Abstract : A number of properties have been determined for the stable xenon fluorides and oxyfluorides. In addition, efforts were made to prepare KrF4 and XeOF2 so that their properties could be determined but these efforts were not successful. The properties measured were melting point, vapor pressure, density, thermal stability and heat of formation. Average energies were calculated from the heats of formation for the XeF bond in the three known xenon fluorides. The strength of the XeF bond was found to be almost the same in XeF2 (34.6 kcal/mole), XeF4 (30.5 kcal/mole) and XeF6 (32.3 kcal/mole). (Author)
