Xenon forms three binary fluorides, XeF2, XeF4 and XeF6 .
Preparation of Xenon-fluorine compounds:
Properties of Xenon-fluorine compounds:
XeF2 is linear, XeF4 is square planar and XeF6 is distorted octahedral.
XeF2, XeF4 and XeF6 are colourless crystalline solids
They are readily hydrolysed.
They react with fluoride ion acceptors to form cationic species and fluoride ion donors to form fluoroanions.
