|Halonium ions (R2Hal+) are reactive intermediates in electrophilic chemistry and are effective methylating and protonating agents for a variety of compounds. Chloronium cations (Figure 1) in their salts (CnH2n+1)2Cl+(CHB11Cl11 −), at n=1 to 3 and with exceptionally stable carborane anions, are stable at ambient and elevated temperatures. Their temperature of decomposition decreases with the n increasing from 1 (ca. 150oC) to 3 (ca. 80oC) because of increasing ionicity of C-Cl bonds in the C-Cl+-C bridge. At room temperature, the salts of cations at n≥4 are unstable and decompose. It was shown indirectly that the unstable salt of fluoronium ions (CH3)2F+(CHB11F11 −) must exist at low temperatures. The proposed (CH3)2F+ cation is much more reactive than the corresponding chloronium, showing at room temperature the chemical properties expected of chloronium at elevated temperatures. (CH3)2F+ and CH3F+C2H5 are decomposed yielding cations C2H5 + or C3H7 + respectively. Interaction of chloronium cations with chloroalkanes was studied here; for example, interaction of (CH3)2Cl+ with CH3Cl at 160oC results in formation of the tert-Bu+ cation. Interactions of the salts of chloronium ions, R-Cl+-R (R=CH3, CH2Cl), with gaseous and liquid di-chloromethane have been studied. In liquid CH2Cl2, they act as catalysts converting CH2Cl2 to CHCl3/ CCl4 (chlorination) or to CH3Cl/CH4 (dechlorination). The mechanism of the catalytic processes was determined.|
