Spectroscopic characterisation of radical polyinterhalogen molecules†
Spectroscopic characterisations of the radical polyinterhalogen molecules IF2 and I2F are reported using anion photoelectron spectroscopy. The corresponding parent anions, IF2− and I2F−, are common products formed in hard Ar–CF3I plasmas and are relevant in the semiconductor manufacture industry. The I2F− species, which is present as the [I–I–F]− isomer, is a “non-classical” polyinterhalogen.
