The structure of nitrosonium octafluoroxenate(VI), 2NOF � XeF6, has been determined by means of single-crystal x-ray counter methods (R-index = 0.046, weighted R-index = 0.042). The space group is Pnma, with a = 8.914(10) angstroms, b = 5.945(10) angstroms, and c = 12.83(2) angstroms (the numbers in parentheses are the standard deviations to the least significant digit or digits); the calculated density (ρ) is 3.354 grams per cubic centimeter, and there are four formula units per unit cell.

Interaction between Xenon Di‐ and Tetrafluoride with Alkali Metal Fluorides
Interaction of XeF2 or XeF4 with MF (M = Na, K, Rb, Cs) has been studied. Hexafluoroxenates(IV) M2XeF6 containing the octahedral XeF62− anion (in accordance with spectroscopy data) were formed in the
Noble‐Gas Compounds
Noble-gas reactivity was discovered on March 23, 1962 when Neil Bartlett (1932–2008) showed that xenon gas was oxidized by PtF6. The product obtained by Bartlett was initially formulated as XePtF6.
Coordination numbers larger than six among electronegative elements
Abstract A review of recent structure determination of non-metal anions containing simple ligands, mostly halogenes, is given, where the total number of ligands exceeds 6. It will be shown that these
Structural Chemistry of Fluorides and Oxide Fluorides of Nonmetals
The structural features of the nonmetal fluorides and oxide fluorides can now be explained and useful predictions can be made. The same applies in part to the chemistry of this class of compounds.
Die Reaktion von Tellurhexafluorid mit Trimethylamin, Strukturen der TeF5−- und SeF5−-Anionen
Die Reaktion von TeF6 mit (CH3)3N ist eine Redoxreaktion, Tellur(VI) wird von Trimethylamin zu Tellur(IV) reduziert: Mittels der Kristallstrukturanalyse werden die Produkte (CH3)2NCH2–N(CH3)3+TeF5−


Xenon Hexafluoride: Structure of a Cubic Phase at -80�C
The crystal structure of a cubic phase of composition XeF6 has been determined at -80�C. There are no simple molecules in the complex structure which involves 1008 atoms distributed over 1600
Microwave Spectrum of Xenon Oxytetrafluoride
Abstract : The microwave spectrum of XeOF4 was investigated in the region of 20-40 kMc with a conventional Stark modulated spectrometer. Transitions were observed for five naturally-occurring
Xenon Tetrafluoride Molecule and Its Thermal Motion: A Neutron Diffraction Study
A neutron-diffraction analysis of the xenon tetrafluoride crystal structure has confirmed the square-planar symmetry of the molecule and the thermal displacements in the crystal are given.
