Xe3OF3(+), a precursor to a noble-gas nitrate; syntheses and structural characterizations of FXeONO2, XeF2·HNO3, and XeF2·N2O4.

Xenon fluoride nitrate has been synthesized by reaction of NO(2)F with [FXeOXeFXeF][AsF(6)] at -50 °C. It was characterized in SO(2)ClF and CH(3)CN solutions by low-temperature (14)N, (19)F, and (129)Xe NMR spectroscopy and in the solid state by low-temperature Raman spectroscopy (-160 °C) and single-crystal X-ray diffraction (-173 °C). The reactions were… CONTINUE READING
