Organic Superconductors: Synthesis Of The Organic Compound (TMTSF)2BF3OH (bis-Tetramethyltetraselenafulvaline Hydroxyfluoroborate)
The tetrabutylamonium salt (CH3(CH2)3)4NBF3OH was synthesized from KBF3OH and (CH3(CH2)3)4HS04. This salt was then grown electrochemically with the organic molecule TMTSF. Synthesis work was also done on the TMTSF molecule. The anion chosen was selected for its unit cell volume and its polarity.
