Title: Apparatus and method for the preparation of dioxygen difluoride

Abstract

Dioxygen difluoride, O/sub 2/F/sub 2/, is prepared in high yield by microwave discharge of a flowing gas mixture of F/sub 2/ with or without a carrier gas such as argon or helium with the subsequent reaction of the discharge products with molecular gaseous oxygen downstream from and outside of the region of discharge. The O/sub 2/F/sub 2/ product is collected by cryogenic trapping, and is free of oxygen difluoride impurity and ozone since the oxygen molecules are not dissociated before they react with the microwave discharge products.
