Which one of the following does not exist?

(i) XeOF4 

(ii) NeF2

(iii) XeF2 

(iv) XeF6

Solution 1

NeFdoes not exist.

Solution 2

NeF2 does not exist. This is because the sum of first and second ionization enthalpies of Ne are much higher than those of Xe. Consequently, F2 can oxidise Xe to Xe2+ but cannot oxidise Ne to Ne2+.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
