Abstract
THE GOAL OF THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM IS TO PREPARE A SERIES OF SUBSTITUTED METHYLENE OXIDE CONTAINING PERFLUOROETHER COMPOUNDS. THE FLUIDS PREPARED ARE INTENDED TO MODEL HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT PERFLUOROPOLYETHERS WHICH WILL HAVE SIMILAR STRUCTURAL FEATURES. THE MODEL COMPOUNDS WILL BE PREPARED USING NEWLY DEVELOPED DIRECT FLUORINATION TECHNIQUES WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO CONVERT HYDROCARBONS OF APPROPRIATE STRUCTURE DIRECTLY TO PERFLUOROCARBONS. THE PERFLUOROETHERS PRODUCED WILL BE USED IN SURFACE STUDIES AS WELL AS IN AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS WHERE THEIR COMPARATIVE STABILITIES WILL BE MEASURED.
