Is there a difference between hyrdofluoroalkane (HFA) and albuterol?
I have a chemistry project where I have to draw the structure of hydrofluoroalkane (HFA) and my teacher told me to looke up the MSDS of albuterol?? Are they the same thing and does anybody know the chemical structure or HFA?

HFAs are the propellant used in albuterol inhalants. They are different things, but related in that the HFAs are used in the delivery device. Also, HFA is a class of compounds, albuterol is a specific compound.

Albuterol is a bronchodilator; hydrofluoroalkane is a class of propellants.
