Gregory, Joe, Verlet, Jan R. R. & Bull, James N. (2020). Spectroscopic characterisation of radical polyinterhalogen molecules. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics 22(16): 8284-8288.

Author(s) from Durham


Spectroscopic characterisations of the radical polyinterhalogen molecules IF2 and I2F are reported using anion photoelectron spectroscopy. The corresponding parent anions, IF2− and I2F−, are common products formed in hard Ar–CF3I plasmas and are relevant in the semiconductor manufacture industry. The I2F− species, which is present as the [I–I–F]− isomer, is a “non-classical” polyinterhalogen.
