Abstract:

This reports the results of a three-year program in novel energetic materials. The majority of the results was summarized in 30 manuscripts which are in various stages of publication. Major achievements include the synthesis of the ClF6- anion, the combination of the NCH34 cation with powerful halogen fluorine anion oxidizers, the synthesis of truly anhydrous NCH34F which generated a worldwide renaissance in high coordination number chemistry, the synthesis of XeF5- which is the first known example of a pentagonal planar species, the synthesis of OsO2F4, the development of a quantitative scale for the strength of oxidizers, and the discovery of a new class of vibrationally stable polynitrogen compound.
