Discrete GeF5– Anion Structurally Characterized with a Readily Synthesized Imidazolium Based Naked Fluoride Reagent

Discrete GeF5– Anion Structurally Characterized with a Readily Synthesized Imidazolium Based Naked Fluoride Reagent
Gašper Tavčar, Blaž Alič, Anton Kokalj, Melita Tramšek
The “naked”, the bulky, and the discrete: The reaction of the naked fluoride reagent [(LDipp)H][F] (1) with SiF4 and GeF4 leads to their elusive, trigonal bipyramidal SiF5 and GeF5 anions, respectively. Bulky cation with sterically hindering N,N-substituents prevents the association of GeF5 units into larger anion clusters. The discrete GeF5 anion was structurally characterized for the first time.
