Thermochemistry of fluoroxy compounds: a linear correlation between O-F bond energies and ^(19)fluorine chemical shifts


The class of fluoroxy compounds ROF has been extensively investigated due to the peculiar chemical properties associated with the relatively weak O-F bond. They have also found generalized use as propellants and in the synthesis of organic and inorganic fluorinated species. In this communication it is shown that these compounds offer the rather unique example of a linear correlation between bond energies and NMR chemical shifts over wide ranges (13 kcal/mol and 100 ppm, respectively), which include the least and the most stable members of the family.
