Abstract

The molecular geometry of triflic acid is characterized by the following bond lengths (rg) and bond angles from an electron diffraction study: S—C 183.3±0.5, F—C 133.2°0.2, S=O 141.8°0.2, S—O 155.8°0.3 pm, S—C—F 110.3°0.3, F—C—F 108.6°0.3, C—S=O 105.4°1.1, C—S—O 102.3°2.3, O—S=O 109.9°0.7, and O=S=O 122.0°1.3°. The heavy-atom-skeleton is staggered with respect to the rotation about the S—C bond with an estimated barrier of rotation of 15 kJ mol−1.
