Abstract

Electrolysis at platinum, gold and pyrolytic graphite anodes of a molten mixture of CF3COOK-CF3 COONa leads to mainly C2F6 and CO2. Smaller quantities of CF4, C3F8 and C2F4 are also observed particularly at gold and pyrolytic graphite. Voltammetric studies of some oxidation and reduction reactions in this medium are presented.
