Application

Hexafluorobenzene can react with:
  • Ethyl magnesium bromide in the presence of transition metal halides to form the corresponding perfluoroarylmagnesium compound that can undergo Grignard reactions.
  • The sodium salt of the appropriate phenol in 1,3-dimethyl-2-imidazolidinone (DMEU) to form the corresponding hexakis(aryloxy)benzenes.

It can be used:
  • As a ligand to synthesize novel ruthenium(0) and osmium(0) hexafluorobenzene complexes.
  • As a solvent and promoter for the ring-closing metathesis (RCM) to form tetrasubstituted olefins in the presence of a ruthenium-based catalyst.

Practical diets for commercial barramundi production rarely contain greater than 10% starch, used mainly as a binding agent during extrusion. Alternative ingredients such as digestible starch have shown some capacity to spare dietary protein catabolism to generate glucose. In the...

We report on the aqueous hydration of benzene and hexafluorobenzene, as obtained by carrying out extensive (>100 ps) first principles molecular dynamics simulations. Our results show that benzene and hexafluorobenzene do not behave as ordinary hydrophobic solutes, but rather present...
