Abstract:

A simple method for the purification of fluorine is described. The formation of NF3 radical cation salts in the low-temperature uv-photolytic synthesis of NF4 salts was demonstrated by ESR spectroscopy. The mechanism of the NF4 salt formation is discussed. Metathetical NF4 salt processes based on NF4BiF6 were studied. A previous literature claim for the synthesis of N2F5 salts is refuted. The novel N2F3 salts N2F3SnF5 and N2F3SbF6 were prepared and the planar structure of the N2F3 cation was established. The reaction chemistry of electropositive chlorine compounds with fluorocarbons was reviewed. The vibrational spectra and force fields of BrF3O, FBRO2, ClF4O-, BrF4O-, and If4O- were determined. The novel oxonium salt, H3O BiF6- was prepared and its properties were investigated. Three patents on the syntheses of ClF3O2, nitryl perchlorate, and anhydrous metal perchlorates were issued.
