The synthesis of fluorine-containing organic compounds

Mixtures of iodine pentafluoride and iodine, and bromine trifluoride and bromine have been shown to behave as iodine monofluoride and bromine monofluoride respectively in their reactions with fluoro-olefins. Several fluoro-olefins have been used and excellent yields of the corresponding iodo- or bromofluoroalkanes obtained. A similar reaction, using a mixture of bromine and chlorine as a source of bromine chloride, has also been investigated. Reactions of iodine monochloride and iodine monobromide with chlorotrifluoroethylene previously described in the literature, were reinvestigated and disclosed a discrepancy with the previous report.
