Abstract : The reaction of S2O6F2 with SbCl5 proceeded readily in the vicinity of 3C. In reactions involving a mole ratio of S2O6F2:SbCl5 slightly in excess of 2.5:1, an unstable antimony fluorosulfate was formed. This viscous orange liquid contained at least 4 fluorosulfate groups per atom of Sb. The substance slowly decomposed at 25C in vacuo liberating S2O5F2 and SO3. The orange oil was pumped to constant weight at 25C, and the non-volatile material which remained was a pale yellow solid. The pale yellow solid was found to contain a small amound of chlorine present in a positive oxidation state. In the case of reactions involving a large excess of S2O6F2, the results indicated that a stable antimony compound containing close to 3.5 fluorosulfate groups per atom of antimony was formed. Again chlorine was found to be present in a positive oxidation state, and it is possible that stabilization of the antimony compound occurred through partial formation of a complex R(+)(Sb(SO3F)6-xFx)(-) where R = Cl, ClO, or ClO2.
