Abstract

Despite its high instability, the cumulene 1,1,4,4-tetrafluorobutatriene was obtained in a crystalline form. Its X-ray structure characterization revealed the presence of a herringbone motif in the solid state (see picture). Experimental and calculated charge desity distributions show, as expected, that the central double bond is shorter and displays a higher charge density than the two outer double bonds.
