Bromobis(pentafluorophenyl)thallium(IlI) reacts with many main group elements on heating in the absence of a solvent to give pentafluorophenyl derivatsves of these elements. The compounds C6F5M (M = Cl, Br, or I), (C6F5)2M (M = Zn, Cd, Hg, S, Se or Te), (C6F5)3M (M = In, P, As, or Sb), and (C6F5)M (M = Ge or Sn) have been prepared by this method. Substantial decomposition of (C6F5)2TlBr occurs on reaction with aluminium, gallium, lead and bismuth, but pcntafluorophenyl derivatives of these élements are not obtained.
