Abstract:

A research program was carried out in novel energetic materials. This program was highly successful and resulted in 28 major publications. Highlights of this effort include the characterization of the XeF5- anion which is the first example of a pentagonal planar XY5 structure, completion of our work on a quantitative oxidizer strength scale, the synthesis and characterization of new compounds at the limits of coordination and oxidation, such as XeOF5-, TeOF62-, IOF6-, IF8-, TeF82-, TeF7-, and XeF7, the study of fluxionality and steric repulsion effects in hexa- and hepta- coordinated species, such as IF7, HPF5-, HSF5, and IOF5, the controlled replacement of two fluorine ligands by one doubly bonded oxygen ligand, studies of the thermal instability of NF5 and the F3- anion, the characterization of the N2F cation NCH34N3, H2N3 cation and the SF4- and SOF4- radical anions, the synthesis and characterization of a new OsVIII compound, OsF4O2, theoretical studies on ONOF and a new family of polynitrogen compounds, the synthesis and characterization of the novel PF4- anion and it hydrolysis products, and the electrophilic fluorination of CH4 with F equivalent N2F and NF4 salts. jg
