Abstract : O2BF4 reacts with H atoms at 77 K. to produce O3. O2F2 produces two E.P.R. signals at 77 K. These signals are due to free radicals appearing as intermediate decomposition products and are not due to the original O2F2 or the final decomposition products: free O2 and F2. One of the signals indicates a radical with an unpaired electron, experiencing a hyperfine interaction with only one fluorine necleus. Irradiated samples of O2F2 give a third signal in addition to the two above. O3F2 produces the same two signals as O2F2. The triplet state signal is twice as strong in pure O3F2 as in O2F2 while the hyperfine interaction signal is 50 to 100 times as strong for pure O3F2 as it is for pure O2F2. (Author)
