Lewis adduct formation of hydrogen cyanide and nitriles with arsenic and antimony pentafluoride

Author affiliations

Abstract

The reactions of hydrogen cyanide, butyronitrile, cyclopropanecarbonitrile, pivalonitrile and benzonitrile with arsenic pentafluoride and antimony pentafluoride result in the formation of 1 : 1 Lewis adducts, while malononitrile yielded both 1 : 1 and 1 : 2 Lewis adducts. All adducts were isolated and characterized by multinuclear NMR and vibrational spectroscopy, and in most cases by their X-ray crystal structures.
