B11 chemical shifts by Tom Cole at San Diego State University

Boron halides

Boron trihalides exchange halogen atoms, this exchange in the neat 1:1 mixture of BCl3:BBr3 was followed by EXSY method [1]. Cross peaks in the 11B 2D EXSY spectrum between the signals from BCl3, BCl2Br, BClBr2 and BBr3 indicated exchange of single halogen atoms per molecular collision since only six cross-peaks between species different in composition by a single atom were observed. Diagonal signals were present in nearly 1:3:3:1 ratio.
