Problem

The anion (v) is called "BARF" by chemists, as its common abbreviation sounds similar to this word.

Tetrabutylammonium, (CH3CH2CH2CH2)4N+ is a bulky cation. Which anion, when paired with the tetrabutylammonium cation, would lead to a salt that will be most soluble in nonpolar solvents?

(i) A central Cl is double bonded on four sides to O. (ii) A central B is single bonded on four sides to F. (iii) A central P is single bonded on six sides to F.(iv) A central Al is bonded to O on four sides. Each O is single bonded to a C that is single bonded to three CF3s. (v) A central B is single bonded on four sides to benzene rings. Each benzene ring is attached to two CF3s.
