Abstract : It is an object of this invention to provide a new and novel process for the preparation of simple nitronium salts. Another object is to provide a single-step process for the preparation of simple nitronium salts. A further object of this invention is to provide a process for the preparation of simple nitronium salts which may be carried out in a glass vessel. Yet another object of this invention is to provide a single step process for the preparation of nitronium hexafluoresenate which may be carried out in a glass vessel. A still further object of this invention is to provide a process for the preparation of intercalants for covalent materials. These and other objects are achieved by reacting nitrogen dioxide, a simple nitronium salt former, and fluorine gas to yield a simple nitronium salt, Equimolar amounts of nitrogen dioxide and the simple nitronium salt former are condensed into a vessel. An at least stoichiometric amount of fluorine gas is admitted into the vessel and the vessel allowed to warm until a reaction occurs to form a simple nitronium salt. The nitronium salt is then separated.
