Abstract

{The syntheses of three acyclic (fluorosulfonyl)- or ((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)-nitrogen derivatives and their crystal and molecular structures are reported. The structures of bis((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)amine (1; (CF3SO2)(2)NH) and the corresponding anion in magnesium hexaaquo bis((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)amide dihydrate (2; [Mg(H2O)(6)][(CF3SO2)(2)N](2) . 2H(2O)) shed some light on the observed high gas-phase acidity of (CF3SO2)(2)NH. Extensive electron delocalization in the anion [(CF3SO)(2)N](-) from planar, sp(2)-hybridized nitrogen into 3d orbitals of sulfur results in a noticeable shortening of the S-N bond on deprotonation. Similar electron delocalization is observed for the third compound, bis(bis(fluorosulfonyl)amino)sulfur (3; (FSO2)(2)NSN(SO2F)(2)), which features planar nitrogens with nearly six equidistant S-N bonds and extremely short S-O and S-F bonds. Compounds 2 and 3 have not been reported previously. Their unexpected, accidental formation and their characterization will be discussed. Compound 1 crystallizes in the space group Peen (No. 56) with a = 16.404(3) Angstrom
