Abstract

Abstract Reactions and intermediates of C 6F 6 and C 12F 10 after exposure to a corona excited discharge have been studied by the trapping of products into an argon matrix at 14 K. Infrared spectroscopy was employed to identify product species. Several were known chemical species while assignments for several new species are proposed. Both isomerization and fragmentation reaction products were observed. All of the evidence points to formation of the very reactive C 6F 5 radical as the initial product of excitation of C 6F 6 although no product bands could definitively associated with this species.
