Molecules that exhibit values of electronegativity superior to those of halogen atoms are called superhalogens. A new class of superhalogens, IrF n (n = 1–7) clusters, is introduced in this work. The clusters are found to be stable in the gas phase against dissociation to F and F2. The binding energy of NaIrF4 is larger than that of NaF, suggesting that a new class of salts can be synthesized by reacting IrF n superhalogens with appropriate metal cations.
