In 1974 Bartlett & Richardson used salts of the O2 + ion to prepare the first salt of the hexafluorobenzene cation:
$${C_6}{F_6} + {O_2}^ + As{F_6} \to {C_6}{F_6}^ + As{F_6}^ - + {O_2}$$
The salt C6F6 +AsF6 - is a simple paramagnet and the crystal structure is related to that of cesium chloride with each discrete ion rhombohedrally coordinated by eight ions of the other kind.
