Abstract : Reactions of aryldiazonium salts with difluoramine were studied with the objective of synthesizing aryldifluoramines. The products of these reactions, however, were fluoroaryl azides or aromatic hydrocarbons, depending on the nature of the benzenediazonium salts. Phenyl azide and isopropyl fluoroformate were obtained in the reaction between isopropyl N-fluorocarbamate and benzenediazonium fluoborate. Analogous reactions were encountered with o-, m-, and p-nitrobenzenediazonium fluoborates. Fluorammonium perchlorate (SAP) was obtained quantitatively in the reaction between isopropyl N-fluorocarbamate and anhydrous perchloric acid. A process based on this reaction was developed, and SAP is now being produced in lots of 70 to 140 g. (Author)
