A chemical approach to deposition of thin films or crystals of metal compounds was investigated. It was of interest to determine whether metal chelates would undergo a vapor phase reaction to form the desired products. Reactions to produce materials of importance as semiconductors were of special interest. Two metal derivatives of fluorinated acetylacetone containing cadmium were pd, one ionic in nature and the other covalent. Composition and structure of the two compounds is presented, together with a few of their physical properties. The covalent cadmium chelate was reacted in the vapor phase with hydrogen sulfide. The experiments were conducted at atmospheric pressure and reaction temperatures of 140 to 240 C.
