Abstract

Work has been done on the synthesis and physical properties ot the dichlor- (1), dibrom- (2), and bromchlor- {3) dinitromethanes. However no reports could be found on the synthesis of nitromethanes containing fluorine. In this research, attempts were made to replace the bromine atoms in dibromdinitromethane with fluorine atoms by means or various fluorinating agents available. Some of the physical constants of the dibrom-, bromchlor-, and monobrom- dinitromethanes were determined in order to obtain fairly accurate values for comparison with the products from various reactions. The by-products from the synthesis of dibromd1n1tromethane were also studied.
