The fluoride ion acceptor properties of OsO4 and OsO3F2 were investigated. The salts [N(CH3)4][OsO4F] and [N(CH3)4]2[OsO4F2] were prepared by the reactions of OsO4 with stoichiometric amounts of [N(CH3)4][F] in CH3CN solvent. The salts [N(CH3)4][OsO3F3] and [NO][OsO3F3] were prepared by the reactions of OsO3F2 with a stoichiometric amount of [N(CH3)4][F] in CH3CN solvent and with excess NOF, respectively. The OsO4F- anion was fully structurally characterized in the solid state by vibrational… CONTINUE READING
