A bond angle of 103.8 ± 1.5° and a bond length of 1.413 ± 0.019 Å. have been found for oxygen fluoride by the method of electron diffraction. Combining our data with the spectroscopic rotational constant reported by Bernstein and Powling,2 we arrive at a bond angle of 103.2° and a bond length of 1.418 Å. as most probable values. Special attention was given the problem of weighting the measured ring diameters, and a simple adjustment was finally adopted which may prove useful in other electron diffraction work of this kind.
