Synthesis of zinc trifluoromethanesulfonate

Preparation of zinc trifluoromethanesulfonate

The detailed synthesis procedure with the pictures is provided by,2368.0.html

65 mg of zinc powder is suspended in 30 ml of acetonitrile and 300 mg of trifluoromethanesulfonic was dropped. The immediate evolution of hydrogen gas appears. The reaction mixture is placed in the conventional ultrasonic bath and ultrasonicated until the complete disappearance of the metal by maintaining the temperature at 0° C. Thereafter, the solution is filtered,  the solvent was removed by evaporation under vacuum and dried in a vacuum desiccator for few hours. The yield almost quantitative as zinc trifluoromethanesulfonate with 1.6 molecules of acetonitrile (Zn(OTf)· 1.6 CH3CN).
