1H, 19F and 15N NMR spectroscopy has been carried out on the soluble hydrogen bonded complex (CH3CH2)4N+F- (uracil). The studies suggest that deprotonation of the uracil does not occur and that in a medium dielectric constant solvent, hydrogen bonding occurs at the N(1)H site. Spectroscopic monitoring of the controlled thermal decomposition of the complex shows that complex breakdown occurs via the uracil anion, HF-2 and neutral uracil.
