Abstract:

This report, prepared in response to ATD Work Assignment no. 69, presents limited information gathered from Soviet open source materials available at the Aerospace Technology Division and the Library of Congress. It covers the period from 1958 through June 1964. Information collected from the Soviet open literature does not make it possible to answer one way or another the question of whether higher fluorides of chlorine than ClF3 were prepared or are being produced in USSR. Even a 1963 Soviet source mentioned chlorine trifluoride as the highest of halogen fluorides in connection with rocket fuels. The 1963 Western acknowledgement of the chlorine pentafluoride discovery was duly reported in a Soviet periodical but without comment.
