Abstract:

The geometric structure of azidotrifluoromethane has been obtained by a combined analysis of electron diffraction intensities and ground state rotational constants derived from the microwave spectrum. Structural data on covalent azides are rare due to the explosive nature and handling difficulties encountered with these compounds. One of the more stable covalent azides is CF3N3.
