Abstract : The reaction of dioxygen difluoride (O2F2) with perfluoropropylene (C3F6) was shown to produce two new OOF compounds, CF3CF2CF2OOF and CF3CF(OOF)CF3. It appears that the OOF radical is transferred to carbon to produce these new compounds, which have been structurally characterized by F19 NMR and infrared spectroscopy and molecular-weight determinations. A large effort was expended in attempting to separate these isomers, but with no success. The reaction of oxygen fluoride (O2F) with nitrogen tetroxide (N2O4) at low temperatures yielded nitrosyl fluoride (FNO), nitryl fluoride (FNO2), and nitroxy fluoride (FONO2). However, it is not certain that FONO2 was formed by oxyfluorination, since it was also obtained from the reaction of fluorine (F2) with N2O4. FONO2 was also produced during the fluorination of sodium nitrite (NaNO2) and of potassium nitrate (KNO3). The F19 NMR spectrum of FONO2 exhibited a singlet at -200 ppm, relative to trichlorofluoromethane (CCl3F). (Author)
