Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Unlike methanol and t-butanol, most other alcohols do not form alkyl hypofluorites when reacting with fluorine, since immediate HF elimination takes place even at low temperatures. Notable exceptions to this trend are the two deuterated ethanols CD3CD2OD and CH3CD2OH, which do produce the corresponding hypofluorites. Their identification and some of the reasons for this exclusive behavior are outlined.
