The chemistry of trifluoroethene

Gilani, Anwar H.S (1997) The chemistry of trifluoroethene. Doctoral thesis, Durham University.



The research described within this thesis may be divided into three main subject areas: 1) Free radical additions, and telomerisations with trifluoroethene using alcohols, ethers, amines and aldehydes as chain transfer agents to produce a range of functionalised. fluorinated species. The effect of various reactions of the adduces of trifluoroethene have been studied. 2) Free radical polymerisation of trifluoroethene both with and without solvents and also on the surface of titanium dioxide. Fluorination and pyrolysis of the polymers prepared has been studied 3) Cohalogenation of trifluoroethene with a variety of alcohols and bromine or iodine to produce a range of halofluoroethers. The cohalogenation has been extended to other fluorinated alkenes.
