Abstract:

The reaction of solid FClO2 with excited fluorine at -196 C gave rise to ClF5. The absence of ClF3 in the reaction products led to the premise that metastable species involving ClOF moieties may have been intermediates in the formation of ClF5. Solid N2O4 at -196 C reacted with excited fluorine as NO NO3-. The principal products from the reaction were NF3O and NO3F. A complete examination of the ClF5-FNO2 and ClF5-FNO systems by nuclear magnetic resonance N.M.R. spectroscopy showed conclusively that there were no interactions at -108 to -60 C. Chemical shifts and splitting constants in the mixture were virtually identical to those of the pure components. The reaction of ClF4AsF6- with H2O, N2O3, and CF3CO2 failed to give ClF3O or ClF2O AsF6-.
