Investigation of missing links in gold fluorine chemistry by matrix-isolation spectroscopy and quantum-chemical calculations

Xuefeng Wang, Lester Andrews, Knut Willmann, Felix Brosi, Sebastian Riedel— 2012

Noble with a difference: Matrix-isolation experiments and quantum-chemical calculations have led to the characterization of two new compounds, namely first open-shell binary gold fluoride, AuF₂, and a NeAuF complex. Moreover, ArAuF, AuF₃, Au₂F₆, and monomeric AuF5 have been produced and identified under cryogenic conditions in neon and argon matrices.
