Abstract : The invention relates to a process for preparing fluoro-substituted alkoxides of aluminum, silicon, germanium, titanium, zirconium and hafnium. Hexafluoroisopropoxides of aluminum, silicon, germanium, titanate, zirconium and hafnium are prepared by reacting the chloride of one of the foregoing elements with sodium or potassium hexafluoroisopropoxide in the presence of hexafluoro-2-propanol. The fluoro-substituted compounds obtained are useful as catalysts in polymerization reactions and in the preparation of high purity oxides by thermal or hydrolytic decomposition of the compound. The compounds can also be used in the preparation of high temperature polymers, fluids and lubricants.
