A novel multiphase minireactor was used for direct fluorination of ethylene carbonate, propylene carbonate, and closo-K2[B12H12]. The results of the direct fluorination reactions are presented and calculated Gibbs free energies for the cyclic carbonates are discussed. It followed that cyclic carbonates are also possible solvents for the fluorination of ionic substrates, for example closo-K2[B12H12]. The figure shows a schematic view of the reactor and its function.
