The goal of the work is to determine the mechanism by which electrochemical fluorination of ammonium and hydrazinium salts occur in anhydrous hydrogen fluoride AHF. A major portion of the work to date was done to 1 develop a suitable reference electrode, 2 construct an HF handling system for preparing and maintaining AHF at low electrical conductivities, and 3 select a suitable working electrode. The HgHg2F2 electrode satisfies the requirements for a reference electrode, and Monel alloy 400 satisfies the requirements for a working electrode. Monel is now being used as an anode and HgHg2F2 as a reference electrode in studying the electrolysis of NH4F in AHF.
