Abstract : A research program was carried out in novel energetic materials. This program was highly successful and resulted in 28 major publications. Highlights of this effort include: the characterization of the XeF5(-) anion which is the first example of a pentagonal planar XY5 structure, completion of our work on a quantitative oxidizer strength scale, the synthesis and characterization of new compounds at the limits of coordination and oxidation, such as XeOF5(-), TeOF6(2-), IOF6(-), IF8(-), TeF8(2-), TeF7(-), and XeF7(+), the study of fluxionality and steric repulsion effects in hexa- and hepta- coordinated species, such as W7, HPF5(-), HSF5, and IOF5, the controlled replacement of two fluorine ligands by one doubly bonded oxygen ligand, studies of the thermal instability of NF5 and the F3(-) anion, the characterization of the N2F(+) cation, N(CH3)4N3, H2N3(+) cation and the SF4(-) and SOF4(-) radical anions, the synthesis and characterization of a new Os(+VIII) compound, OsF4O2, theoretical studies on ONOF and a new family of polynitrogen compounds, the synthesis and characterization of the novel PF4(-) anion and its hydrolysis products, and the electrophilic fluorination of CH4 with F(+) equivalent N2F(+) and NF4(+) salts.
