This is an extremely dangerous compound, it is very sensitive to heat, sunlight, you name it. It can be desensitized by adsorption on powdered alumina and it can be stored indefinitely at a balmy -80 °C. If your going to make this one get your super freezer ready with liquid nitrogen, otherwise be very careful. You do have an industrial super freezer don't ya? Umm hmm, me too.
|hydrochloric acid||400-mL Erlenmeyer flask|
|perchloryl fluoride||graduated cylinder|
Preparation is by reacting an aqueous solution consisting of 8.0 g of piperidine and 250 mL of water with perchloryl fluoride gas at room temperature in a 400-mL Erlenmeyer flask. The gas is bubbled through the solution for 20 minutes at a rate of 170 mL/minute, a bubbler would help increase the efficiency. The solution is then nitrogen purged for 10 minutes, extracted with ethyl ether, washed with a dilute solution of hydrochloric acid, and dried at room temperature under vacuum. Yield is about 66%. You will need a graduated cylinder for measuring liquids.
