FOOF and A. G. Streng : furiously fulminating fun

Hydrogen sulfide, for example, reacts with four molecules of FOOF to give sulfur hexafluoride, 2 molecules of HF and four oxygens… and [1.8 MJ/mol]

(H2S + 4FOOF –> SF6 + 2HF + 4O2 + 1.8MJ/mol)

That’s a pretty good energy release for 300g of reagents at 200K. As an aside, other than scouring for pubs and citations, who follows up on work like this? Is there a way to track ongoing research by compound?
