Synthesis of 1 : 1 : 1 Trifluoropropyne

Abstract

THE simple fluorocarbon radicals CF3. and CF3CF2. are obtained by the irradiation of the compounds iodotrifluoromethane and iodopentafluoroethane respectively. These radicals will initiate the polymerization of olefines, and iodotrifluoromethane with ethytene, for example, yields a polymer of general formula CF3.[CH2.CH2]n.I (where n = 1, 2, 3 and 4).
