Abstract : The structure of O2BF4 and the kinetics of decomposition of O2BF4 were studied. More experiments have to be completed, but it seems certain that the structure is O2(+)BF4(-). The decomposition of O2BF4 is best explained by: O2BF4 (s) reversibly yields O2F (g) + BF3 (g) and 2O2F yields 2O2 + F2. The reactions of O2F2 and O4F2 with nitrogen oxides produced some interesting results, but no new compounds were isolated. Some evidence for NO2OOF was obtained, but if this compound exists, it readily decomposes to O2 and NO2F. (Author)
