Teflurane (INN, USAN, code name Abbott 16900) is a halocarbon drug which was investigated as an inhalational anesthetic but was never marketed.[1][2] Its clinical development was terminated due to a high incidence of cardiac arrhythmias in patients, similarly to the cases of halopropane and norflurane.[3]

Chemistry[edit]

Teflurane is 2-bromo-1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane, a haloalkane. It is a gas at standard conditions.[4] The compound is chiral.
