CO stretching frequencies of free, gaseous, fluorinated alkoxide ions shift substantially to the blue, relative to those of corresponding alcohols complexed with ammonia. Free -fluorinated ions, pentafluoroethoxide and heptafluoroisopropoxide anions, display further blue shifts relative to cases with only -fluorination, providing experimental evidence for fluorine negative hyperconjugation. DFT analysis with the atoms in molecules (AIM) method confirms an increase in CO bond order for the -fluorinated ions, demonstrating an increase in carbonyl character for the free ions.
