Abstract:

Reactions of Xenon fluoride and Trimethyl silyl Nitride at low temperatures gave Trimethyl silyl fluoride and possibly Xenon di nitride as indicated by subsequent decomposition to Xenon and Nitrogen. These reactions were erratic in either solventless of Difluoro dichloro methane solvent systems. Trapping the azide radical from the decomposition with a fluoroolefin was not realized. The interaction of Potassium perchlorate and Trimethyl silicon chloride gave Potassium chloride but the expected Me3SiClO3 was not isolated. It was not possible to duplicate the claimed synthesis of nitryl azide from alkali metal oxides Nitrous boron tetra fluoride. An alternate synthesis of Nitrous nitride from HN3 and FNO2 in anhydrous HF apparently resulted in an equilibrium involving Nitrile Azide and NO2HF2. Pentafluorosulfuroxide containing fluorocarbons were prepared by the addition of SF5OCl to unsymmetrical fluoroethylenes and also by the addition of SF5OF to CFC1 CFC1. These new compounds were throughly characterized. Numerous unsuccessful attempts were made to dehalogenate SF5OCFClCF2Cl using zinc and other reducing agents in a variety of solvents and without solvent. Perfluorovinyl cadmium iodide was prepared in DMF solvent and reacted with FNO2.
