Abstract:

Noble gas fluorine oxidizers of Neon, Krypton, Argon, and Xenon have been synthesized and characterized. KrF and XeF cations have been made with neutral organic bases. Kr-N and Kr-O bonded molecules are also synthesized and characterized. The hypervalent compounds ClFsub6- and XeFsub5- are made. The anions IFsub6O-, TeFsub6O2-, TeFsub7- and TeFsub82- anions are also made. Proof that the ClFsub6- anion exists is also presented. The photoelectron spectra of XeFsub2, XeFsub4, and XeFsub6 are obtained using monochromatized synchrotron radiation. The synthesis and characterization of SbOTeFsub5sub6-Etsub4N, and BiOTeFsub5sub6-Etsub4N salts is completed. Radiotracer experiments involving 18F are also accomplished to show the inability to synthesize NFsub5 is due to mainly steric reasons.
