Reactions of dithianitronium hexafluoroarsenate(v) and some plasma studies

Hibbert, Thomas G. (1993) Reactions of dithianitronium hexafluoroarsenate(v) and some plasma studies. Masters thesis, Durham University.



This work is chiefly concerned with the varied reactions of the compound dithianitronium hexafluoroarsenate(V), [SNS]AsF(_6).Chapter one provides a brief review of the properties and uses of [SNS][AsF(_6)], and chapter two outlines the experimental techniques required in this area of chemistry. Chapter three describes the synthesis and characterisation of ortho- substituted 1,3,2,4-dithiadiazohum salts, along with two crystal structures and reduction studies. The fourth and fifth chapters outline reactions of [SNS]AsF(_6)] with double and single bonds respectively, to form novel cations. Chapter six demonstrates the surface area expansion of silver when subjected to several plasma oxidation/reduction cycles. Appendix I outlines the synthesis and characterisation of the radical cation [NSSNCC(_6)H(_4)CNSNS]+.[AsF(_6)]. Appendix II illustrates the ability of [PhNSNSNPh][AsF(_6)] to polymerise thf. Appendix III lists colloquia, lectures and seminars attended by the author, and appendix IV contains supplementary crystallographic data.
