Iridium(V) fluoride, IrF5, is a chemical compound of iridium and fluorine, first described by Neil Bartlett in 1965. A highly reactive yellow low melting solid, it has a tetrameric structure, Ir4F20, which contains octahedrally coordinated iridium atoms. This structure is shared with RuF5 and OsF5. It can be prepared by the controlled decomposition of IrF6or the reduction of IrF6 with silicon powder or H2 in anhydrous HF.
