Abstract:

The electrolysis of NH4F in anhydrous HF at various concentrations and anode potentials was studied. If water is present in the electrolyte, the proportion of N2F2 is decreased and OF2 and NF3 are increased. It is apparent that water has a large effect on the electrode reactions and thus cannot be used as a passivator to decrease attack of the anode during electrochemical fluorinations. Additional studies were made to determine the conditions required for passivation of electrodes in liquid HF electrolytes.
