Fundamental properties of alkali metal fluorides (MF, M = Cs, K) dissolved in 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP) or in 3,3,3-trifluoroethanol (TFE) are investigated, including solubility, conductivity, and viscosity. Solid-state structures of single crystals obtained from CsF/HFIP and CsF/TFE are described for the first time, giving insights into the multiple interactions between fluorinated alcohols and CsF. Applications in electrochemical fluorination reactions are successfully demonstrated. Read More
