming potential of 2 (carbon dioxide = 1) compared with 858 for HFC-245fa. It is relatively nontoxic and not flammable.
