Abstract

original image

The simplest fluorinated sulfur(VI) imide has been synthesized starting from Cl2N[BOND]SF5. The molecule of (1) is rigid with the[DOUBLE BOND]N[BOND]F group in an equatorial position. For comparison: CH3[BOND]N[DOUBLE BOND]SF4 and O[DOUBLE BOND]SF4 are mobile, whereas CH2[DOUBLE BOND]SF4 is likewise rigid.
