Mechanistic studies on the formation of trifluoromethyl sulfur pentafluoride, SF5CF3--a greenhouse gas.


The formation of SF5CF3(X1A'), through the radical-radical recombination of SF5(X2A1) and CF3(X2A1), was observed for the first time in low-temperature sulfur hexafluoride-carbon tetrafluoride matrices at 12 K via infrared spectroscopy upon irradiation of the ices with energetic electrons. The nu1 fundamentals of the SF5(X2A1) and CF3(X2A1) radicals were… (More)
