Abstract : The structure of O2BF4 and the kinetics of decomposition of O2BF4 were studied. The structure was shown to be O2(+)BF4(-). The decomposition of O2BF is best explained in terms of an OOF radical. O17 and F19 NMR spectroscopy demonstrated that O3F3 does not exist as such, but is truly a mixture of O2F2 and O4F2. It was shown that both O2F2 and O4F2 are sources of the OOF radical and the use of O4F2 is the preferred route to OOF compounds. 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 does exist, it readily decomposes to O2 and NO2F. (Author)
