In addition, highly reactive monomers, such as TFE, may be handled more safely as a mixture with C[O.sub.2].[58] Early work examining the free-radical telomerization of TFE in supercritical C[O.sub.2] took advantage of the high solubility of the low molecular weight perfluoroalkyl iodide products to prepare these materials homogeneously (Scheme 5).[64]
