Abstract : Reactions of nitrates, nitrites, and hyponitrites with fluorine, chlorine trifluoride, and oxygen difluoride under pressures of about 1200 atm, and 350 were tested to yield new compounds containing an anion comprised of fluorine, oxygen, and nitrogen. Various nitrogen oxides and nitrogen fluoroxides were allowed to react with an alkali metal fluoride at pressures up to about 1200 atm, and temperatures up to 350. Evidence of the formation of an anion comprised of nitrogen, oxygen, and fluoride was not found. When NO2 was the gaseous reactant, the fluoride was converted to the nitrate. Nitric oxide was observed to disproportionate under these conditions to give N2O and NO2. Conductivity measurements were made on liquid OF2 at -196 and -160. The conductance was found to be less than 1.4 x 10 to the -10th power and 5.16 x 10 to the -10th power ohm to the -1 power cm to the -1 power at the respective temperatures. No significant change in conductance was noted when anyone of several gases or salts was introduced into OF2 as solutes. Molten salt systems such as CsNO3--CsF, KNO2--KF, KNO2--KF, 2HF, Na2N2O2--NaF have been studied. No new anions were observed. Electrolyeses of these systems produced no new compounds of interest. Antimony and arsenic pentafluorides react with OF2 and a mixture of O2 and F2 to give the dioxygenyl salt.
