Abstract:

A study was undertaken to find a suitable synthesis for the preparation of perfluoroalkylaluminum compounds. Several of the reactions carried out were unsuccessful The reaction of CF2CFMgBr with AlCl3 in THF resulted in a polymeric substance which upon hydrolysis gave an amount of CF2CFH corresponding to a yield of 50 CF2CF3AlOCH24, but no distillable material could be isoated the reaction of CF2CF2Hg with aluminum powder failed to yield any identifiable perfluorovinylaluminum compound and the reaction of CF2CF2Hg with AlCl3 produced only a polymer. When CF2CF2Hg was treated with AlH3NMe3 in ether, CF2CF3AlNMe3 resulted and the compound CF2CF2AlHNMe3 could be isolated from a synproportionation of AlH3NMe3 and CF2CF3AlNMe3. CF3AlH2NMe3, in polymeric form, was synthesized from the reaction of AlH3NMe3 with CF32Hg. Author
