Abstract:HFO and HClO (fluorosyl and chlorosyl hydrides) and isomeric molecules HOF and HOCl (hypofluorous and hypochlorous acids) have been studied theoretically. On the basis of nonempiracal quantum chemical calculations (MP2, MP4 and CCD/6-311G**) geometry, energy and vibrational characteristics are analyzed and it is concluded that there is a poor chance to observe formation of HFO. Possibly, bombardment of HF in a solid matrix by 16O could lead at very low temperature to HFO.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
