Experimental and theoretical investigation of simple terminal group 6 arsenide As[triple bond]MF3 molecules.


Laser-ablated group 6 metal atoms react with NF3 and PF3 to form the simple lowest energy N[triple bond]MF3 and P[triple bond]MX3 products, and this investigation has been extended to AsF3. Mo and W atoms react with AsF3 upon excitation by laser ablation or UV irradiation to form stable trigonal As[triple bond]MF3 terminal arsenides. These molecules are… (More)
