Abstract

"This work had two main objectives: (1) The construction of an electrolytic cell for the production of fluorine, (2) the preparation of some organic compounds containing fluorine. This research was undertaken because of the growing importance of fluorine chemistry, particularly in the field or organic chemistry. Due to the extreme activity of fluorine, it is theoretically possible to prepare many times more fluorine-containing organic compounds than there are known organic compounds today. It has been predicted that fluorine-containing products will be developed to include new and useful dyes, plastics, pharmaceuticals, lubricants, tanning agents, metal fluxes, fumigants, insecticides, germicides, fire extinguishers, solvents, fireproofing compounds, heat transfer media, and other beneficial products. Use may also be made of the volatility of certain fluorides to effect separations of contaminating elements from ores by volatilization."--Introduction, page 1.
