Abstract : It was found by F18 tracer studies that the compound O2BF4 has the structure O2(+)BF4(-) and not BF3OOF of some other structure. Also, O2BF4 is probably soluble and unreactive in ultra pure HF. Studies of these solutions are being carried out. The O17 and F19 NMR spectra of O2F2 and what has been referred to as O3F2 were studied. The results for O2F2 were as expected: one fluorine line and one oxygen line. For O3F2 three O17 lines were observed; one of the three was shown to be due to O2F2 and the other two, which were of equal intensity, were attributed to O3F2. The F19 spectra of O3F2 consisted of two closely spaced lines and as in the O17 case one of these lines was attributed to O2F2. The NMR shows conclusively that what has been called O3F2 is truly a mixture of O2F2 and O4F2. (Author)
