A new more powerful ultraviolet source has been employed in the ultraviolet activated reactions of chlorine oxyfluorides. This has resulted in significant reductions in the time necessary for complete reaction. Reactant systems have been limited to the FClO2ClF5 and FClO3ClF5 pairs. Excellent conversions and yields of ClF3O have been realized. Reactions of NaClO4 and NO2ClO4 with ClF have been carried out in an effort to prepare chlorine perchlorate, ClOClO3. Preliminary results are encouraging but poor yields have hampered absolute identification of the evolved reaction product. Samples of IF7 were prepared and converted to IF5O. A redetermination of the sublimation pressure-temperature relationship for IF7 was made and the derived equation is log p sub mm 7.6939 - 1356.6T. Flow pyrolyses of IF5O samples were conducted both in the presence of metal oxides and in simple straight tubes. This approach to IF3O or IF3O2 was unsuccessful. Reactions of KOCF2NF2 and PF5 were carried out with the aim of producing PF5NF2 through NF2 ion transfers from the salt. This was not achieved because one or another of the reactants was degraded by the test solvents or the PF5 was complexed by residual KF. Author
