Radon is oxidized between -195� and 25�C by chlorine fluorides, bromine fluorides, iodine heptafluoride, and NiF62- ion in hydrogen fluoride with the formation of stable solutions of radon fluoride. Electromigration studies show that the radon is present as a cation, possibly Rn2+ or RnF+, in several conducting solutions.

The halogen fluoride-antimony pentafluoride complexes may be suitable for purifying air in uranium mines and analyzing radon in air, since they have low dissociation pressures at 25�C and are less hazardous to handle than liquid halogen fluorides.
Evidence for cathodic electrodeposition of radon species
Evidence for the cathodic deposition of222Rn was given in experiments involving the electrodeposition of226Ra and its daughters from an ethanolic solution slightly acidified with hydrogen fluoride.
Physical, Chemical and Nuclear Properties of Radon: An Introduction
Radon is the heaviest of all noble gases and has a total of 36 isotopes ranging from 193Rn to 228Rn all of which are radioactive. Over a large portion of the past 115 years since its first discovery
Predicted compounds of radon with acetylene and water.
HRnCCH is found to be kinetically stable at room temperature with its lifetime limited by the lifetime of the radioactive Rn atom, and the significance of compound formation of radon with acetylene and water is discussed.
Oxidant for Trapping Atmospheric Radiokrypton
RECENTLY, Stein1 presented a chemical method of removing radioactive xenon from the effluent gases of nuclear power plants and fuel reprocessing plants. His chemical oxidant, O2+SbF6−, successfully
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.
