Third row transition metal hexafluorides, extraordinary oxidizers, and Lewis acids: electron affinities, fluoride affinities, and heats of formation of WF6, ReF6, OsF6, IrF6, PtF6, and AuF6.

Abstract

High level electronic structure calculations were used to evaluate reliable, self-consistent thermochemical data sets for the third row transition metal hexafluorides. The electron affinities, heats of formation, first (MF(6) --> MF(5) + F) and average M-F bond dissociation energies, and fluoride affinities of MF(6) (MF(6) + F(-) --> MF(7)(-)) and MF(5) (MF… (More)
