Abstract:

The investigation has been concerned with the infrared characterization in situ of the products of the reaction of boron trifluoride with the nitrogen oxides NO2, N2O4, and N2O3 at ambient temperature. Boron trifluoride gas is unreactive toward the gaseous monomer NO2, but reacts rapidly with gaseous dimer N2O4 to form N2O42BF3. Various chemical and physical properties of N2O42BF3 are detailed. Gaseous boron trifluoride reacts with gaseous nitrogen trioxide N2O3 to form a NO containing compound. Infrared spectral evidence indicate that this is NOBF4. An inexpensive selective ion electrode holder and die for the manufacture of solid state crystals for the electrode holder was designed. Author
