    "SF6 can be prepared from the elements, that is exposure of S8 to F2. Some other sulfur fluorides are cogenerated, but these are removed by heating the mixture to disproportionate any S2F10 and then scrubbing the product with NaOH to destroy remaining SF4." - Quoted from Wikipedia.

    Edit: Chemical Reaction Type - Synthesis

    1(S8) + 24(F2) -> 8(SF6)

    I'm failing to see a question here. Also, whenever you write a measurement like 4.48 or 1.22, be sure to include the units. The assumption is grams, but only because this is related to chemistry. And since it's chemistry someone might think the values could also be in moles.

    It would be much easier to buy than to make. Try Sigma or any of the other big chemical companies.
