Why does the following reaction occur?



What conclusion about the compound Na4XeO6 (of which is a part) can be drawn from the reaction.

Answer :

The given reaction occurs because XeO64- oxidises fluorine from -1 oxidation state to 0 oxidation state and reduces XeO64- from +8 oxidation state to +6 oxidation state as shown in the equation below :

+8XeO4- (aq) + 2F-1(aq) + 6H+1(aq) +6XeO3(g) + F2 (g) + 3H2O (l)


Hence, we can easily conclude that XeO64- is a stronger oxidising agent than F-.
