Xenon Oxyfluoride

The incomplete hydrolysis of XeF6 has been used to prepare a xenon oxyfluoride, XeOF4. The latter is a clear, colorless liquid, freezing at -41�C. The infrared and Raman spectra show that the XeOF4 molecule has a fourfold symmetry axis. The large Xe—O stretching force constant indicates the Xe—O bond has appreciable double bond character.
