The reaction of CsF with samples of $Ar/COF_{2}$ with M/R ratios of 1000 to 2000 gave rise to product bands at 555, 808, 930, 1039 and $1514 cm^{-1}$. All bands were very sharp, and the bands at 1039 and $1514 cm^{-1}$ were particularly intense. These bands have been assigned to the $COF_{3}$ anion in the $Cs^{+}COF_{3}$ ion pair, with the band at $1514 cm^{-1}$ assignable to the carbonyl stretching mode, suggestive of lower-than-double bond character. The two bands at 930 and $1039 cm^{-1}$ are both assigned to the antisymmetric C-F stretching mode, indicating a lowering of symmetry below $C_{3v}$ due to ion pairing in the matrix. Reactions to form the particularly chlorinated analogs have been successful as well. The reaction of CsF with several other compounds containing positive carbon centers, such as $CF_{3}CN$ and $CF_{3}COF$ have also yielded definite reaction products. en_US dc.format.extent 106440 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INFRARED MATRIX ISOLATION STUDIES OF THE TRIFLUOROMETHOXY ANION AND RELATED CARBANIONS en_US dc.type article en_US
