Addition of anions to perfluorinated 1,1′-biphenyl 1 or naphthalene 2 results in a shift of the 19F NMR signals. However, any specific interaction cannot be assigned to this effect. In order to study the interaction in more detail, the salt derivatives 3 and 4 were prepared and studied by single crystal X-ray diffraction revealing weak anion-π interactions in the solid state.
