Abstract : Task 51: Tertiary alkyl- and arylalkyldifluoramines were reduced by organolithium reagents to give products derived from free radical and nitrene intermediates. Syntheses and gas chromatographic purification of 1,1-bis(NF2)hexane and -heptane, 1,2-bis(NF2)cyclohexane, 2,3-bis(NF2)-2,3-dimethylbutane; 2,3-bis(NF2)pentane isomers, and 1,1-, 1,2-, and 2,2-bis(NF2)phenylethane are described. Elimination of HF or HNF2 from certain organic difluoramines yielded ketofluorimines or trifluoroformamidines; chemical reactions of these compounds are discussed. Task 53: Evidence for the existence of stable salts of the N2F3(+) cation is presented. A salt having a composition approaching N2F3AsF6 was prepared. Task 55: The thermal decomposition reactions of HONH3ClO4 studied between 120 and 150 C in sealed systems and at 180 C in an open system. The thermal decomposition reactions of HONH3Cl were studied in the temperature range 130 C and -160 C to obtain an understanding of the decomposition reactions of hydroxylamine free from external oxidants. The chloride was found to decompose by two mechanisms, and the reaction of the perchlorate was found to undergo similar initiating steps, but the presence of excess oxidant increased the reaction rate and led to a different stoichiometry. The results obtained in the open system were correlated to work reported at NOTS. (Author)
