3-(Perfluorooctyl)propan-2-ol was synthesized using an alcoholization process. The synthesis consisted of two steps: (1) addition of the olefin propylene to perfluorooctyl iodide to yield the corresponding iodo-adduct perfluorooctyl propyl iodide and (2) hydrolysis of the adduct reacted with water and dimethylformamide to yield the final product. The adduct and product were analyzed using gas chromatography to determine the yield and purity. The optimal conditions for each step of the process were determined, and a 93% yield of adduct and 95% yield of final product was achieved.
