Why can't you prepare Boron Trifluoride by reacting B2O3 with Carbon and Fluorine?
B2O3 + 3C + X2 ---> 2BX3 + 3CO
Why won't this work with Fluorine?
(This is not a duplicate, as the question being referred to is merely a method to synthesize Boron Triflouride. This question was concerned with why it can't be created using the given process.)
